Interview with Roland van Bussel, Chief Operating Officer at Moonen Packaging, by Marcel te Lindert

Moonen Packaging is currently building a completely new 20,000m2 warehouse in the Dutch town of Weert. The packaging wholesaler asked Groenewout for advice on the warehouse design, which has resulted in a flexible, efficient and sustainable plan for a warehouse with sufficient growth potential. Roland van Bussel, COO of Moonen: “We initially considered a fully automated warehouse, but Groenewout advised us against it.”

Packaging is not usually associated with sustainability, but at Moonen Packaging they are making a big effort to change that. The Netherlands-based packaging wholesaler is listing more and more packaging solutions produced from renewable raw materials. “Our aim is for 50% of our customers to be ordering packaging made from renewable resources by 2020, and we want that figure to be 100% by 2030,” states Roland van Bussel, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Moonen Packaging.
