Products damaged in transit can be a considerable cost for retailers and manufacturer, as well as a major inconvenience for both the company and the consumer. Bulky and difficult to handle products such as Kitchen Worktopsand Mattresses are particularly susceptible to damage throughout transit as the delivery teams struggle to pick up and carry the product effectively. If the product does not have the correct type of protective packaging, the product can be easily bumped or scrapped during transportation, or the delivery teams could put their hands through the packaging. This would break the hygiene seal thus leaving the product unsuitable for sale or susceptible to product damage.
Expensive products such a kitchen worktops and mattresses can see huge losses if the product has to be returned and is no longer suitable for sale. Such a massive cost can however be prevented with the correct protective packaging.
GETTING THE RIGHT TYPE OF PROTECTIVE PACKAGING IS VITAL TO PREVENT COSTLY DAMAGES
Many companies use disposable protective packaging such as polythene and cardboard. These are costly and damaging to the environment and do not provide sufficient amount of protection, which therefore allows damages to the products.
In an attempt to prevent damages companies have increased the amount of disposable protective packaging they use. For example, double bagging a mattress or increasing the gage of polythene wrapping used. This is not only far more costly, but also creates higher amounts of waste and still does not provide complete product protection.
