How Value Added Packaging works

Step 1: Design

Our clever designers will look at all aspects of the supply chain to find the most effective packaging solution. Saving costs overall.

Key design factors

  • Protect, contain, display
  • Convenient storage
  • Labour efficiency
  • Lower distribution costs
  • Reduced disposal costs

Step2: Storage

Clever redesign of packaging can save on all aspects of storage.
Smaller, stronger packs and appropriate use of materials often lead to better palletisation, stacking, frequency of supply and storage requirements.

Key storage factors

  • Pack Size
  • Pack Weight
  • Materials
  • Durability

Step 3: Labour

Packaging designed to be lighter, easier and safer to handle and pack can help to remove processes and speed up the supply chain.

Key labour factors

  • Size, weight
  • Bespoke pallets, handles, catches
  • Pack construction
  • Improved assembly/packing/un-packing

Step 4: Distribution

Distribution costs and timeframes can be greatly effected by expertly designed packaging. Smaller, lighter solutions will result in cheaper air freight. Re-useable/returnable packs can speed up processes and clever use of fit-for-purpose materials may open up global sea, land or air based distribution channels. Stronger, stackable, protection guaranteed packaging saves on costly replacements and freight costs.

Key distribution factors

  • Size and weight
  • Strength
  • Durability
  • Legal requirements
  • Re-useable/returnable

Step 5: Disposal

Packaging designed to be returnable, re-useable, smaller or biodegradable can help to reduce disposal costs. Lighter, legally fit-for-purpose materials also allow for an easier disposal process.

Key disposal components

  • Returnable
  • Re-useable
  • Biodegradable
  • Legal
