What is a packaging engineer?

Packaging engineers are talented and creative individuals who are able to reduce unnecessary material usage, implement packaging technology and save you money in production and distribution channels. Having an in-house packaging engineer is an essential part of your packaging supply chain.

They ensure your product’s packaging is safe, looks good and doesn’t cost more than necessary. They discover the most efficient way to communicate, accommodate and safeguard your products from initial manufacturing to final destination. A packaging engineer also has skills that encompass:

  • Industrial engineering and manufacturing
  • Marketing
  • Materials and packaging science
  • Logistics
  • Lead time management
  • Graphic design and visual communication

Why should I work with a packaging engineer?

The biggest reason hiring a packaging engineer is a good investment is because they’ll help you save money by focussing on quality and efficiency. The other benefits include:

  • Package protection from hazards and environmental threats in delivery or storage processes
  • Secure and space-optimized packaging
  • Assurance the brand sustainability and environmental policies are adhered to
  • An efficient packaging process for both secondary and tertiary packaging
  • Assurance the packaging meets the consumer’s end of life disposal options
