You finally get visibility to your packaging and will see measurable and sustainable improvements
The PLS process
We identify how much air or void you have in your packages and work close with your team on solutions to eliminate it, forever. You can’t profit by shipping air and dunnage, so why continue to do it?
We can show you the positive impact of right-sizing your packages and translate it to materials, transportation and labor savings, along with other improvements. This is not a one-time fix. We will continue to stay engaged to keep your packaging optimized as normal changes occur in your products, order profile and customers to keep you at the lowest total cost of fulfillment.

The PLS approach
Our unique approach uses best-in-class packaging innovation solutions to attack unproductive cost factors such as dimensional weight, oversizing and other negative accessorial costs. We believe the most logical place to start is in packaging optimization or right-sizing, which translates smaller packs into sustainable cost savings.
