Can you really help reduce my packaging costs?

GWP Group have a wide range of strategies to reduce the ongoing cost of your packaging. This involves taking a holistic look at all of your products, processes and packaging, identifying areas that can be improved. It can be common to see cost gains in packing times, material usage, minimised transit damage and a number of other areas.

Can packing times be affecting my costs?

Slow packing times can be one of the hidden costs of your packaging. It means less orders fulfilled, higher wages paid to operatives, and can even affect repeat business if your fulfilment times are too slow. GWP has a range of strategies to help improve your packing times and overall efficiency.

I would like a packaging audit – how is this conducted?

Typically, a full packaging audit would entail a visit to your site (or various meetings over Zoom or other video platform), to build up a full picture of your packaging operations. A team of expert designers, engineers and advisers will then be able to create a tailored programme of improvements for your business.

Can you design completely custom packaging?

GWP Group boast a large, experienced, award winning design team. Based across 2 well equipped design studios, a designer allocated to your business will be able to create packaging that exceeds your expectations in terms of performance, material usage, aesthetics and costs.

Can you help improve my packaging’s environmental performance?

GWP take pride in being a truly green packaging company. This means we will be able to help your business minimise the environmental impact that your packaging has, including strategies for material reduction, moving from single trip to multi use and switching to fully recyclable options as appropriate.
