Strategic Alliances

Over the years NICKLIN Transit Packaging have forged strong links and relationships with several key trading partners who are all market leaders in there respective fields. This enables us to integrate our collective market knowledge, expertise, resources and processes in order to maximise the returns we offer our clients, providing bespoke transit packaging solutions designed specifically for their application.



The SCA Group employs 40,000 people, operates across 40 countries, has a turnover in excess of £5 billion and is the 2nd most ‘green’ company in the world (The Independent and EIRIUS survey 2007). Their high-levels of resources together with our flexibility and product ranges has benefited a diverse range of clients across a wide range of sectors. With businesses increasing trying to reduce their supplier base, those suppliers remaining are required to provide a much broader range of products and services, this is where the SCA / Nicklin partnership has been particularly effective. Our expertise in timber packaging combined with SCA's corrugated packaging design and production skills have allowed our clients to benefit from the optimum bespoke transit packaging solutions for their application, guaranteeing product protection at minimum cost.
