Reduce Packaging Cost

Larger savings opportunities are available in operational improvements such as employing automation equipment and robotics. Leveraging packaging for savings in logistics such as warehouse and packaging operations, storage, and freight has major potential as well.

Automation & Productivity

Technology provides means of increasing throughput and efficiencies. Packaging faster, more metrics, less labor, reliable. This results in lowering your packaging cost per product. This drops right to the bottom line.

Reducing Logistics Costs

When it comes to packaging cost reductions, there can be a focus on the material cost, negotiating low prices, bids, or the too much focus on the price paid for packaging materials. A systems approach can help you identify and execute significant cost reductions in shipping, warehousing, labor and handling costs. Often, there is more potential in the system cost – how packaging is affecting labor costs, consuming facility costs and creating negative impacts on shipping costs.

  • Right-sizing and right-weighting of packaging
  • Leverage packaging for logistics cost reductions
  • Don't make mistake of looking at materials costs and miss the bigger picture of logistics costs
