Of course, whether you’re a plant manager, brand manager, graphic designer, or production manager, your primary concern is the bottom line. Did you know, however, that the right packaging can be essential to the effectiveness of that bottom line? It’s true; revenue, growth, and costs are all tied directly to packing and shipping.
The benefits of taking the time to engage in effective packaging best practices can have a major impact on your profits and company. But how exactly does this help? Learn how packaging line efficiency is an essential part of improving your bottom line, and the steps you can take to ensure you get the best results.
Smaller packaging is more effective and possible than ever, with new developments in materials technology. You can now design, dye, and cut packaging that is flexible and works better than glass or corrugated packaging using environmentally friendly materials, which also reduce freight costs because of their size and lightweight structure.
As recyclable materials, these polyolefins are highly efficient and viable as a cost savings measure while allowing you to remain eco-friendly.
More Effective Planning
Last-minute decisions regarding packaging can be devastating to your efforts and bottom line; often, they leave you with no choice but to use heavy, clunky, bulky packaging that ends up costing you money. Plan your packing first, with efficiency an important aspect. Planning in advance will increase your bottom line.
Equipment and Automation
Making the right choice in packaging equipment can make all the difference in the world. Such equipment can greatly increase your efficiency, save you on labor costs, reduce product errors and damage, and thus eliminate waste. All of this together translates into improved packaging line efficiency.
Improved Printing and Labeling Technology
Once upon a time, stick-on-labels were the order of the day. These take a great deal of extra time to design, create, to affix and remove, all of which result in increased costs and a direct effect on your bottom line.
Fortunately, modern thermal and inkjet printing technology has come a long way, and now you can design sleek labeling options that can be printed directly on your packaging as it goes through the production line. Labeling has thus become faster, more efficient and more effective.
Increased Load Capacity
As packaging has become smaller, more flexible, and more lightweight than ever, this allows you to increase the load capacity for shipping. Put simply, more efficient packaging will allow you to ship more products with each load, thus reducing your overall shipping costs. Again, this directly and positively impacts your bottom line. As you save on shipping per unit, your profits will increase correspondingly.
