The company

ipack is one of the first private manufacturers of aseptic packaging material in the Persian Gulf region. It was born as a result of the high demand of the regional market for aseptic packaging.

The ipack factory in Abu-Dhabi is one of the most advanced in the world, in the printing & packaging sector, production efficiency and an organization at the highest levels, which have allowed this start-up to compete in the world with a giant called TetraPak. Production levels at the top, with 2 billion packages produced in 2019 and an industrial model based on logistics, automation 4.0, data exchange at all levels.


Management of plant logistics, from the acceptance of the raw material to the shipment of the finished product.


Through whSystem it manages, in fact, the entire intralogistics chain, from the acceptance of raw materials, to the feeding of production lines, up to the management of the finished product and container loading shipment.

Operators interface with the WMS both through dedicated workstations and, for field operations, with radio frequency terminals.

The handling in the plant takes place exclusively through LGVs to which the WMS gives the handling missions and not only for raw materials, semi-finished products and finished products, but also for containers and waste materials. The coils are moved by LGV equipped with clamps, while the other materials are moved by LGV forks. The WMS is not only responsible for the management of raw materials, semi-finished and finished products, but also assumes the management of the warehouse of consumables such as pallets, films, cores, tapes, etc. and the spare parts warehouse containing spare parts useful for the maintenance of the plant, and the cliché warehouse, ie the area dedicated to the conservation of printing matrices. To compress production activation times as much as possible, the activities of the Abu Dhabi production logistics plant were started before the integration of the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) software, for this reason it was necessary to insert specific modules in the WMS to also manage some stages of production, in particular related to the call and delivery of materials and semi-finished products to the various production islands and the generation of the production pour.


The choice to adopt this type of solution has brought advantages in terms of flexibility and scalability, important factors given the impressive growth to which iPack is accustoming us. Using the same LGVs both for the management of all warehouses and for feeding the production lines offers interesting advantages in terms of productivity, hygiene and safety, moreover, the layout of the storage area has a dynamic configuration: currently the different storage areas are sized and allocated according to current production needs and are correspondent in the consequentiality of the different production islands. The spaces can, however, be easily redesigned according to changing needs so that the occupation of the spaces always corresponds optimally to the specific needs of the moment.
