With market share in the just about every industry, we are alleviating the burden of the supply and management of packaging and packaging solutions with intense focus on eliminating disposable one- way- dunnage. Our customised management solutions ensure a cost effective alternate to all industries with a quest to optimise their supply chains, demand JIT delivery and 100% visibility in real time.
Be it a standard or customised solution, TrenStar has over the last 2 decades formed partnerships in very many and very diverse industries. With specialised teams of experienced Engineers, IT Developers, Business Analysts and Project managers, we find solutions to any packaging and or information management challenge.
TrenStar is often asked to assist clients in the design and manufacturing of special industry-specific packaging. This can take the shape of a special, hardened RFID and barcode-enabled interlayer for an automotive component manufacturer or an Alpal unit with special anti-septic liner for specialised use in the food processing industry. The value that these customers perceive in having access to an international pool of always-available packaging at a very low all inclusive daily rental rate is however not industry specific and this is evidence in the wide variety of clients that use TrenStar’s offerings.
The same goes for TrenStar’s ability to track any container under its management with the help of barcode and RFID-scanners. TrenStar clients who request it can view the age (time spent on their site) of any and every container that they rent from TrenStar. No nasty surprises and full control!
Moving away from container rental to TrenStar’s Enterprise Asset Management system,TrenStar EAM and Operations Control Centre, the list of clients become greater and more varied. Here are some of the industries and clients that call on TrenStar.
TrenStar assists manufacturers to varying degrees. It ranges from full-blown intelligence, on-site management, IT-development and electronic services such as POD, ASN and SSN for Toyota, to container rental and assistance for Volkswagen, the Ford Motor Company and Nissan. TrenStar also offers services to a multitude of first, second and third tier component manufacturers that serve these and other manufacturers.
