Our packaging experts will challenge any areas within your supply chain where there are damages and returns and offer corrective solutions.
How much are product damage and returns costing you?
Product damage and returns can be costly to any business, so make sure you have a true handle on your associated costs.
Packaging which is not fit for purpose can increase your damage rates, resulting in increased labour, transport and product replacement costs when processing returns. Not to mention the inconvenience to your customer and damage to your brand reputation.
Never overpack – Using too much packaging can be as bad as insufficient cushioning. Overfilled parcels can easily burst in transit, not to mention added transport costs for shipping extra grams. Reducing the amount of packaging material you use will automatically cut packaging waste and make it easier for your customers to recycle.
Use packaging that is suitable for the job – Think about your product’s destination, storage and the conditions it’s going to travel in. If you are looking for a smarter, more secure way to tape your boxes, gummed paper tape is a perfect solution. Once applied, it creates a firm “bond” with your box, making the entire parcel stronger.
Consider new packaging solutions – If your current packaging does not offer the level of protection your products require, it’s time to look for alternatives. Packaging solutions such as the Korrvu retention and suspension range, Airsac inflatable packaging and Geami paper cushioning are perfect for shipping fragile and expensive items.
