How to Determine if It’s Time for You to Outsource Your Packaging Requirements to a Contract Packer

Companies / SME Nov 20, 2021 - 08:16 PM GMT

By: Submissions


Many businesses enter into an agreement with a contract packing firm for two reasons: it's either they are not equipped with the right equipment and means for packing and distributing their products, or they have the means but don't have the workforce or skill to enhance and increase their production line. Whether you are thinking of scaling up and expanding in terms of your production output or don't have the necessary equipment, staffing, or resources, you will undoubtedly have to spend a lot if you were to purchase your machinery and equipment, hire staff, train them, and make sure your entire packing process is efficient and effective. But this is precisely where a contract packing service can be of tremendous help. If you aren’t sure about hiring the services of a contract packing partner, here’s how to determine if it’s time for you to outsource your packaging requirements to a contract packer.

The main benefits of outsourcing to a contract packer

When you outsource your requirements and rely on a partner in contract packing, such as, you can take advantage of a service that’s both cost-effective and convenient.  It can provide you with the right solution for your packaging needs. For example, you can use their facilities and equipment, and you can also profit from their industry advice and experience. Additionally, an agreement with a contract packing firm allows you to save on costs due to the economies of scale.

Is it time to outsource? How to know

It may be the ideal time to outsource your requirements in packaging if you answer yes to the following:

  • If you don’t have the proper in-house machinery or equipment or lack the skill and know-how to tackle your packing requirements yourself
  • If it is not economically feasible for you to invest in packing facilities and equipment at this time
  • If it's better for your budget to rely on a contract packing firm, than do it yourself
  • If your packaging requirements are highly-specialised; in other words, you need special or unique equipment, skilled labour, or knowledge of industry requirements
  • If you are expanding and would like to take advantage of saving money through the bulk shifting and packaging, and distribution for your products
  • If you have a seasonal or short-term requirement for repacking
  • If you have a full warehouse and it can no longer accommodate your products
  • If you need to downsize in regards to your facility or manpower

What can you expect from the service?

You may already know that contract packing services can offer bottle filling, shrink and flow wrapping, vacuum wrapping, and the like. But you can have your products packed in different materials and even several layers of materials. With proper packaging, you can protect your products from dust and moisture and other hazards, and you can protect them from impact.

Some other packing examples include resealable packets or packages, protective sealing, squeeze bottles (inverted), carton packaging, packing canned items and goods, bubble wrap packing, and Styrofoam packaging, amongst others. You can also opt for specialised materials and containers depending on the kind of product you have, such as glass or HDPE bottles, hermetically-sealed ampoules, composite, plastic, or metal drums, and more.
