Local packaging company Test Valley Packaging release expert eGuide to help retailers hit climate change KPIs

Sponsored by

The coronavirus pandemic fuelled an online shopping boom providing a surge in demand for parcel deliveries.
With overall parcel volumes continuing to rise, many retailers are citing that speed of packing is their main constraint at peak times – and a direct threat to productivity.

As lockdown restrictions are lifted, local packaging provider Test Valley Packaging has launched an essential online tool for Southwest companies that are now planning how their warehouse operations are going to cope with the forthcoming festive seasonal hike in orders and continued rapid growth in online shopping.

If packaging is complicated to assemble or requires multiple processes, then this will likely result in slower packing times. This can be damaging for a growing business, especially at peak times during the year. The question is: can your packing process be simplified? Test Valley Packaging are renowned for their ability to come up with innovative ways to solve customers problems

Test Valley Packaging, the supplier of the Hexcel Dispenser Bench that complements its paper alternative to plastic bubble wrap, has created an eBook revealing how the latest packaging innovations can enhance operator efficiency and sustainability. It also features some top tips that could dramatically improve productivity and the bottom line.

Companies are becoming increasingly aware of the need for sustainability to be reflected in the packaging they use. Sustainable packaging shows they are taking corporate social responsibility seriously, plus it enhances brand, encourages returning customers, minimises carbon footprint, lowers shipping costs and reduces waste.

There are viable, cost-effective alternatives to non-sustainable packaging. From space-saving solutions to help streamline operations in packing areas already under pressure, to sourcing smarter and faster ways to pack goods, not to mention eco-friendly packaging that will excite customers and leave them asking for more.

For example, there are many options, including 100% biodegradable and recyclable solutions, for speeding up a taping process, including no tape at all! In its eBook Test Valley Packaging outlines the different methods available that could save time in the box sealing process. 

Test Valley Packaging’s Manager, Ruth Lowe, explained: “We are all aware of the spike in online orders, these are putting pressure on operational departments, when this happens space can become the number one issue. Environments that become messy will rapidly become unproductive because of the lack of room to move, can create potential health hazards, breakages and the reduction of staff morale.

Test Valley are proud to have been providing packaging to the Southwest for over 40 years. We have a wealth of experience in the packaging Industry and a team of experts on hand to provide forward thinking, innovative solutions to any business. Working with our customers, using our expertise, and recognising a need within our market, has allowed us to grow the product range required within our industry.
