5 Ways To Save Costs On Your Packaging Supplies
In business, we are always looking for ways to save costs and reduce bills. What if we told you that you could potentially be saving many dollars when it comes to your packaging supplies? These are the top 5 ways we believe that you can potentially reduce costs!
1. Measure twice, order once.
When it comes to products like strapping and stretch wrap, there are different sizes and lengths to choose from.
Making sure that you have selected the right product is vital to ensure you order enough to meet your requirements.
This means that you will not need to place more orders that is necessary!
2. Place a larger order to reduce costs.
We often forget that there are several hidden costs involved when it comes to placing orders.
There are costs included with the labour required to check stock levels, administration to place an order and the freight costs to have the order delivered.
These costs add up very quickly, so ordering a bit more than you require will ensure that you are not ordering more frequently than you need to!
3. Purchase high quality products.
The cheapest products are often what people look for but this also means they are not always high quality.
The problem with purchasing a cheaper product is that it will cost you more in the long run.
They tend to be inefficient, break easily, and could potentially cause other damage if faulty, which means it will cost you more in the long run.
At Gateway Packaging, we pride ourselves on the high quality of our products while also continuously working to offer them at the best price possible!
4. Check the specifications prior to ordering.
In the world of packaging, many products come in a large array of shapes and sizes!
If you are looking to order strapping, stretch wrap, press seal bags or cardboard cartons you have hundred’s of options to choose from!
Double checking the specifications before placing an order means you will have the right product for your needs the first time around and again save on costs!
5. Consult with sales staff to ensure you order the right product.
Perhaps you need to order something you have not purchased before or you are unsure about a particular product?
Speaking with the sales team online or over the phone is another way to save you and your business time and money.
Our expert sales team has decades of experience between them in the industry and they can help you select the right product for the job!
