All items that we buy from market as well as we order from online are supplied to us in a package. The basic purpose of such packaging initially was to offer protection for your item, while handling in the warehouse and also while being shipped.
For all kind of businesses, it is necessary that packaging of the item should be good enough to limit any kind of damage to their items when it moves out from the warehouse.
Nowadays many companies prefer to outsource the business of managing warehouse for boxes so that business companies can concentrate on their core business activities.
Packaging and pallets
For every company it is very important to store their goods in warehouses from where it will be moved to customers. For maximizing the storage capacity, the company must have suitable packaging so that it is possible to store them easily on pallets.
In this way, it will be possible for the packaging to store few numbers of items for storing efficiently and safely on a pallet.
If the packaging reduces the item numbers on a pallet then it will increase the cost for warehouse and supply chain too.
Packaging for minimum damage
Basic purpose of packaging is to reduce damage that may occur after leaving from production. The item will be subjected to different situations where it can damage the item too. Forklifts may drop materials or they may fall from conveyor etc.
So, packaging must be so designed that it is able to protect the item and also to minimize the shipping cost.
Besides that, packaging must be able to protect all the item from any environmental damage, like water damage, extreme temperature, contamination from other goods. For electronic items protection is also necessary from static charges.
There are different kinds of packaging too. There is a separate packaging for finished goods and separate for internal packaging. Both these packaging must be good enough to protect the item for any kind of damage.
