The world of packaging for Amazon is evolving to ensure the best possible customer experience. More responsibility is being put on product manufacturers to develop sustainable, optimized packaging solutions that will likely be different designs than what is shipping into big box retailers.
This high benchmark for success is great news for customer’s but a lot of work for product manufacturer’s! That’s where BoldtSmith Packaging can help!
Amazon has developed a list of approved labs that test packaging and product to verify there will not be product or packaging damage during shipping. The step before testing is design and sampling which is where BoldtSmith Packaging can help.
BoldtSmith Packaging does not manufacture, sell or broker packaging. We design and sample optimized packaging solutions for our customer’s. This gives our customer’s rights to own the packaging specifications that they can have quoted through companies that manufacture packaging.
The advantages of working with BoldtSmith Packaging vs a packaging manufacturer creating the designs are outlined below:
- The packaging manufacture owns the specifications which does not allow your procurement team to have designs competitively bid. When BoldtSmith Packaging creates the specifications, our customer’s own them and can have them bid through multiple companies to ensure the best pricing.
- Packaging manufacturers create designs with the materials they sell. If they do not sell a material, it will not be part of the design which gives you the disadvantage of missing the best possible packaging solution.
- The goal of a packaging manufacture is to sell material. Since BoldtSmith Packaging does not manufacture or sell packaging, our goal is to create the best possible packaging solution.
- There are multiple packaging tiers for Amazon such as FFP, SIOC and PFP along with multiple testing procedures based on product fragility, size and weight. At BoldtSmith Packaging we take the guess work and lost time on what to do.
