Alibris, Inc - Books - (PriorityPak System) - Sealed Air Case History

So, for Mark Nason, vice president of operations for Alibris, and Brian Duarte, director of operations for Alibris, productivity and throughput are important to the success of the company.
"We were excited to learn there is an automated packaging systems available that met our criteria of easy integration into our existing processes, reliability, ease-of-use and reasonable cost," Mark Nason stated. As Nason and Duarte reviewed and evaluated various packaging system options, they kept the "three touch" method in mind. We also discussed at length with company staff the economics of each system," Nason explained. According to Nason and Duarte, they witnessed that the package on a competitor's machine did not always adequately seal on the sides. "The packaging system needed to integrate easily into our existing process, especially in terms of labeling, packaging and branding," Nason added. And although the packaging was tough, according to Nason, it needed aesthetic improvements. "We were floored with the workmanship of the system," exclaimed Nason. According to Nason, the PriorityPak® system enables the company to produce at more than twice the rate achieved with the cardboard "t-fold" packages. The company now averages 2,500 to 3,500 packages per day processed through a single PriorityPak® system. Also, the reports Alibris receives from the post office regarding loss (some due to fall outs or labels being separated from the package) dropped by 25 percent during the first month of using the PriorityPak® system. And, because the system creates the seal of the package adjacent to the book, the book cannot shift and scuffing damage has been reduced. According to Nason and Duarte, there also are a few unexpected benefits to switching to the PriorityPak® system. Initially, Nason projected Alibris would achieve a return-on-investment in six months with the PriorityPak® system. As of mid-July 2005, less than three months after installation, Alibris is 70 percent through its projected ROI. According to Nason, he believes Alibris' annualized savings in postage, materials and labor will equate to more than $325,000. "We are always looking toward the future," explained Nason. "One of the advantages of the PriorityPak® system is its integration into existing packaging lines and its modular design, which enable us to add more applications and features at a later time." As Alibris experiences increased productivity and cost savings with its new automated packaging system, Nason and Duarte contemplate a second PriorityPak® system and continue to seek efficiency solutions for Alibris.
