One of the services we provide at BoldtSmith Packaging is a packaging assessment. This service consists of completing onsite visits to your manufacturing facilities, distribution centers, etc. We want to see the packaging designs, materials, how the product is packed, handled, stored and speak with the team on the floor to learn about their pain points related to packaging.
Since we do not manufacture or sell packaging, our assessment is un-biased and will provide you a “true” look into what opportunity exists within your packaging system. Our team of experts have experience creating optimized packaging designs for products ranging from microwaves to pancake mix to motorcycles.
So, what should a customer expect after we complete an assessment on their current packaging? A wealth of knowledge uncovering hidden cost saving opportunities! We will provide a detailed assessment that outlines all packaging opportunities by material and process. This includes ALL packaging materials and processes ranging from tape used to seal boxes to pallets, packaging automation, storage methods, etc. A few examples outlined below by packaging material and process from recently completed packaging assessments.
Our goal after we complete the assessment is to then complete the identified projects. We rank the identified projects on key variables such as ROI potential, risk level, project duration, company goals, etc. After completing the assessment, it is not uncommon for us to have identified upwards for 30+ packaging projects. Depending on annual quantities, packaging spend, etc. These projects can often lead to millions of identified and implemented cost savings!
