The coronavirus pandemic has impacted our world in many ways, including significantly changing the way consumers shop. Retailers and manufacturers alike have been making major adjustments to meet the heightened needs of the time.
Sanitizing products and other high-demand staples are flying off the shelf, leaving manufacturers scrambling to close the gap between demand and supply.
Meet the surge in product demand with a Contract Packaging Partner
Contract Packaging Can Help You Help Others
Many are turning to contract packaging to help keep up with the surge in demand, whether for critical safety items, groceries, or other needed supplies.
Three great reasons to consider Contract Packaging:
- Contract packagers typically have more flexibility than large corporations to schedule urgently needed production.
- Contract packaging allows you to outsource and fulfill orders efficiently without taking on extra staff or adding costly equipment.
- A contract packaging partner can act as an extension of your company, providing special services, capabilities, and expertise to get your product into the hands of consumers safely and expediently.
In a standard operating climate, more than 60% of businesses surveyed said contract packaging increased flexibility and cut costs. In light of today’s ever-changing world, flexibility and operating efficiency are more important than ever. A contract packager is poised in the perfect position to help meet this need.
From warehousing your product to pack out and delivery, relying on the expertise and manpower of a contract packaging company will help you optimize your operation to improve speed-to-market.
Contract packaging tasks can be performed in-house, outsourced to third-party vendors, or left to the retailer. Determining the best resource is dependent on which services are needed.
