The automobile is an American tradition. With gas-powered vehicles dating as far back as the late 1800s, our nation boasts a proud history of innovation in the automotive industry and this legacy remains strong today. Cars of the future may mean different things to different people, but there are a few clear trends that have the power to alter our supply chains and automotive packaging solutions for many years to come.
One of the biggest hassles that virtually every business will encounter is product damage during the shipping process. Whether a pallet full of glass bottles topples over in the back of a trailer, fragile custom dishware cracks inside its corrugated box, or those brand-new expensive electronics are subjected to electrostatic shocks, damage can happen at just about any time in the supply chain. Not only is this detrimental to our bottom lines and customer satisfaction, but it also brings with it the unintended consequence of furthering environmental degradation. Shipping is a necessity of modern life, but it can be a huge drain on the natural world at the same time. That’s why it’s important to minimize our shipping needs and our harmful impact as much as possible. When products are damaged, returned, and replaced, we end up significantly increasing the amount of shipping and packaging materials used for the transaction. Thankfully, protective packaging plays an important role in protecting both your products and the environment.
