Redox implements GS1 labelling

Logistics plays an important role in the global economy as businesses rely on logistics to source, produce and deliver their goods and/or services. With an ever changing technological environment it is imperative that companies embrace new technology and seek innovative means to enhance their supply chain. Redox has recently adopted the GS1 standard barcode labelling system to help identify, capture, share and use data within their supply chain.

Redox has an important position in the ingredient and chemical distribution supply chain as it connects customers and suppliers from across the globe. Earlier this year, Redox implemented the GS1 standard barcode labelling system which has seen success for Redox across its global supply chains.

The GS1 standard barcode labelling system creates a common foundation for businesses by uniquely identifying, accurately capturing and automatically sharing vital information about individual products, trading partners, locations, logistics units, assets, shipments and services.

Since implementing the GS1 barcode labelling system, the chain of supply has been improved with the ability to efficiently capture and share data, as it links the physical movement of goods to the information flow along the supply chain.

The  GS1 barcoding system is being rolled out for customers who have requested it with many  seeing benefits for  greater efficiencies, security and sustainability within the supply chain.  

Benefits include

  • Reduced transport and logistics costs due to implementing a unified system
  • Improved productivity as processes are streamlined
  • Improved inventory turnover as accessibility and organisation is improved
  • Decreased asset loss and increased security due to improved traceability of stock
  • Satisfied customers and suppliers due to increased overall efficiencies

Redox places importance on creating value for both suppliers and customers through continual development and innovation of their supply chain. There is no single solution, however through the implementation of new technologies, such as the GS1 barcode labelling system, and improvement in existing processes Redox is increasing its value for all stakeholders with greater efficiencies across the supply chain.

Product Focus – UVASYS by Tessara

UVASYS is known worldwide as the pioneer of the laminated plastic sulphur dioxide generating sheet. It is acknowledged in countries that produce, export or import Table Grapes as the premium product. Its function is to protect grapes from postharvest fungal decay, particularly the devastation caused by the Botrytis cinerea fungus (grey mould/mold) on grapes that are transported and stored.

The unique and innovative construction of UVASYS sulphur dioxide generating sheets ensures a predictable and consistent emission of sulphur dioxide over an extended period. This has the benefit of maximum fungal decay control, combined with minimum sulphur dioxide burn damage.

The superior appearance of stems and berries after months of storage is assured, and the consequent extension in shelf life make Uvasys the choice of many leading European retailers worldwide. These major advantages are in part owing to its unique plastic and wax/sodium metabisulphite matrix laminating process, and in part to the manufacturing process which adheres to tight specifications and stringent quality control procedures. Uvasys was the first sulphur dioxide generating sheet to be manufactured in a BRC certified environment.

Older technology sheets such as the paper/plastic granular Sodium Metabisulphate combination sulphur dioxide generating sheets are unable to provide the precise nature of the UVASYS laminated sheet’s technology and the consistency and control of its sulphur dioxide emissions.

Uvasys sheets are manufactured in batches, every batch of UVASYS sheets has a unique number, which is printed on each sheet. This batch number provides full traceability in accordance with standards expected by customers today. This is another reason why users trust Uvasys.

Continuing research has proved conclusively that SO2 is the most practical and effective method available to destroy or inhibit the growth of the Botrytis cinerea fungus on fresh fruit.

Through the supply of UVASYS, Redox customers are provided with high quality specialty products and technical support to suit their grape needs.

Redox reports $107.9m sales increase

packaging_redox

Redox, the Australian-based chemical distribution heavyweight has continued to out-perform its peers with a gigantic $107.9m+ (19.8%) increase in sales revenue last financial year from $546m to a record $653.9m.

Dipping into its war-chest to supercharge growth, the company has pushed resources into expanding its sales team significantly and investing in enlarged stock positions and as a result grew sales in a number of industry sectors such as Water Treatment, Explosives, Agriculture, Plastic, Food and Mining.

While manufacturing conditions are generally weak leading to tougher trading conditions Redox has been able to take advantage of instability and flux within its competitors to take market share.

Net Tangible Assets of the group now exceed $234.6m which allows a significant fighting fund to make new acquisitions and enter new markets.

Managing Director Robert Coneliano of Redox Pty Ltd, said “We’re immensely proud of this result and it shows the compelling value that we bring to our clients and supplier partners. The sales strategy that we have in place will see us continue to grow in new markets like the US/Malaysia and defend and grow our positions in our fortresses of Australia/New Zealand. Pending orders are currently up more than 30% on the same time last year so the future looks very bright for us.”
