Most Companies Struggle With….

  • Unpredictable Packaging Prices - The rising costs of raw materials and labor, soaring reliance on e-commerce, and protracted global supply chain disruptions make it hard to count on steady, fixed packaging prices.
  • Unnecessary Markups and Additional Costs – Unless you carefully negotiate and monitor what carriers charge for extra services (distributor markups and delivery fees from third-party manufacturers) these surcharges can account for up to 40% of your cost.
  • Chaotic Supply and Distribution Channels – Building a network to meet all your locations’ packaging needs is time-consuming and expensive. The resulting multiple management points can lead to poor communication, redundant spend, and limited geographic reach.
  • Limited Capability and Low-Quality Service – Too many packaging programs are highly transactional, treating your business as little more than another consumer of generic, “one size fits all” materials and services. Such suppliers’ prices might be lower—but so is their commitment to customer service and satisfaction. 
  • Constant Searching for Better Vendors – When you frequently switch vendors in hopes of more advantageous pricing, vigorous capabilities, and responsive customer service, you have no way to determine your enterprise’s actual total cost of ownership (TCO), and thus its long-term value.
