A large wholesale furniture company found that swapping corrugated cartons with heavy-duty, clear plastic bags, cornerboard, and strapping virtually eradicated damage claims.
When customers, workers, and employees can see the product in a package, they are more aware of it and handle the package with care, but more often than when they cannot see the product. Packaging that you can see-through also allows the customer to see any damaged product that may exist immediately. There are no hidden damage liabilities when the packaging is translucent.
The wholesale furniture company realized that a great deal of damage to products was occurring and called IPS Packaging to see if they could help.
IPS Packaging suggested the use of stretch film, and heavy-duty, clear plastic bags. The translucent packaging reduced the amount of damage caused during shipping.
In addition to the aforementioned benefits of see-through packaging, switching to plastic bags, stretch film, and cornerboard also helped the wholesale furniture company in the area of cost savings. Because of the switch, the furniture wholesaler was able to cut labor hours by 50% and save a significant amount of money!
