And, package redesigns and the money they can save on the transportation end aren’t just limited to the consumer packaged goods industry. In August, clothing manufacturer Gap Inc. announced in its latest sustainability report that the company’s use of more efficient containers along with redesigned packaging eliminated 57,000 tons of cardboard and 63 million yards of plastic bands per year from its U.S. operations.
As a member of the consumer packaged goods industry, you are a special type of consumer, fully aware of the factors involved in determining shelf price for your shoppers. By taking advantage of that insider knowledge and applying it to a streamlined logistics effort, you’ll create financial and operational benefits, and your consumer will thank you for it. d
