Meraxis and ClickPlastics cooperate on digital distribution

Muri near Berne/Switzerland, 18. Oktober 2022 – As of now, polymers from ClickPlastics AG are also available in the digital customer portal of Meraxis Group. ClickPlastics specializes in the exclusive distribution of plastic granules from Asian manufacturers. The portfolio ranges from commodities to engineering polymers.

"Since our founding, we have been making very targeted investments in the development of digital solutions that benefit not only our customers but also our partners," emphasizes Dr. Stefan Girschik, CEO of Meraxis. "It speaks for itself that ClickPlastics will use our customer portal as a digital sales channel in the future. In addition, we are strengthening our own portfolio with the integration of ClickPlastics. The standard and technical polymers are an ideal addition to our one-stop shop." The cooperation will initially focus on selected markets in Southeastern Europe, including Austria, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Currently, the two partners are also evaluating opportunities for the distribution of biopolymers.

"With its customer portal, Meraxis offers a service in the polymer supply chain that opens up a lot of potential for purchasers and distributors," says Ralf Eberle, CMO of ClickPlastics AG. "We can open up new markets and customer groups through this cooperation. For polymer processors, we thus offer a procurement channel that is particularly fast, flexible and uncomplicated. This significantly simplifies the procurement process and saves buyers valuable time. These are all reasons why we have always been convinced of the digitization of the polymer trade. This is reflected not least in our company name."

Meraxis is one of the first plastics distributors to offer a comprehensive digital customer portal. Among other things, users can make material requests for prime material and recyclates, place orders, and view the status of their orders. They get a 360° overview of current and past inquiries, quotations and orders. In addition, delivery times, status, documents, invoices and payment status are stored in the portal; as well as current market data and price developments. "We are continuously working on expanding our digital services - and making them as hands-on as possible," says Michael Grysczyk, Head of Digital & Disruptive Business at Meraxis. "Currently, our focus is on the upcoming launch of a tracking function that allows customers to track their deliveries in real time. This will significantly contribute to supply chain transparency and subsequently to our customers' competitiveness."

Meraxis is also developing digital solutions to promote the circular economy. A "Material Recommendation System" is already in use, which uses intelligent algorithms to recommend suitable recycled material to processors for their re­quire­ments. Another digital project is dedicated to improving the carbon footprint. Digital services like these are created in the "Meraxis Elevator" innovation network. Together with customers, suppliers and other partners, such as the INC Invention Center, Meraxis is working here on the practical digitalization of processes in the polymer value chain. The partnership with ClickPlastics makes it possible to gather experience for the further expansion of the digital service offering through to entirely new business models.
