Packages’ ability to reduce shipping costs is most pressing problem

Packsize.jpgA packaging solution’s ability to reduce shipping costs is the top-ranking aspect of packaging operations that needs improvement. That’s according to a new On Demand Packaging™ survey, conducted by Peerless Research Group for Packsize Intl. LLC. The study’s findings are based on information collected from 521 top logistics and materials handling managers, who on average ship more than 2,000 packages (primarily corrugated boxes) daily from their locations.

Many managers also ranked a packaging system’s durability, reliability, and performance as characteristics considered most important when evaluating boxmaking solutions. Also of note, 92% of those surveyed indicated that they ship items of varying sizes, with nearly two-thirds of these companies requiring between six to 10 different-sized boxes.

“The study confirms what we are finding to be an industry-wide need for custom-created boxing that eliminates box inventory, inefficient use of warehouse space, and a desire to minimize wasted space and dunnage material within the shipped product box,” says Packsize marketing vice president Brandon Brooks. “These managers are identifying strategies to streamline processes and trim packaging costs. Packsize has a true opportunity to showcase On Demand Packaging™ as the latest evolution in lean manufacturing.”

The full survey is available for download at no cost.
