Better bag performance

With an annual volume of 30 million bags, Lafarge Jordan is a key business partner for Mondi. In 2008, Lafarge Jordan reported a higher yearly average bag breakage rate than a contractually set limit. Thus, Mondi and Lafarge joined forces (Fig.) in order to develop a solution. The goal of both partners was to cut the breakage rate by two thirds by optimizing processes in both plants. Measures for optimization on both sides included standardised training, enhanced palette packaging, reviews of the quality control system, training for bag handling, enhanced stock management procedures and even adaptations of filling equipment. With the improved processes the challenging target was even exceeded.
