The Fundamentals of Best Practice Commercial Packaging

May 27th 2015 at 5:56 AM

If you’re in the market for commercial packaging, you need to start with the basics:

•    Finding a reliable supplier of containers

•    A good range of interior liners and fills

•    Value for money, clear costs at all times

•    Sourcing a full spectrum of packaging for your needs from a single supplier

•    Sourcing specialized containers for shipping

•    Good quality packaging to ensure minimal issues with transport and delivery

•    A responsive supplier able to help with shipping requirements and supply needs

Most commercial shipping, believe it or not, uses the ever-reliable cardboard box as a basic container. It’s a good option. Cardboard is cheap, and high quality cardboard is extremely tough and reliable.

A basic stock of packaging includes:

•    Mailers of all kinds, including boxes,folding cartons,mailing tubes and cones

•    Protective fillers like bubble wrap, loose fill, shrink wrap and similar products

•    Poly bags

•    Strapping and tapes

•    Shipping room supplies like markers, labels, cable ties, pallets, cardboard shelf bins, etc.

Finding the right supplier is pretty easy, when you use these criteria for your supply needs. The best practice is to source from one supplier, not multiple suppliers. A single supplier is easier to coordinate, and bulk purchasing is invariably cheaper.
There’s a company called First Packaging of Chicago, a major national supplier, who is a good example of a supplier that ticks all the boxes for packaging supplies. This company is also a good example of a one stop shop supplier. They really do have everything, and you can order a full range of products with one order. It’s better to use a single supplier, both for cost and efficiency reasons. Multiple suppliers can be far more trouble than they’re worth, and managing multiple orders is more expensive, particularly over time.
Another major plus for your consideration - They have a very simple ordering system which allows their very diverse range of business clients to manage supply needs as required, seamlessly and easily.
If you’re looking for packaging supplies, don’t do a thing until you check out their website and see how much better a single supplier can be for your business. You can visit their website here at You can contact them directly online or by phone.
