Switch from corrugated sheets to save up to 50%
Time for a real-life example of actual cost savings.
Problem: A company was using corrugated divider sheets and was looking for a cheaper alternative. The corrugated dividers were stabilizing the pallet and protecting their products from damage during storage and transit.
Solution: In order to save money, IPS Packaging suggested the customer switch to chipboard instead of the corrugated dividers. Remember: it’s less expensive, lightweight, and a reusable substitute. The company was still getting the same amount of protection and stabilization at a lower cost to them.
Result: The company was impressed with the performance and durability of the chipboard, but they really loved the savings. They were getting a 35% savings over the previous material just by switching products.
