Working with a reliable packaging partner can help you manage your projects, reduce your costs, and increase your production efficiency. While many companies consistently work with a great partner, there are instances where you may want to look for a new packaging house. If any of the following scenarios apply to you, it could be time to start looking for another packaging contractor.
Reasons to switch
- Specialized packaging
Some goods require special packaging, especially if they’re large and oddly shaped. These need customized containers, boxes, crates and padding that are designed and tested by packaging engineers.
2. Logistics errors
Packages weren’t delivered on time? Were they damaged or didn’t meet regulations? Hopefully, this doesn’t happen, but if it does, these issues shouldn’t be taken lightly. Evaluate the reason for the issues and decide whether a change in packaging house will avoid future problems.
3. Need more capacity
This is a common issue among growing federal contractors. As your business expands and you see increased goods being shipped, you could exceed the capacity of your packaging house. They may not have enough space to store the parts that are being packaged or workers to complete your projects.
4. Location change
You can cut transportation costs and shorten your supply chain by working with a packaging house that is closer to you. Some instances where this may apply include, if you recently moved your manufacturing facility, if you were working with a packaging house farther away or if you just added a new warehousing center.
If you are experiencing any of these issues, it may be time to find a new packaging partner or to add another packaging partner to your team. By doing this, you can continue to grow your business, save money, and fulfill government contacts.
