Industry News - 01/08/2015

Sartorius to focus on its core bioprocess and laboratory businesses | Excellent prospects for customers and employees of the Industrial Technologies Division under a new roof

Goettingen, December 19, 2014 - Sartorius, a leading international laboratory and pharmaceutical equipment provider, is selling its Industrial Technologies Division (Intec) to the Japanese Minebea Co., Ltd. (Minebea) and their partner, the Development Bank of Japan Inc. The respective contract was signed today. The sales price will be determined as a multiple of the Intec division’s 2014 operating profit and be fixed in early 2015. The contractual parties agreed on a 7.5 multiple on the division’s 2014 operating EBITDA. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory clearance by the antitrust authorities, and is expected to close in the first quarter of 2015.
“By selling our Intec Division to Minebea, we are realizing an important cornerstone of our long-term strategy and focus on our two core activities in Bioprocess and Laboratory. Over the past years we have successfully positioned our Intec business as a specialist for industrial weighing and control technologies and have reached healthy profitability levels. Under Minebea`s roof, this business will now gain the critical mass needed to further extend its footprint internationally, an important prerequisite for further growth. I am convinced that Minebea is the perfect new owner for this business because of the complementarity of the product portfolios and the geographical footprint, and also because of their commitment to long-term strategies and premium products,” commented Joachim Kreuzburg, CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board of Sartorius.
The smallest division in the Sartorius Group, Intec recorded sales revenue of 102 million euros for fiscal 2013; its underlying EBITDA margin attained 10.1% at year-end in the prior reporting period. The division employs around 700 people worldwide, 350 of whom work at its German sites in Hamburg, Aachen and Bovenden. The Intec business will complement the Measurement Components business unit at Minebea, which will take on all Intec Division staff.

 

Dimensioning and Weighing: Not Just For Parcel Carriers

Industry News - 01/06/2015

Dimensioning and weighing systems have come a long way over the years. Before cubing systems were conceived, measuring products and boxes in a warehouse was an arduous task done manually with tape measures and rulers. Manually measuring products with tape measures and rulers is not only prone to inaccuracies, but also slows down performance in the warehouse. Utilizing dimensioning and weighing systems is key to enhancing performance in the warehouse and also throughout the supply chain.  The benefits

Dimensioning and weighing systems can provide numerous advantages such as maximizing storage space, increasing sustainability in the warehouse and on the road, and managing and decreasing freight costs.
These systems better facilitate warehouse managers in their load planning process, which is essential to maximize storage space and make slotting decisions easier. When receiving food products that need to be managed and stored in the warehouse, knowing the products’ dimensional information and weight information will help determine the best placement of inventory.

Dimensional Weight Pricing -a game changer

Industry News - 12/10/2014

UPS and FedEx will soon switch to charging by dimensional weight, a change likely to affect a third of ground shipments. An expert in freight bill auditing explains what dimensional weight is and what online retailers can do to minimize their costs.

UPS and FedEx will soon implement what is said to be the largest pricing increase in their company’s history. Both carriers announced they will be applying Dimensional Weight Pricing to all ground shipments, whereas today, only ground packages measuring greater than 3 cubic feet (5,184 cu. inches) are subject to Dimensional Weight pricing (this pricing is already in effect for all FedEx Air and UPS AIR services). This change is leaving shippers scrambling to try to quantify the financial implications. The Dimensional Weight rule change coupled with their annual general rate increase (GRI) only adds to the ongoing budgeting dilemma and pricing confusion.

Basically, a higher billable weight will apply to all packages where the Dimensional Weight exceeds the actual weight. Dimensional Weight is calculated by multiplying the length by width by height of the package (in inches) dividing by 166 (for domestic shipments) or 139 (for shipments to Canada) … unless a customized Dimensional Weight factor has been negotiated, in which case that factor should be used (any fraction is rounded up to the next lb.).....
