ARE YOU SHIPPING AIR?
On average, shippers only use 60% of the available space in any given box for their products. That means 40% of the shipment is air or filler – and for many products, those ratios can be far worse.
Packaging efficiency has a direct correlation to your transportation cost, and a thus a significant effect on your bottom line.
With our Packaging Analysis service, we help clients save 15% or more of your total supply chain costs.
Our Packaging Analysis examines the following factors:
- Labor, packaging, transportation and warehousing/storage costs
- Dimensional weight based changes
- Automation needs and optimized box sizing opportunities
- Packaging inventory and management
- Damaged goods and return ratios
Our success in Packaging Optimization lies in understanding the relationship of packaging to transportation and warehousing operations. By designing the shipping case to fit product into boxes, boxes onto pallets, and pallets into trucks or containers, we impact your key rate factors and reduce your logistics expenses.
Our team has completed projects for more than 500 clients over the past 18 years, and in many instances we reduced client costs by millions of dollars in the areas of transportation, warehousing, packaging, labor, and material.
