Effective packaging management
07 Jun 2021
Managing your packaging requirements effectively can have a tremendously positive outcome on how your products are packed, stored and distributed across all elements of the supply chain.
Recent times have shown the pivotal part it can play, both in the ecommerce sector which boomed exponentially during lockdowns, and also in the retail sector as stock had to be managed, stored and distributed in ways that had not been seen before.
To facilitate the smooth running of supply chains in an efficient and timely fashion, even when that demand has grown so significantly and often unpredictably, packaging is key to giving continuity and product protection to so many industry sectors.
As packaging professionals, we work with a wide range of customers to ensure their requirements are met. Our comprehensive product knowledge, of both our own industry and many others, allows us to draw on our expertise and knowledge to utilise packaging designs, material types and specific industry requirements such as UN and dangerous good legislation.
Standard or bespoke – the choice is yours
Our packaging solutions are not just about popping your product into a standard box for despatch although we do, of course, work with many customers to support such requirements. We can also provide solutions to help your production lines, and picking and packing facilities, operate as efficiently as possible.
Our range of pick bins and temporary storage can help with driving efficiencies through your manufacturing operation. Or, to facilitate easy packing line procedures, we offer solutions that are easy for you to assemble, and easy for your customer to open and dispose of.
Considering your packaging design, and allowing us to conduct a packaging audit, could save your business considerable time simply by choosing fittings and dividers that are easily inserted into outer boxes, and outer boxes that have crash lock bases rather than ones that require tape. This is just two, from a long list of solutions, that could save you time and money in your own manufacturing, packing and despatch elements of your business.
Furthermore, effective packaging management can eliminate product returns, customer complaints and unnecessary costs associated with both.
We recognise that there are many elements to managing peaks and troughs, but we can work with you to ensure that your packaging always helps with efficiencies, whether that’s from a logistics, warehousing, ecommerce, picking and packing perspective, or to meet a desire to ensure all packaging is as sustainable as possible.
The benefits of using corrugated, and its flexibility in terms of design and strength, can prove to be a valuable asset to many businesses, and those peaks in demand and its knock-on effect can be mitigated to some degree with a packaging solution that supports your business needs.
Simply get in touch and we’ll work with you to achieve effective packaging management, all whilst putting a big tick in your sustainability box too.
