“Don’t cry over spilt milk,” the saying goes. But when there’s a line stop on a carton filling machine requiring spare parts, action must be taken immediately. Food producers all over the world rely on the filling lines of Tetra Pak – a leading food processing and packaging solutions company – to deliver products that end up on our kitchen table. For this to happen requires efficient equipment maintenance, including having the right parts on hand. In 2008, Tetra Pak teamed up with DHL to create a new spare parts distribution system based in Shanghai to service customers in the key Asia Pacific region.
