”The savings opportunities from cube optimization alone are enough to evaluate your packaging program, in one of our large apparel customers - a redesign of packaging focused on supply chain optimization produced a $30M freight savings”
Packaging is an often overlooked lever in the supply chain. Brands and agents that own inbound freight costs will benefit from this knowledge-sharing forum.
Managing the packaging in your supply chain can have a large positive impact on your bottom line. You will discover how to accurately specify packaging, the benefits of pack optimization, and bulk fill strategies. We’ll share our experience with challenges sourcing packages from China and Southeast Asia such as vendor compliance and consistency between converters and how that effects your brand image. We will demonstrate specific strategies to help you control your packaging and lower your freight and operational costs. Sustainability executives will learn the role of packaging in the supply chain and some basic metrics to consider for overall sustainability reporting.

In today’s work environment, we are continuously challenged to do more with less. We look to find areas of improvement that can lead to operational savings across our organisations. If you feel like you are running out of places to trim back, we suggest taking a new hard look at your packaging program.
18.20 - The added costs to a business if you do not have packaging control
Do you have visibility into the real costs of your packaging? If OEMs in Asia are sourcing packaging on your behalf, the answer is no. Lack of control also likely means your packaging is not optimised to get the greatest value throughout your entire supply chain.
