Deep Dive into the company

For CPG Brands

In today’s external supply chain world, there’s more reliance on strategic outsourced partners. That comes with challenges and risks. You lose visibility into production and product customization necessary to meet the demand of your retail customers.

Nulogy enables better tracking, order management, and product customization for your external contract packaging providers, all while building trust and optimal partnerships. This puts you in a better place to satisfy the needs of your retail customers.

Optimize Partnerships: Nulogy provides the intelligence to identify trouble spots, improve on-time in-full costs and speed, and define standard lead times across all brands and product types.

Digitize Your Supply Chain: Your customers require real-time updates on their inventory throughout your production and fulfilment process. Keep customers up-to-date on the whereabouts of inventory, materials and, production delivery times.

Supply Chain Standardization: Systematically track and benchmark suppliers against standardized productivity metrics to identify areas of competitive advantage and inefficiencies for each supplier.

Speed-To-Market: Work on an efficient, agile, responsive supply chain network that eliminates transactional overhead and reduces cycles to launch and promote products.

Centralize Your Network: Nulogy provides a control tower view of key metrics across your entire network of contract packagers and manufacturers, allowing you to understand what’s happening to your products within your external supply chain.

Streamline Communication: Eliminate time spent on non-value added activities such as sending orders, change requests, and status updates. Enable your entire network to focus on value-added initiatives that improve performance.

For Co-Pack Operations

Whether you’re a 3PL, a Retail Packaging Manufacturer, Contract Manufacturer, or Contract Packager, as a strategic partner to your CPG brand customers, you understand the changing landscape that your customers face every day.

Brand customers need suppliers that can meet regional, seasonal, and retailer-specific requirements for product and promotions with confidence, speed, and agility.

Your contract packaging operations need to handle fast changeovers, complex scheduling needs, accurate tracking of inventory and materials, and rapid order changes without sacrificing quality.

Nulogy solutions are designed specifically to manage the complexities of your co-pack operations — going beyond WMS and ERP solutions. Help your customers reduce excess inventory, penalties, high shipping rates, and overtime rates due to tight delivery deadlines and the specific packaging needs of retailers.

Labor Management: Balance fluctuating customer demands while ensuring you have the right amount of high-quality labour that is efficient and cost-effective. Eliminate under-scheduling and overscheduling or overpaying for last-minute overtime to meet your SLAs.

Visibility: Your customers require real-time updates on their inventory throughout your production and fulfilment process. Keep customers up-to-date on the whereabouts of inventory, materials, and product delivery times.

Standardization: Difficulty in standardizing processes, workflows, and sites jeopardizes your company’s ability to grow while delivering orders quickly. Document and streamline operations across your lines and sites to make sure your customers receive the same level of quality and delivery promises.

Operational Control: Eliminate the reliance on memory, intuition, or tribal knowledge to get the job done. Control your operations to manage and improve your bottom line, shorten lead times, and improve quality control.

Production Visibility & Control: Complete visibility over the production and fulfilment process with the ability to drill into data, perform live track-and-trace, and remove bottlenecks as they occur. Stay on track of costs and speed of fulfilment to ensure you deliver on-time, in-full.
