There are a lot of considerations to keep in mind while packing your goods. Packaging affects your product at every step of its life cycle. When you buy it for the first time, it's an investment. You pay for the weight when you send it. Customers and merchants alike will have an opinion once it reaches the stores. Is there a more effective method to package your product? Since everyone's situation is unique, there is no one-size-fits-all solution.
Global Packaging Solutions by Karlville is here to assist you if you need assistance with pouch packing. We produce a wide range of pouch conversion and filling equipment. We've been in the pouch packing business for a long time, too. We can help you determine the ideal method to package your goods, whether it's a bottle of soda or a jar of motor oil.
Having said that, there are a few factors to keep in mind before making a final choice. A summary of the most critical aspects is provided below.
When it comes to packing, the most important consideration is how much it will cost you. For example, shipping $0.99 packs of chewing gum in separate bubble packaging is a waste of money. Just like with selling hydrochloric acid in bulk, you'll need to make sure your container meets EPA, OSHA, and any other applicable hazardous regulations you may encounter.
When purchasing in bulk, even the smallest expenditures per unit might add up to a large sum. Packaging that is both flexible and lightweight may only save you a few cents per unit. However, depending on your entire volume, this might equate to tens of thousands of dollars or even more.
It's easy to miss the fact that packing must be sent. You must ship your goods with all of that weight included since it adds to the total weight of your product. However, you must first get your packing delivered to you. To put it simply: heavier packing implies more fuel and driving time, as well as more time and man-hours unloading.
Flexible, collapsible packaging is cost-effective and simple to transport. If you haven't read about how pouch packing may lower your shipping costs previously, it's worth your time to check it out again. There are 35 times more flexible pouches per semi-trailer compared to rigid packing. That works out to a savings of more than 97%. Wouldn't you leap at the chance to save 97% on all of your company expenses if you were informed that you could?
Flexible packaging is something we've previously touched on. Let's take a closer look at this. First and foremost, the kind of goods you're selling will dictate the packing material you use. Although we specialise in flexible plastic pouches, they aren't the greatest solution for everyone.
Ground beef, gravel, and masking tape are all examples of products whose pouch packaging would be a poor choice. Pouch packaging, on the other hand, is a fantastic option for items that may be used as a pouch. Shipment costs may be reduced and the system is readily expandable. With only a few minutes of manual effort, the identical machine can be converted to fill 12-ounce pouches instead of 4-ounce ones.
It's not only your merchants that will be impacted by your packaging decisions. Their merchandising possibilities are affected, as well as their profit margins. As a result, your retail partners will have to worry less about fraudulent returns since pouch packing is typically more difficult to tamper with. It's also possible to hang pouch products from pegs or shelves, making them more adaptable.
Customers enjoy the advantages of environmentally friendly packaging as well. According to a recent survey, 72% of millennials would be willing to pay extra for the same product if it were manufactured sustainably instead of using fossil fuels. As we have said, all packaging generates garbage. Packaging in a bag, on the other hand, generates much less waste. Carbon-neutral manufacturing may be achieved by using sustainable business strategies, such as pouch packing.
