We work with industry-leading suppliers to deliver the most efficient and cost-effective protective packaging solutions on the market.

Protect It Right

The Protect It Right program audits existing protective packaging equipment, materials and processes. The program will identify areas of inefficiency and offer improvements to increase productivity and reduce per pack costs. The Protect It Right program will deliver cost savings of up to 30% on your protective packaging.

How Protect It Right Works

A successful protective packaging plan can literally make or break your products. A properly established protective packaging will elevate a package, increasing durability without creating a feeling of excess materials. This successful use of materials can capture a consumer’s heart, or ensure your products arrive intact for retail sale. A poor protective packaging solution can increase costs and damaged products.

Developing a successful protective packaging solution requires a balance of reliability and cost. When the material is underused products can become damaged, and a replacement must be sent. If too much is used, you can increase shipping cost or become a #PackagingFail as consumers take their issue online and share them with each other.
