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.
Here at Conner, we consider how your product will be transported and handled before it reaches its destination. Our integrated packaging solution division will learn the ins and outs of your supply chain to find the packaging solution that helps maximize your profit.
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.
Conner is fully certified to provide ISPM-15 or heat-treated stamps on crates and pallets. We stay up to date on regulations and can help ensure your packaging solution is compliant, giving you one less thing to stress about.
