Sample Producer Eliminates Corrugated with ShrinkBox® Film
A manufacturer of hardwood flooring was packaging sample product in corrugated boxes and shipping them to a major retailer. The samples were taken out of the corrugated for display—causing a challenge for the retailers, who had to dispose of the corrugated. Additionally, the shipping costs for the corrugated package were higher due to excess space within the corrugated box.
A Clysar distributor offered Clysar® ShrinkBox® as a solution to the manufacturer’s needs. By implementing an automated packaging solution and utilizing ShrinkBox®, the manufacturer was able to eliminate several packaging elements—corrugated, tape and strapping—as well as improve their productivity. Additionally, due to the ShrinkBox® package being right-sized to fit the product, shipping and warehousing costs were dramatically reduced. And, because ShrinkBox® provides product protection as well as product visibility, the retailer benefited from the ability to now see the product prior to unpackaging, thereby reducing returns.
The Clysar distributor’s creative solution to multiple packaging challenges gave the manufacturer the opportunity to show value and sustainability to the retail chain—solidifying their position long term. Expect the Best… Call a Shrink Master℠.
