Innovative Packaging Optimization

Our shrink bag solution shown above helped realize 53% savings on material cost and 78% reduction in pack SKUs with package rightsizing for a parts distributor.

We completely eliminated the need for the existing corrugated shipping containers, tape, and the internal airbag void fillers and replaced them with an engineered shipping bag to handle the rigors of small parcel shipping.

The operation saw an ancillary reduction in product damage, a dimensional weight shipping savings of $370,000 per year, and realized a 6-week payback on the project.

Annual pack material savings of 53%
Pack labor efficiency increase of 15%
Overall pack cube size reduction of over 30%
Pack SKU reduction (18 to 4) of 78%
