Optimise your packaging for cost-effective supply chain management!

As businesses face price rises across the supply chain in today’s challenging economic landscape, it’s essential to find areas where costs can be controlled. Rising costs impact every aspect of operations, and companies must seek innovative solutions to mitigate these costs. Packaging is one such area where cost-saving measures can be relatively straightforward to implement and can yield substantial savings. By investing in Right-Size packaging, and optimising your packaging solutions businesses can minimise costs without compromising on protection or branding.


How can you save on your bottom line?

Many businesses tend to default to using standard-sized boxes. When businesses use boxes that are too large for the products they contain, they end up using more packaging materials than necessary. This not only incurs additional material costs but also leads to increased shipping expenses. Smaller boxes that fit products snugly reduce material usage, which translates to direct cost savings.

Efficient packaging minimises shipping costs. Freight carriers often charge based on both weight and volume, known as dimensional weight pricing. By using appropriately sized boxes, and optimising your packaging, businesses can decrease the overall volume of shipments, even if the weight remains the same. This results in reduced shipping fees, especially for lightweight but bulky products.

Right-Size packaging solutions reduce the risk of products being damaged during transit. When items have excess space in a large box, they are more likely to shift and get damaged during handling and transportation. Using boxes that fit products properly ensures that items remain secure and well-protected, leading to fewer product losses and returns. This, in turn, helps businesses save on replacement costs and enhances customer satisfaction.
