Improving Your Bottom Line with Contract Packaging

How Contract Packaging Improves Your Bottom Line

Contract packagers specialize in assembling manufactured products and other goods into their outer and final packaging. Contract packaging services can be as simple as adding a barcode, identifying sticker, or instruction label to a product or as complex as designing and producing the complete packaging solution.

These packaging solutions may include a wide range of packaging types, including:

  •       Blister packages
  •       Plastic clamshells
  •       Plastic bags
  •       Cardboard boxes
  •       And many more

How Your Company Can Benefit from Contract Packaging

Contract packaging providers work with product manufacturers to plan, customize, optimize, and execute the packaging process. Some packaging is readily available, while other packaging solutions may be custom made according to the design of the product and how the manufacturer wants it to be presented to consumers.

The benefits of outsourcing your packaging include the following:

  •       Reduced investment. Contract packagers provide the manpower, equipment, machinery, and production facilities you need to package your products. You do not have to hire extra staff, buy additional machinery, add floor space, or absorb any of the maintenance costs or other expenses involved in packaging. The money saved on hiring a packaging specialist can then be diverted to support your core competencies.
  •       Flexibility. Without a creative team, specialized machinery, and other infrastructure, your business may not be able to experiment with packaging options to create an optimized packaging design that is functional, affordable, and appealing to customers. This flexibility enables you to test new package designs and adjust packaging accordingly based on what works.
  •       Faster output. Contract packagers can begin packaging work as soon as the product is completed. Packaging design can occur concurrently with product design, which means you won’t have to take extra time to develop and fabricate packaging solutions when your product is ready to go to market.
  •       Lower labor costs. When packaging is outsourced, you won’t be responsible for hiring, training, and retaining the labor necessary to produce packaging.
  •       Optimized manufacturing processes. Your company can focus on the production of products without dedicating resources to the development and fabrication of packaging.
  •       Seasonal packaging made easy. While holiday-themed packaging that supports marketing initiatives is easy to obtain from a contract packager, it may prove difficult or inefficient to adjust packaging temporarily in-house.
  •       Sustainability. It is often difficult for a manufacturer to build a sustainable work environment if they add packaging to their workload. Contract packaging provides sustainable and eco-friendly solutions in a cost-effective way.

Keeping Products and People Safe with Pallet Unitization

Working in a warehouse or distribution center, there are many threats to safety. From wayward forklifts, to heavy lifting injuries, to unsecured items like box cutters; there’s always the potential for harm. But when it comes to packages and pallets, there are a number of products that can make handling safer for workers.
The easiest way to improve warehouse safety is to ensure proper pallet unitization. What this means is that all packages are secured on the pallet so that even if they get bumped or jostled, none of the boxes will fall over or become unstable. There are a few products designed specifically for pallet unitization.

The Differences Between B2C and B2B Packaging Design

With entrepreneurship on the rise and the economy seeing numerous benefits, there’s a greater demand for business-related products and services. And the continued growth trend can’t be ignored, as “entrepreneurs are creating jobs at more than twice the rate of established companies,” according to a Financial Times article.

How Employers Can Attract and Retain the Best Talent

Now more than ever, it’s vital for employers to consistently attract fresh talent as baby boomers enter retirement. Similarly, once an employee is on-boarded, companies should make an effort to keep them to prevent the knowledge drain associated with high turnover. Offering a competitive benefits package is the first line of defense, but it’s often not enough. Instead, companies should see what products or services will make employees’ lives easier and help them do their jobs more effectively each day.
