When it comes to shipping and storing your products, a protective packaging solution is very important. Not only to protect the items in the boxes themselves, but also to protect your relationship with your clients. There is nothing worse than receiving a product only to have it delivered broken or damaged. Prevent the stress and financial burden of replacement by starting off with the best protective packaging materials on the market.
There are several different ways to properly wrap your items to protect against damage. One of the most common ways is with air packaging. With an air packager machine and a roll of film, you can quickly and efficiently make bubble wrap on-demand without taking up a bunch of storage space with pre-filled films. One roll of air packaging film can make as much bubble wrap or air pillows as ten and a half boxes of pre-formed alternatives, making them great for businesses of all sizes, including those with limited storage space. The machines are affordable and fast, and inexpensive to run, so you can make enough for just one package as-needed, or use it continuously for your all-day shipping operation.
Another way to package those more particular items is with chip board sheets. Customers will cut the sheets with their specialized equipment to fit around their items prior to packing and shipping. This method is especially popular for metal and equipment pieces that need a solution that perfectly forms to fit every curve of the item. Chipboard sheets may also be used to fill the loose space in boxes where air fill is too large for the space left.
Another great option is to make your own protective packaging using your old boxes. With a cardboard shredder you can recycle your used boxes, mis-prints, and other cardboards that would have otherwise been dumped in the bin. They create a cut pattern in the sheets that makes them bendable and creates a void fill that can help fill the empty space in boxes, wrap form-fitting around your items, etc. Also called warehouse shredders, these systems are typically used in high production environments and large warehouses. The eco-friendly aspect of this solution is a big perk; not only are you using material that would otherwise be wasted, you are also saving money on purchasing other package alternatives.
