Kite Packaging Thames Valley was approached by a large bathroom importer who received their products on full pallets in full containers. The products were then packed into single items and shipped through a parcel network, therefore requiring protection in transit.
The business’ original packaging method was resulting in 10% damages, which was detrimental to profits and the supply chain. This involved protecting products using corrugated and polystyrene pieces, and using further corrugated as void-fill – taking up 15 pallet spaces to store the material and making the packing operation inefficient.
After discussions Kite proposed a new solution using Air Shock. This comprised of two inflated packs completely surrounding the product (a sink) and could be used to pack their entire range. Drop tests and transit tests were carried out with 1,000 units and zero damages resulted. Air Shock has also helped reduce the board grade on the outer cartons used as the products are now well protected, as well as this the reduction of labour costs has been significant with far more products packed in the same time as before. In addition, because the Air Shock is stored uninflated it now only takes up 1 pallet space in the warehouse facility and has also comes with a cost reduction of 18% per pack.
