In the packaging optimization process, packaging engineers design a package that balances the costs associated with product damage with material, freight and labor costs. Packaging optimization begins with identifying product damage and cost reduction opportunities. Designing and implementing optimized packaging for transportation is a data-driven process that requires balancing key measurable variables.

Optimized Packaging Comes With Many Benefits


BoldtSmith Packaging uses a data-driven approach to reduce packaging costs. We carefully analyze your current packaging, freight and labor costs and use the data to determine places where you can save money. There are countless different types of packaging materials and methods for all types of product shapes and designs. We increase shipping efficiency and minimize your costs in the process.

Optimized packaging reduces shipping damages. We analyze how the shipping process affects your individual products and costs you money every year. BoldtSmith targets these areas to reduce both damages and costs of unnecessary packaging.

Inefficient packaging leads to excessive materials usage and waste, but by adopting eco-friendly, recyclable materials and right-sizing packaging, businesses can enhance sustainability and attract eco-conscious consumers. Efficient packaging not only reduces shipping costs but also optimizes warehouse space, lowering warehousing expenses and enhancing operational efficiency.

Packaging optimization offers ongoing cost savings by reducing shipping, material, storage, and replacement expenses, contributing to sustained profitability and competitive advantage.

Packaging optimization plays a pivotal role in reducing shipping expenses for businesses. By designing packaging that is not only appropriately sized but also lightweight and efficient, companies can significantly cut down on shipping costs. Smaller and more compact packages require less space, allowing for more products to be shipped in a single load.
