An increasing number of people are realizing that various contract packaging services can dramatically help to improve their business operations.
A relatively new industry, contract packaging services more than doubled in growth in less than six years, from 2008. According to the Contract Packaging Association that, amongst other things, provides resources to members, instead of employing temporary staff, the industry is now mostly using fulltime workers. This of course impacts on businesses that can benefit from outsourcing packaging services on contract.
Why Businesses Use Contract Packaging Services
Because professional contract packagers specialize in what they do, they know what they are doing and their costs are competitive. This is especially true when compared to the costs many small to medium businesses have when they handle their own packaging, especially those that have not been established for any length of time.
But how do you know that packaging services are going to work for your business?
Essentially when you choose to use a contract packaging business to do this part of your work for you, you are opting to work with a partner. Because they have the experience, they will be able to help you solve many of the common problems that young businesses have, including personnel training, issues that arise from having limited production and other physical facilities, as well as concerns that relate to the need to invest in the right equipment for packaging. So instead of worrying about these issues, you can continue to grow your business, concentrating on producing the best products and marketing them to increase sales.
While a contract packager will clearly package your goods for you, the best will be able to handle other areas of business for you too, including assembly, fulfillment, distribution and even logistics services.
Which Businesses Use Contract Packaging Services
Pretty well every business that manufactures and sells goods will potentially benefit from outsourcing packaging services. For instance all these related items can be packaged using contract packaging services, including:
- Consumer products, from cleaning items to cosmetics that can be manually or automatically packed.
- Food and beverage items, all of which have their own unique requirements, and might also need to be warehoused.
- Industrial products, especially those that will benefit from turnkey solutions.
- Pet foods including cat and dog kibbles packaged in vacuum packs.
- Food and non-food powders that can be particularly difficult to package. These include powders that are granular, free flowing, or dusty, and those that tend to be sticky.
