There are hidden costs lurking inside your operation and keeping you from being able to grow. The source of most of that hidden cost? Boxes.
They’re time-intensive to handle, expensive to store, increasingly costly to buy, full of empty void you’re paying to ship, and your customers don’t like the waste and mess they create. Bringing carton alternatives and automated right-sizing capabilities into your operation will enable you to unlock labor efficiency, dimensional weight savings, warehousing space, and lock in loyal, satisfied customers.
Is excessive packaging weighing down your operations?
On average, packers use 10% more material per box than is actually required to protect the items inside, and a majority of boxes are 30-60% bigger than they need to be to fit the item inside. And with the rising cost of corrugated and dimensional weight prices, that wasted material could be draining your profits by 16%.
