New innovations to reduce costs:
A West Midlands based bathroom supplier came to Kite with an aim to reduce their packaging spend and improve their packing operation. At the time they were using InstaPak (a product which we also supply to some clients) to package their bathroom products, ready for distribution to customers.
The account manager assigned to the client quickly established that although InstaPak is ideal for high-value, breakable items it often causes problems in that it is not uniform which isn’t ideal for POS, and can be very costly when voids to be filled are large and require several pillows of InstaPak to be used.
The Kite Air Shock was introduced to the customer – a product available online and to Regional Distribution Centre customers who require bespoke versions. Both a sink pack and toilet pan pack were drop tested and transit tested, and used a mere two Air Shock packs per product to offer full protection. The new Air Shock packs saved 62p per pack for the sinks, and a huge £6.89 for the toilet pans – offering a significant annual saving for the client. As well as this packing time was significantly reduced as the Air Shock packs could be inflated in seconds, compared to the InstaPak method which required packers to firstly expand the foam and then pack the cushions around the products.
