Sustainable Packaging

Sustainable packaging refers to the sourcing, development, and use of packaging solutions that have minimal environmental impact and footprint. Simply put, sustainable packaging is earth-friendly and doesn't contribute to the further depletion of natural resources. According to surveys, product packaging is responsible for about 30% of all household waste and the rapid rise of e-commerce has only increased the problem of packaging waste going into landfills. The good news is consumers are becoming more aware of this issue and going green with your packaging can benefit your brand. Reducing packaging and using recycled or recyclable materials, is an eco-friendly approach that becomes an asset for your company’s reputation. Fortunately there are more green packaging options than ever before and working with an experienced fulfillment professional can help you find solutions and streamline the process.
There's No Free Shipping

We know this is true. But the idea of not paying an additional charge on top of the product cost is always appealing. Amazon has changed the way most of us shop online, with the cost of delivery hidden in total pricing. Smaller companies have a hard choice to make: offer free shipping and absorb the cost (not good for long term survival) or price their goods higher to include it. Surveys have shown shipping charges are the most likely reason for shoppers to abandon online carts, because it feels like they’re paying “extra”. It’s that feeling of being “nickel and dimed” they dislike, not really the total cost. Smaller retailers and marketers need to explore more efficient and cost effective ways to pack and ship their products, allowing them to include shipping costs in their overall price and offer “free shipping” while remaining competitive.
Drones Can't Deliver Hot Tubs

Using drones to deliver packages may become commonplace at some point, but we’re not there yet. Apart from the physical engineering challenges, regulatory issues involving drones continuously buzzing low over neighborhoods, as well as safety and security concerns, all need to be solved. Drones are also highly unlikely to be delivery vehicles suitable for what the transportation industry calls “bulky items”. Think of products like exercise equipment, household furniture and riding lawnmowers. While the big delivery companies like Amazon and UPS are all experimenting with alternative ideas, it’s not clear there is a corresponding appetite for delivery drones from customers. For the foreseeable future, nothing beats the personal touch of a team of experienced delivery professionals, especially when they can offer White Glove service to set up and install items in the home.
Finding Commercial Warehouse Space

Demand for warehouse and storage space has skyrocketed during the past few years and building costs are at an all time high. With the increase in e-commerce and online technology, consumers are looking to purchase and receive their goods in record time. Light industrial warehouse space is at a premium with lease costs increasing dramatically year over year. Smaller or new manufacturers, marketers and retailers are all faced with the challenging task of trying to find land or a building to lease, and that’s only the beginning. There are many other considerations including the upfront costs to fit-out space, finding an experienced labor force to run the operation and of course long-term lease obligations. The smart play for many is to outsource that capability to an experienced distribution professional with existing commercial space ready and available for use.
