How Do I Tackle The Rising Cost Of Packaging?

We are constantly seeing a rise in inflation, affecting the cost of raw materials we import into the UK, such as paper and polythene.

Therefore we must find other ways of reducing our packaging spend, which includes looking at high-performance alternative products, as well as methods that have guaranteed cost in use advantages.

Tackling The Rising Cost of Packaging

‎The performance of packaging remains an important factor as it is critical that our products are protected during transit. However, with the rising costs, the status quo is no longer an option.

Innovative companies around the globe are bringing new products and methods to the packaging world to reduce costs, improve productivity and cut packaging wastage.


As a supplier, what can you do to maintain your profit margins, as costs of raw materials such as packaging increase, whilst still protecting your goods from being damaged in transit?

After all, however much of a cost packaging may be, it is a necessary ingredient to ensuring that your goods reach your consumer in perfect condition!

Less is More

In our 18 years of providing Strength and Quality packaging products, we have observed a number of customers who have tried to cut corners by ordering large quantities of low-grade packaging materials to reduce costs.

Whilst this may seem sensible in the short term, it sometimes proves to be a false economy as often this requires using more packaging than is necessary.

However, less is more. The higher grade your packaging, the less you require, and the greater the protection for your products. Let’s face it, the higher the percentage of products that arrive in one piece, the larger your profit margin will be.
