Our History

Shippers Supply, Inc. founded in 1928, is an independently owned and operated wholesale distributor of shipping, packaging, industrial and productivity/equipment solutions. We are located in Hopkins, Minnesota. Although our roots are in the upper Midwest, we support many companies on a national basis.

What started as a simple packaging distribution company has since dramatically expanded our capabilities and product selection as requested from our long-term customers. Shippers Supply now provides many more services such as manufacturing capabilities to design, test and build custom packaging solutions, implement special stock and packaging inventory management programs, and perform packaging operations assessments. Besides good prices on packaging and industrial supplies, our comprehensive approach now looks for greater business wins in supply chain, logistics, sustainability and customer satisfaction. Our experienced team values the importance of understanding your packaging needs, your business, and helping you find the best-fit solutions to achieve your goals.

We have a steadfast and yet continuous improvement culture, constantly striving to create competitive advantage for our customers. As we look into the future, we intend to continue this journey, adding to our capabilities while executing the basics of being an on time, on par supply partner for our customers. We look forward to the opportunity to help your company deliver a better way.
