E-Commerce Packaging

Packaging plays a vital role in your e-commerce fulfillment process, second only to your product itself. It is responsible for protecting your products throughout the shipping process, preventing costly damage and unsaleables. Packaging ensures your product makes a perfect first impression and provides a positive customer experience.

At Crawford Packaging, we will work with you to fully understand the packaging requirements of your products and provide you with the best available options to ensure your products reach your consumers in pristine condition.

The Crawford Packaging Advantage

Crawford Packaging works with world class equipment and materials partners to provide clients with efficient and cost-effective packaging solutions. This has led to the development of innovative programs such as our Wrap It Right program. Wrap It Right is designed to help clients reduce stretch film consumption up to 30% by matching the right film to the right packaging situation. This includes analyzing existing films and stretch wrap equipment for opportunities for stronger, more environmentally friendly materials and proper equipment calibration.
