Reducing operating costs and overheads. We are sure this is one of your main business goals.
When budgets are scrutinized and savings required, many companies are tempted to shop around for lower prices.
Unfortunately, this is often at the expense of quality, and any short-term savings can be negated by increased transit damage and supply issues.
Getting the right balance between protecting your products and getting the most out of your packaging spend both on a local and pan-European level is a though challenge.
One of the key factors in reducing transport costs is to make the most of your pallet space. Get this right and you’ll reduce your logistics costs, whether you’re shipping a single pallet or a truck-load.
Fitting more packs per pallet is a very good strategy to reduce storage and transport costs.
Here’s a simple check-list to help you ship more products per pallet:
- Check your existing cases, bearing in mind the physical dimensions, weight and pack quantity.
- Pinch a few millimetres wherever possible to make best use of the pallet deck area.
- Check the available height within the delivery truck or shipping container. Are you paying for unused space?
- Savings from double pallet loads, or even an extra layer per pallet will more than offset the cost of a stronger case which can be stacked higher.
- Don’t forget that sometimes the pack contents can help take the weight.
- Check that height restrictions allow for higher or double pallet loads.
