The price of everything is rising at the minute, and this is no different in the packaging industry. Inflation is almost at 10% and prices are increasing at the fastest rate for more than 40 years. Costs are significantly rising in paper, energy, even pallet production. This is bound to have a detrimental effect on all forms of packaging. Add to this the fact that consumer behaviour has dramatically changed to online shopping in the past few years, with the equivalent of 5 years growth in 2020 alone, and the country is using far more packaging than ever before.
So what can businesses do to reduce their costs in the current climate?
Using Right Size packaging allows you to create a more sustainable packaging process, while reducing your packaging costs. Right Size packaging also helps to eliminate your use of void fillers, which are often one of the reasons costs are so high, especially following the introduction of the plastic packaging tax.
Find the Right Size solution
Ribble’s Right Size solution combines industry leading Fanfold material and state of the art technology to create the perfect size box for all your products.
Making your packaging flexible, cost-effective and can be converted back into Fanfold packaging. Fanfold is a long piece of corrugated board scored at regular intervals and folded neatly and compactly. Fanfold can then be used to pack single or multiple products by feeding it into fully automated packaging machines to create an exact size box, therefore eliminating waste.
Ribble Packaging are the European market leader for the manufacture and supply of corrugated Fanfold, in addition to pioneering Right Size packaging solutions in the UK.
Some of the benefits of changing to a Right-Size packaging solution include:
- Save around 30% on packaging costs by using Right Size and only buying fanfold
- Eliminate obsolete packaging purchases by making only the boxes you require
- Eliminate plastic packaging by using the Right Size box
- Reduce transport costs by fitting more onto vehicles
Don’t just take their word for it…
One of their customers, Dextra Group stated that by using Right Size solutions, they could produce specifically designed packaging on a ‘just in time’ method to suit their factory.
