BCMPA unveils plans for UK’s Contract Pack & Fulfilment show
The BCMPA (Association for Contract Manufacturing, Packing, Fulfilment & Logistics) has confirmed plans for its Contract Pack & Fulfilment show, which features as an integral part of the UK’s leading packaging event – Packaging Innovations & Empack held at the NEC, Birmingham.
It takes place between 25-26 May, and centres around the BCMPA hospitality lounge, with attendees having opportunity to interact with the organising team, and meet potential outsourcing partners for their contract manufacturing, packing, fulfilment and logistics projects.
A host of industrial sectors, including food segments covering confectionery and snacks, will be represented, and members will demonstrate the rapidly growing importance of the third-party supply chain in its entirety.
From new product development, pack design, filling, contract packing and white label products, through to an extensive range of storage and logistics services for those customers requiring a one-stop shop, visitors will be able to see how effective outsourcing can be achieved.
The BCMPA will also be hosting a session at the show, titled ‘The value of outsourcing manufacturing, packing and fulfilment operations,’ on the Empack Technology Stage at 11 am on the first day.
Neil Daniells from Prolog, Laura Palmer from PHL Fulfilment, and Glenn Hayes from Worldwide Logistics will explore with the BCMPA the core issues and challenges, providing guidance and advice for those looking at outsourcing services for their eCommerce and Order Fulfilment businesses.
Rodney Steel, CEO of the BCMPA said; “Packaging Innovations is not just about packaging materials, it’s also how the products get into the packaging in the first place. That’s where BCMPA members come into the equation. The requirement by retailers, brands and new entrepreneurs for third party outsourcing has never been higher, and we welcome visitors to come along to Contract Pack & Fulfilment to find out more.”
Representing 200 specialists, the BCMPA has become an invaluable resource for businesses looking to explore the benefits that expert third-party supply chain engagement can deliver. Packaging Innovations is an essential part of the exhibition calendar and, given recent global challenges, it provides the perfect opportunity for people to meet face-to-face, supported by the attendance of nearly 280 suppliers.
