Kite Packaging South East - Case Study

A Kent based existing customer to Kite wanted to reduce their packaging spend without reducing their 22+ corrugated SKU’s. As each product was bespoke we had a tough challenge on our hands. After reviewing how, and the type of products, they pack we were able to offer the following;

  • Reduced the dimensions of the cartons thus minimising the use of void fill required
  • This reduction in the carton size also offered them a volumetric saving in Courier Costs
  • Changed many of the cartons from a standard double wall over to our Enviro grade (minimise paper - increase strength)
  • We also minimised the use of paper void by providing them with pulp fitments for their cartons.

This task had an annual cost saving of approximately £20,000 to the customer, increased the number of cartons per pallet thus reducing the number of pallets held on the shelf. Further savings were achieved via the Packaging Regulations obligations due to the above reductions.
