Turn your packaging into a competitive advantage
Please see below for further details of the unique services and support that GWP can provide for – and tailor to – your business.
Simplify your packaging supply chain
The need to source varying packaging from different suppliers can add unnecessary strain to your supply chain. It can lead to increased admin costs and inventory that is difficult to manage. By sourcing all of your packaging from a single source you can not only reduce costs, but improve efficiency and minimise admin too.
Free, no obligation review of your packaging
Do you know if your packaging is using the optimum material? Have a high volume of packaging wastage? Lots of returns? Know your packaging isn’t performing, but don’t know where to start fixing it? Maybe you just wish there was someone who could handle this for you? This where a full packaging audit conducted by GWP Group could help.
Full service support conducted remotely
Regardless of the challenge you are facing with your packaging, the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak makes all of this more difficult – particularly with face to face meetings being problematic or even impossible. The solution? A remote packaging consultancy with GWP Group – conducted completely via video calls and sending of any physical samples by couriers
Measures to aid customers, staff and packaging industry
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 Coronavirus, we are all going through a period of immense change and adapting to the unprecedented circumstances. GWP understand the important role that packaging plays in critical supply chains, as well enabling our customers and other businesses to continue their operations during these challenging times.
Highest quality material for your packaging
Corrboard UK – a new venture involving GWP – has allowed a number of independent sheet plants to take ownership of their raw material supply chain through investment in Corrboard. Whilst this has allowed significant improvements to quality, there are a wide range of benefits for your business too. Find out more about these here.
UK wide network of packaging products and services
Offering the widest range of packaging products across the UK, the aim of Corrboard Alliance is to create a packaging revolution. Breaking the cartel of the large integrated sheet plants – and the indifferent levels of service this can mean for you business – you can now benefit from the highest product quality and availability, range of options, and customer support.
A Different Approach to Packaging
Services, products and ideas tailored just for your business
You may be relatively happy with your current packaging supply and processes. It may seem cost effective, reliable, is delivered on time and generally protects your products during transit.
So why change suppliers?
There are numerous reasons that your business can benefit from working with GWP Group, all of which can be seen here. But, there are a number of key differences between the way that GWP Group is set up and practically any other packaging supplier operating in the UK.
These differences present a unique opportunity for your business.
So why GWP Group?
From taking an engineering approach to evaluation of your packaging (rather than simple price tendering), you can achieve significant gains in efficiency whilst also reducing your overall spend.
By working alongside a packaging manufacturer (not re-seller) that also controls the quality of the raw materials used, guarantees standards which are not available elsewhere.
Being able to procure such disparate packaging types from a single source can streamline your supply chain and admin.

What is a packaging audit?
A packaging audit is basically a service where GWP will conduct a holistic review of your packaging, potentially identifying inefficiencies and other areas that can be improved. This can lead to improved efficiency, lower costs, a streamlined inventory, increased order fulfilment and even happier staff. What’s more, a packaging review is completely free too!
Can’t any packaging company provide these services?
A lot of packaging companies focus on selling stock products / boxes. And whilst many do offer a design service, GWP’s whole approach is to firstly solve any problems that you may be experiencing with your packaging, but to then make it work as hard as possible for your business. This service led approach is almost unique amongst packaging companies.
Can you really improve my packaging?
When was the last time you reviewed your packaging? Or looked at how much it is costing? Or even considered how quickly it is to assemble and pack? GWP will analyse all of this (and more) to look for any inefficiencies or wasted spend, allowing you to see the benefits in your operations. And, if we genuinely feel we cannot improve on what you are doing, we will be completely honest and tell you straight.
I’m worried about switching suppliers – should I be?
Switching suppliers can be a fraught experience, and packaging is no exception. However, GWP have experience of handling significant transfers of business seamlessly, before then refining this to further improve your packaging.
Who are the Corrboard Alliance?
The Corrboard Alliance is a group of 9 corrugated packaging manufacturers who are part owners of the Corrboard mill. Whilst we share a raw material source, the other benefit is the support that the individual businesses can offer each other, including through product knowledge, specialist manufacturing techniques and even disaster support / mitigation.
