Benefits of Custom Foam Packaging
Custom foam packaging has various benefits, other than simply protecting the packaged items. These benefits include:
Reduced transport costs – For many businesses, the cost of transporting goods is a huge part of the budget, and can have a considerable impact on the overall price of the goods.
As well as being a lightweight solution, custom foam packaging, when precision-formed according to the size and shape of the items being transported, can help to significantly reduce pallet size, therefore allowing for bigger loads per delivery.
Fewer returns – Items damaged in transit, can hit finances hard, especially transport costs. With a custom foam packaging solution however, designed around individual products, transported items will be better protected from vibration or other external impacts, therefore creating far fewer returns.
Unboxing benefits – With a carefully thought-out custom foam packaging solution, including foam trays, foam inserts and foam printing which includes logos and messages, more excitement is generated when unboxing, which goes a long way in improving customer retention.
Better productivity – When custom-made, foam packaging can be designed to make the packing process simpler and faster with the help of interlocking closures etc., therefore increasing productivity.
Increased sustainability – As any modern business owner knows, sustainability is vital, and is often a requirement by law. With a variety of recyclable foam packaging materials available, businesses are able to tailor their custom foam packaging solution according their sustainability goals, expectations and legal obligations.
