Packaging supplier steps up to meet high FMGC demand

With increasing pressure on supply chains across Australia due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Jet Technologies and its long-term client Rapid Labels have seen high demand from fast moving consumer goods (FMGC) customers. The increase in demand from the FMGC market has resulted in suppliers working double time to produce high volumes of product labels within strict deadlines.

“Jet Technologies has scaled up our operations significantly, with distribution volumes increasing to 500% of what our usual monthly volume of goods sent to customers is. During this high demand period, we have successfully continued to meet demand, so our clients can continue to effectively respond to the needs of their FMCG customers. This is a feat particularly challenging to achieve considering our printing and packaging goods are sourced from overseas markets, many of which have been heavily affected by COVID-19,” said Jack Malki, Director of Jet Technologies.

Jet Technologies has launched a new Melbourne hub that is instrumental in supporting key customers in Victoria, including Rapid Labels, which supplies labels and flexible packaging to many Australian FMGC companies in both the food and beverage and the nutraceutical markets.

“This sudden spike in demand from consumers has led to our customers, particularly those in the FMCG market, being put under a lot of pressure to increase their product throughput, and we’ve had to rise to the challenge of meeting this increased demand. Jet Technologies has supported us to meet this challenge, and we’ve been able to rapidly ramp up and turn around a substantially higher volume of labels and flexible packaging in a much shorter time frame than usual,” said David Power, Managing Director of Rapid Labels.
