SALT LAKE CITY, July 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reported today by Packsize International LLC in the company's first annual On Demand Packaging™ survey, a packaging solution's ability to reduce shipping costs was cited by respondents as the top-ranking aspect of their packaging operations that needs improvement. Recently conducted by Peerless Research Group, the study's findings are based on information collected from 521 top logistics and materials handling managers, who on average ship more than 2,000 packages (primarily corrugated boxes) daily from their locations. The full survey report is available for download at no cost. 


Many managers also ranked a packaging system's durability, reliability, and performance as characteristics considered most important when evaluating box-making solutions. Also of note, 92 percent of those surveyed indicated that they ship items of varying sizes, with nearly two-thirds of these companies requiring between six to ten different-sized boxes.

"The study confirms what we are finding to be an industry-wide need for custom-created boxing that eliminates box inventory, inefficient use of warehouse space, and a desire to minimize wasted space and dunnage material within the shipped product box," said Packsize Marketing Vice President Brandon Brooks. "These managers are identifying strategies to streamline processes and trim packaging costs. Packsize has a true opportunity to showcase On Demand Packaging™ as the latest evolution in lean manufacturing."

Packsize presents a unique proposition to these managers, in that the On Demand Packaging™ provider considers cost, durability, and performance to be hallmarks of its packaging solution.

"While providing the ability to create the exact right-sized box at precisely the right time with a system that requires no capital investment, we also take the customer's packaging process uptime very seriously, and as such, have all of the processes in place to back a very high level of assurance for reliability," said Brooks.
