Your storage costs are hiding in plain sight. Reduce the amount of packaging stock held at your site, free up your valuable space and improve cash flow by letting us store your packaging.

Are your warehouse racks full of packaging?

If so, perhaps it’s time to review your warehouse management strategy…

Packaging solutions such as air and paper cushioning are less bulky to store yet offer maximum product protection in transit.

If you are ordering large amounts of packaging stock to get the best price and storing it on site, you could be seriously impacting not only your warehouse space but cashflow too.

Macfarlane Packaging can deliver the stock you need just in time (JIT). This will give you the opportunity to free up storage and the money once used to bulk buy slow running stock and perhaps expand production lines.

Inventory management

If you’re short of storage space or need to make better use of it, we can store your packaging goods in a clean, safe environment and deliver exactly what you need precisely when required.


Our inventory management solutions make this choice cost effective and hassle free. They include:

JUST IN TIME (JIT) PRODUCTION

to save space and cost

VENDOR MANAGED INVENTORY (VIM)

services to optimise supply chains

Regional distribution centres

Our strategically located regional distribution centres will provide the vital infrastructure for your JIT supply chain. We offer nationwide coverage, with over 700,000 sq ft of warehouse space.

With the fleet of 100 vehicles ranging from 3 tonnes to 40 feet articulated lorries, we deliver more than 50,000 orders per month.

Online order management

Customer Connect is Macfarlane’s online order management system. This powerful tool allows you to view your purchasing history and order progress and has an excellent reporting function. Customer Connect puts you in control of inventory management and JIT delivery.


Custom packaging

Custom made-to-measure boxes will better suit your supply chain needs. If they are easy to open and return, they can also deliver an improved unboxing experience for your customers. Branding them will reinforce positive association with your brand.


Product innovation

Innovative packaging products can transform your operation, providing enhanced protection from packs and materials that are stronger but much less bulky so easier to store.
