Chainalytics to Provide Packaging Consulting and Engineering Services in New Minnesota-based Practice

July 19, 2011 11:44 AM Eastern Daylight Time 

ATLANTA--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Chainalytics LLC, a leading supply chain research, analytics and
consulting firm focused on enabling fact-based supply chain decisions, announced today its acquisition of the
packaging engineering and supply chain solutions consulting business from Adalis Corporation. Adalis is a global
packaging solutions provider that offers package reinforcement and opening technologies to customers around the
world and is a subsidiary of H.B. Fuller Company. The Adalis packaging engineering and consulting team, located in
Minnesota, will form a new practice within Chainalytics that will focus on optimizing supply chain packaging
solutions. Tom Blanck will lead Chainalytics’ packaging optimization practice as principal.

The Adalis packaging consulting team is a group of certified packaging engineers with significant packaging expertise
and a proven track record across multiple industries, including food and beverage, consumer packaged goods, high
tech and retail, in which Chainalytics has a strong existing presence, as well as several target markets like medical
and industrial. The combination of the team’s technical capability with its cost-minimizing, environmentally-conscious
approach strategically expands the scope of supply chain optimization services offered by Chainalytics.

“Packaging design can have a significant impact on overall supply chain performance and sustainability,” states Mike
Kilgore, President and CEO, Chainalytics. “Our new packaging optimization practice will provide deep expertise,
which, when combined with our robust knowledge of transportation and supply chain tradeoffs, will deliver
exceptional value to our existing and future clients.” 

Adalis acquired the Packaging Solutions Group in 2004 and has helped clients save millions of dollars by improving
packaging and logistics design. The team has developed an approach and proven methodology to solve rigorous
packaging and transportation challenges, including those related to high-value and sensitive products.

“Our team is truly excited to join forces with Chainalytics’ supply chain and transportation professionals,” says Tom
Blanck. “Our value propositions are naturally aligned, and our clients will benefit from expertise and experience that
uniquely blends operations, packaging and logistics. Supply chain stakeholders will be able to leverage packaging
further upstream to influence the entire distribution system.” 

Chainalytics’ packaging optimization services will help companies balance the performance of physical supply chain
packaging activities – such as transportation load factors and product protection – against the impact of packaging
on marketing and sales objectives. Services will include:

    l   Packaging Design and Development to improve the design or material use for cost reduction or improved
        packaging performance;
    l   Packaging Optimization to increase shipping densities of containers and improve cube utilization for
        decreased logistics cost; and
    l   Sustainable Packaging Improvement to leveraging packaging materials and processes to reduce emissions
        and improve carbon footprint.
