Martin Leeming- CEO, TrakRap Ltd.

  • Presentation Title:

    Sustainability in Retail Ready Packaging

    Presentation Synopsis:

    Martin Leeming looks at how fundamental changes taking place in the retail industry are posing a threat to sustainability and environmental strategies. The drive for more convenience and local stores alongside the increased competition with discounters is leading to smaller pack sizes increased costs of logistics and the inevitable pressure on profit margins. Martin’s organisation, Trakrap, believe they have developed a solution for retail ready packaging that can not only respond to these retail challenges but provide real business benefits from a sustainability and environmental point of view whilst at the same time lowering costs and improving productivity. However in his presentation Martin suggests that in order for the retail industry to benefit from new technologies and ideas, organisations need to become more innovative and be prepared to dig deeper than than just the “quick wins”.

    Speaker Bio:

    Martin completed a BSc (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Manchester, before finishing an MBA at Huddersfield University. The combination of the degree in engineering and the MBA equipped him with both practical skills and leadership qualities, plus a good understanding of a wide range of business processes and functions. Before moving into the packaging sector, Martin was Director in Trading, Supply Chain and Change at Asda for 15 years, until he recognised that he’d progressed as far as he could. Looking for a new challenge, he saw the potential to use the experience gained at Asda, combined with his background in engineering, to create a new type of packaging that he believed would have a real impact on the transit and retail ready packaging market.
