The importance of packaging correctly for distribution

COMPANIES go through vast production of their products in the manufacturing process.

This includes the likes of Truedor, with their composite doors, so it becomes of great importance that these are packaged correctly prior to their delivery. These composite door manufacturers go through a lengthy process of preparing these doors and disruption comes a key part of this. This is ensuring they do not get damaged at any part of the delivery process. The same process is key across the disruption for companies around the world, which is why this industry has continued to advance.

Preventing transit damage of products is of major importance, as this helps with minimising the cost of damage, returns and enhancing the overall user satisfaction of the services. If the product arrives as purchased then there is a much greater chance of repeat business, in comparison to if there is damage. This is why so much preparation goes into the whole process of packaging and using durable plastic pallets by the likes of PPS, is something that is very common. These offer an anti-slip surface and are perfect for heavy-duty products. These will ensure that products reach their destination with the least potential chance of damage, saving on any added costs on deliveries.

There are many factors that come into play when it comes to distribution, such as the quality of couriers used, and the distance these items are traveling. Each can have an impact on whether an item has any issues on its delivery process and ultimately whether a company is losing a small percentage due to damage or even loss. It could be even more expensive if the product is of high value, such as the previously mentioned composite doors by Truedor.

This is why damage prevention is an everyday challenge when it comes to delivery. It starts with how the boxes are packaged and stacked, in which technology is now being implemented to ensure the perfect structural design. This will then further add to limiting the potential risk of damage to deliveries.

In the actual packaging process, there are also a lot of parts that can be added. These include using a range of foam fitments and coatings, in order to reduce and even prevent surface scuffs and corrosion that is common during transport. Transit damage can be very costly, significantly outweighing any cost savings of under-specifying packaging. This is why it is of such great importance that businesses use the correct packaging needed for the distribution of products. Also by doing so, they are minimising the need for replacements and returns, which is course will increase customer satisfaction and the repeat of sales.
