Understand Your Product

Before diving into your packaging solution options, start by thoroughly understanding your product. Consider its size, shape, fragility, and any special handling requirements. This knowledge forms the foundation for choosing a suitable packaging solution.

This is a step that you do not want to skip. Becoming well-versed on what your products’ weak points are can help you plan to play to their strengths. Your packaging solution can be tailored to your exact needs and understanding your product is the first step in the process.

Consider Transportation Logistics

Think about the journey your products will take from your facility to the end customer. If your products require long-distance shipping, you may need a durable and protective packaging solution. Working with a supplier with expertise in creating a packaging solution that will withstand various transportation challenges makes all the difference.

Customization for Product Safety

Your packaging solution is often the first impression customers or vendors have of your brand. Your products must show up in the best state possible. Customization will help guarantee that for you and thus lead to more trust in your brand.

Product safety is not one size fits all and it should not be treated as such. It is essential to work with a supplier that provides custom options so that your packaging solution is tailored directly to your product and supply chain needs.

Compliance and Regulations

Depending on your industry and products there may be specific packaging solution regulations and requirements that need to be met. Without proper requirements being met, your products could be denied entry into a country or fumigated at a premium rate. Not following regulations will cost you time and money.
