How to tackle price rises.
In a time of rising prices its worth spending time looking at what you are actually using to pack and protect your products. Is the packaging actually needed? Can you reduce the amount of packaging used? Can you use a different type of packaging to do the same job? Can you use high performance packaging that will offer the same protection with less material?
To combat paper price increases in cardboard boxes its worth checking out our range of stock boxes. We produce these in very large volume so that you can get bulk prices for the quantity that you want and when you want it as they can be delivered from stock.
The plastic tax has meant that the price of many traditional types of polythene packaging will now include the £200 per tonne tax on the import and production of single use plastic packaging that doesn’t contain a determined amount of recycled content. We have a range of pallet wrap, for use either as hand pallet wrap or automatic machine pallet wrap, that are produced with at least 30% recycled content. Our EcoTEK packing tape for sealing boxes will now include 30% recycled content to add to its already impressive line up of sustainable benefits that reduce its carbon footprint. The range of polythene mailing bags that we hold in stock is made almost entirely of recycled content and is 100% recyclable. Our pallet top sheets are made either from high performance thin film or from polyethene with at least 30% recycled content. Our polypropylene and polyester strapping is made with a very proportion of recycled content driving up sensible waste disposal and the demand for recycled material.
With fuel prices increasing this will have an impact on all bulky packaging. Think about ways to reduce this bulk so that as well as reducing the carbon footprint of your packaging deliveries it can also negate the impact these fuel increases may have. On demand paper packing void fill can save on delivery and storage costs as the paper dispenser will convert packs of paper into many cubic metres of sustainable void fill or paper packing. The EcoTEK packing tape system means you get over twice as much tape in one box, more than twice as much tape on a pallet, reducing delivery costs along with reduced core waste and time spent changing rolls. Geami paper which is a die cut paper wrapping system sometimes called hivewrap, beehive paper, activawrap, hexawrap or hexcell paper wrapping saves massive amount of space compared with rolls of bubblewrap.
