Foam-In-Place Fighting Packaging Peanut Pains
Loose-fill packaging peanuts can create a monstrous mess when opening a package. How many times have you opened your awaited delivery to see nothing but a sea of packaging peanuts glaring back at you?
There is no other choice but to dig into the unholy mess of peanuts in search for your item(s). If you are lucky, you can have everything cleaned up before your kids or pets find them. Otherwise, you end up finding those pesky peanuts throughout your house for weeks to come. As you’re diving into your package, those little Styrofoam devils flying everywhere, you think to yourself, “there has got to be a better way to protect those delicate or awkward shaped products.”
So, what’s a shipper to do? One of the glaring issues with packaging peanuts (besides the obvious issues stated above) is the unbelievable amount of storage space needed to keep them at a facility. When shipping products, you want to ensure that your products arrive in the best condition and damage-free. This means you can prevent receiving those angry phone calls from upset customers because their item was shattered during transit. All this due to poor interior packaging. Is there even a solution out there that can make your life easier, keep your customers happy, and make sure that your products make it through the nightmare of shipping unharmed? Foam-in-place is here to save the day!
