Established in 1987, Bell-Carter Packaging has an extensive variety of solutions for everything from primary and secondary food handling to ongoing packaging or re-packaging projects to seasonal and both short-term and long-term production requirements.
Bell-Carter Packaging understood that being an agile supplier in today’s marketplace is essential. It is dealing with changing customer demands, including daily production and fulfillment. At the time, Bell-Carter Packaging was reliant on manual, Excel-based processes that limited agility and introduced errors. Adjusting production due to changing orders in a quick, effi cient and accurate manner (without sacrificing quality) was the basis of the need for an agile customization platform.
“PackManager has improved our traceability down to the ounces that were damaged, wasted and what went into the finished good. We give our customers peace of mind by being able to respond a lot faster than expected.”

Bell-Carter Packaging needed a solution that would be able to:
· Provide its customers insight into traceability and production
· Speed up quality checks, recalls and traceability
After six years of working with Nulogy solutions, Bell-Carter Packaging has seen significant growth that has come, in part, from its increased agility. EDI integrations and the Nulogy customer portal give their customers real-time visibility, yielding significant improvements in customer service. For example, full mock recalls and traceability functions can now be completed in less than two hours.
Today, Bell-Carter Packaging is using PackManager’s Material Planning tool to streamline the procurement process with its customers, ordering with the right lead times to avoid over-ordering and holding inventory for too long.
“PackManager has been a big part of our agility as a company. Our customers come to us asking for fast changes in order to meet the demands of their consumers or to get product to market faster, With PackManager, we’re able to make those changes up front and that flows through the rest of our organization.”
