Packaging workbenches for logistics
QMP’s range of packaging workbenches is the ideal solution to Logistics and transport packaging needs.
Packaging is an important part of logistics and transport. If the appropriate precautions aren’t taken, items could be damaged in transit. Not a lot of thought is given to packaging as it’s often considered that it’s the product that’s important. Whilst that is indeed true, the packaging is equally important because it serves the product.
Here are five reasons why packaging is so important in logistics and transport.
If products are not packaged correctly this can have an impact on how it is transported. The correct packaging will enable you to transport goods most conveniently. It will also ensure that everyone remains safe and protected when handling these products during transit.
Damaged products that have not been packaged correctly can be costly. You can lose money through the product and have to then arrange replacements. You could potentially lose custom if damages occur too often. Packaging the product correctly will ensure it arrives intact, saving you both time and money.
You may have to think about regulations if you are shipping your products to certain locations. Sometimes there may be strict guidelines that you must adhere to when transporting goods. If your product is not packaged correctly this could cause delays at customs and could potentially be rejected.
Correct packaging can provide useful and vital information to those that will be transporting your products as well as the end-user. Use labels such as ‘fragile’ or similar instructions to help reduce damages or mishandling, ensuring the product arrives safely.
It’s possible that the product may need to be stored before it arrives at its final destination. Be considerate of others and think about where this may be stored by ensuring the item is packaged correctly. Ensure that the product can be easily stored on warehouse shelving or pallets.
