Frasers Group implements packing tech

By Retail Technology | Friday November 20 2020 | UPDATED 20.11.20

Frasers Group, formerly Sports Direct, has invested in new high speed packing technology

Frasers Group will use Quadient’s most advanced automated packaging system to build exact-sized packages  for individual ecommerce orders, single or multiple items, across its premium brands.

The CVP Everest system measures, constructs, seals and labels each parcel in a seamless process – reducing package volumes by up to 50%, cutting cardboard usage by 30% and eliminating the need for void fill. As it makes each package specifically to the size of the individual order, the customer experience is enhanced and trailer volumes are massively reduced – saving transport costs and CO2 emissions. 

Michel Piotrowski, head of automation at Frasers Group, said: “The CVP Everest delivers on our principle goals – to reduce waste by producing premium packages that are perfectly sized to the order, to use sustainable packaging materials and to improve vehicle utilisation by getting more packages into a vehicle, which in turn reduces our CO2 emissions.”

The CVP Everest is to be installed in early 2021 at Frasers Group’s distribution centre in Shirebrook, Derbyshire.
