Packaging Optimization

Cut Down on Shipping Costs & Maximize Efficiency

BoldtSmith provides one of the best ways to cut down on shipping costs and maximize your shipping efficiency: Package optimization. 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.

A key component of shipping cost reduction is freight costs. Shipping optimization aims at not only the packaging materials but also focuses on maximizing the number of packages per shipping pallet. This increases shipping efficiency and continues to save you money for years into the future.
