Reduce storage cost across Europe
Evaluating your packaging and warehousing in your European sites can reduce your storage costs and cause knock-on savings across your whole operation.
For example, a 1200x1000m pallet requires approximately 4 square meters of storage space. Think of how many pallets do you need for your European
operation and multiply it. This means a lot of warehouse space and that costs money.
The first stop to understand the cost of your storage operation and how it is affecting your total European packaging spend is to ask yourself a few basic questions:
- How much space is being taken up by packaging?
- How much cash is being tied up in this stock?
- How much of your packaging stock gets damaged while it’s being stored?
NovuPak, as a Pan-European full line supplier of packaging products and services, knows that a close look at your packaging operation will result in significant savings on your storage cost across Europe.
Here are some ideas that will help your company reduce storage costs resulting in real savings:
Reduce Size and Weight
Using the right size and specification of package for your product means you’ll use less in-fill materials (saving more money) and use space better, both within the warehouse (saving on costly floor space) and in delivery vehicles (reducing the space each product takes up).
Providing well-packaged products will help to enhance your brand’s reputation, whereas excess packaging in an environmentally conscious world can have a damaging, negative effect.
Reducing the size of your packaging doesn't mean you have to compromise on protection and risk product damage. Finding alternative packaging designs will help you maintain and, in many cases, improve your product and brand protection.
