Only you know what’s best for your business, so why leave your packaging decisions to amateur packaging providers that can only build standard items crates and pallets? Packaging is not a one-size-fits-all business, and unfortunately a lot of companies don’t realize that. Working with a company that can do custom packaging for you will make your business run more efficiently, more effectively, and at a lower total cost. In an industrial setting, the way that your products are handled, packaged, shipped and stored matters.
Total Cost of Packaging
A piece of your cost, and sometimes overlooked, is the storage of the product both in and out of your custody. Products in over-sized and improperly fitted packaging are less efficient for you and for your customers, take up additional space, and are inefficient from a shipping perspective. By having packaging that is properly tailored to your products, regardless of the numbers of SKUs, you’ll save space in storing and shipping them, and cut down on damage in shipment considerably. Purchasing organizations often look to find just the cheapest packaging by part price, without considering costs throughout the entire system. Custom packaging designed and provided by custom professionals provides the highest value to companies by lowering the total cost of packaging through the product lifecycle. This is achieved through reduce freight (shipping less “air”), and best protection of your parts in transit.
The Right Conditions
When it comes to packing and shipping your products, you want to make sure that they’re protected. Improperly packaged goods are much more prone to damage, as they may not be being treated in the manner that would best ensure their safety. The losses incurred by damaged goods are largely on you to deal with, as customers will surely demand some sort of compensation. Don’t take the chance of delivering damaged goods and losing money because you use standard packaging.
Sometimes we all need a little help, and outsourcing your packaging is a great way to save money, energy, and time, but it shouldn’t be completely out of your hands. You should have control over the decisions that matter most for your business, and the way that your product is packed and stored certainly matters. Once you’ve developed a great relationship with us, which won’t take much time at all, you can leave the quality and accountability to your packaging provider and worry less. We worry more so you can worry less.
