A vision of future logistics

GMI has been a primary contact for logisticians in the car industry since 1980. Today the supply-chain concept is introducing new logic and requirements in the field of logistics packaging.
This means that sector operators must have a wide range of new expertise in R&D, design, technological skills and service. To succeed in this speciality, it is a major asset to know all the professional sectors involved. GMI implements this strategy to provide the most complete service to manufacturers, OEMs and car industry suppliers.

Our design and R&D centres analyse requirements and the demands of customers and users of logistics packaging.
We offer the most productive solutions to new problems of ergonomics, traceability, recycling, transportation, storage, automation, etc. Faced with the reduction in vehicle design time, GMI has created a specific structure to develop projects with simultaneous engineering. We stay one step ahead of our speciality's future with a permanent explorative attitude.
