We are constantly looking into new and innovative ways of doing the right thing to build more sustainable solutions for our customers and our planet. We don’t stop at materials, we consider every aspect of an item’s journey to maximise efficiency and reduce carbon footprints.
We build a full picture of the product to fit the packaging around it. Making sure we select the right materials to provide full protection whilst minimising waste. Fitting the packaging around the product allows us to fit more units per container. If you can fit more in a box, you’ll need less packaging and less haulage space. Savings on packaging waste and haulage space all count towards a lower carbon footprint. But don’t forget, this also reduces cost.
In selecting the right materials we consider what would give the best protection, the material weight, the manufacturing process and the material recyclability. We consider if a returnable solution would be better suited and if this would work in the supply chain. Working with most materials allows us to offer an unbiased solution and consider the carbon footprint of the lifetime of the product, not just the manufacturing, so you benefit from the best solution overall.
Yes size matters… It’s to make sure your packaging is working as smart as possible for you. We consider size and shape to not only fit more units per box but maximise the utilisation of haulage space. If you can fit more boxes in your van, lorry, boat or plane, you can ship more. And the more you ship, the lower your carbon footprint. As a side benefit, if you can ship more for the same, your shipping cost is also reduced.
We also consider how you work, which lets us design packaging to be more efficient. Packaging designed to fit machinery and racking improves efficiency and saves time throughout the manufacturing process. More efficient use of machinery is another step towards lower carbon emissions.
We make sure we look at the whole packaging picture to build the right solution. Maximising efficiency, reducing carbon footprint and reducing your costs. We make packaging work smarter.
All our processes, from manufacture to transportation, reduce our carbon footprint. Clearly, this can make a big difference when you consider the size of our company.
