Eliminate Transit Damage.

Engineered product protection ensuring your items do not suffer costly damage

Transit damage can mean different things to different companies.

If for example, you ship high volumes of low value or even perishable goods, there is always likely to be some level of goods arriving at their destination which cannot be sold (although there is obviously a threshold where this becomes an issue).

Alternatively, you may manufacture highly calibrated, specialist items worth hundreds or even thousands of pounds. You may produce consumer electronics or luxury goods of high retail value. Your products may even be critical to a larger project or manufacturing process which cannot be stopped at any cost.

In this scenario, any transit damage can be catastrophic.

Product protection
Product protection can be essential if you are shipping or storing high value, fragile, highly calibrated or rare items that simply cannot be damaged.

Regardless of the value of the products you manufacture or distribute, by working with GWP Group you can benefit from strategies to improve product protection and reduce transit damage that are both relevant, and tailored, to your business.

This in turn can reduce the cost associated with returns, replacements and written off stock, can enhance your brand perception and even aid repeat sales through end user satisfaction.

Please see below to discover how, regardless of your current packaging and product protection requirements, you can minimise the impact of transit damage on your business.

Product Protection Strategies

A number of ways in which you can prevent breakages

Please see below for the methods that you could employ alongside GWP Group to completely eradicate costly damage to your items in transit.

Performance packaging caluclations

Calculated Packaging Performance

Precisely engineered protection from shock & impact

Your business can now take advantage of a little known piece of software when specifying your product protection.

Utilising drop test data and complex algorithms, the software can precisely calculate the grade and volume of foam material needed to offer the optimum level of protection.

Eliminate transit damage

Transit Damage Reduction

Reduce return costs & improve client satisfaction

The easiest way to lose customers is to supply damaged products.

Whether retail, tools for niche industries or even mission critical components, the costs of returning / replacing goods – plus customer dissatisfaction – can have a negative impact on profitability and your future sales as well.

Packaging material analysis

Material & Construction Analysis

Optimum material and construction

Sometimes strength needs to be added to packaging for successful product protection.

The opposite is also true, in that packaging may be over specified. The cost becomes far higher than needed. Analysing material & construction can reduce costs without compromising the performance of your packaging.
