Charpak has been driving efficiency savings throughout complex supply chains for over 30 years.  Bespoke packaging is supplied in smaller package sizes allowing for more components per cubic metre, and fewer deliver vehicles to enable improved transportation and fuel savings.


  • Positive location stackability reduces stock handling issues
  • Careful design eliminates catastrophic marking of easily damaged surfaces
  • Fragile sub-assemblies can be carefully protected against transport and production line damage, reducing reject rates


Charpak speeds up sub-assembly, working with robotic automation lines to improve overall efficiency, minimising line time and improving profitability.

Charpak leads the automotive world in increasing the supply chain sustainability.


Every automotive packaging solution engineered by Charpak carries the recycling logo; and Charpak are actively advising major global manufacturers on developing closed loop recycling programmes.  The No1 recommendation for the automotive supply chain, throughout all tiers is to:


  • Significantly reduce the use of non-recyclable products.  This includes polystyrene, laminated cardboard and foam.
  • Where technical and functional requirements allow, replace with bespoke rPET recycled plastic packaging.


Charpak provides bespoke packaging solutions for the automotive supply chain compliant to OEM stringent quality standards.
