From perishables and medical devices to hazardous materials—different products require different means of protection in the world of packaging and shipping. Some products can withstand the temperatures, physical extremes, and other hazards that come with travel, shipping, and storage, while others require multiple layers of protection ranging from shock absorbing packaging materials and temperature controlled packaging to packaging with the ability to withstand corrosion, moisture and vapor, electrostatic discharge, even fungus and bacteria.
International packaging and shipping has never been easier as industries around the world now have easy access to a large collection of freight companies vying for their business.
The best time to consider Package Design can depend on your type of manufacturing process and your product. Design challenges can be overcome by involving your packaging vendor during the early product development phase.
You have a phenomenal product that you think is destined to become a top seller—if you could just get it into the end users’s hands. It’s true. In all its' greatness, your product will be sitting on your warehouse shelf because it is lost in a sea of other, well, great products. This means, your product will need more than just superior ability and usefulness to help it stand out from the competition. It can be done, and the way to do it is to create unique product packaging that draws the end user in—at first sight.
Sometimes a decent fit is all you need to protect your shipment, so a standard foam divider will likely make the grade. However, when it comes to unique shipments that call for a custom fit, custom foam dividers may be the answer.
