The label industry has continued to face the challenges of producing more labels faster—but in shorter runs. This has resulted in lead-time pressure and the growing complexity of workflows supporting the need for greater efficiencies. At the center is the need for supply chain partners to help brand owners build engaging, omnichannel, go-to-market campaigns, with labeled products at the core of the workflow. It requires Esko’s seamless ‘Packaging Connected’ vision, linking Esko’s broad portfolio of label production technologies with a wide range of industry partners to assure ‘best-in-class’ solutions. This is no better exemplified than Esko’s presence at many booths at Labelexpo Americas 2018.
