Advantages of Contract Packaging

You should talk to contract packagers when:

  • Your packaging volume under or over employs your own packaging lines, either short or long term.
  • There are specific, short-term requirements that may be better served by a contract packager with experience or equipment you don't have.
  • There's a short run for a new product test, gift pack and so forth, which may otherwise require the investment on new equipment if not for a contract packager.
  • Promoting your product with increasingly popular marketing weapons for non-standard packaging or promotional inserts require special machinery or labor intense work that contract packaging can provide.
  • The pressure of new business or deadlines created a heavy, short-term workload for which you require experienced help and additional contract packaging services to supplement the efforts of in-house staff.
  • A product may more economically be shipped in bulk to a distant market, then unit packed locally with contract packaging companies.
  • New packaging forms unfamiliar to your staff and equipment may be specified, and contract packagers will know how to proceed.
  • There is no available in-house equipment or expertise for a particular job.
  • Contract packaging comes in handy when the plant is closing for maintenance or faced with labor availability problems.
  • There's a warehouse full of product that needs reworking to make it salable.
  • A new package form is to be market tested before general introduction.
  • There was a corporate downsizing.
  • The company is faced with high investment to meet regulatory and environmental compliances, and contract packaging can provide the quickest and most cost-efficient solution.
