Huge Labor & Material Savings

One of our goals with the business was to fill this role by providing unbiased packaging designs for our customers. Read More

Packaging Engineering Example

A manufacturer of small printers recently engaged BoldtSmith Packaging to optimize their product packaging. The current packaging was an RSC corrugated box with a complicated corrugated die cut. They had already leaned on their current packaging suppliers to develop solutions but were unsatisfied with the results. The goals of the project are outlined below.

  1. Reduce damage during shipping
  2. Reduce labor to pack up the product
  3. Reduce package material costs

Our optimized packaging solutions explored multiple material types such as corrugated, EPS foam, EPE foam, molded pulp, etc. We created these packaging specifications, samples, completed custom transit testing and created a financial analysis comparing the optimized packaging solutions to current.

Packaging Engineering Results

The packaging solution the customer selected resulted in the following changes:

  • Damage: 8% reduction in damage annually
  • Labor: 75% reduction in time to pack the product
  • Material Costs: 50% reduction in packaging material costs

This was a great project that emphasized the value of using BoldtSmith Packaging over a packaging manufacturer for packaging engineering.
