How much time is spent on the administration of your packaging orders, stocks and suppliers?

Multiple supplier purchase orders generate increased handling in the warehouse. Goods arrive in several batches on different vehicles, creating extra handling and additional paperwork, from purchase orders through to invoices.

By consolidating your supplier base, or switching to a single supplier who can deliver all of your packaging requirements, you can make substantial savings and develop a more streamlined operation.

Using online purchasing systems will also contribute to transforming the speed and efficiency of your packaging operation. The systems store all the information you need to manage your packaging stocks quickly and effectively, ensuring you always have the right packaging products exactly when and where required.
