Car parts packaging

If you are an OEM, tier one, or tier two supplier, you’ll know how vital your automotive packaging is to your business’s ongoing success.

Automotive packaging protects car parts, components, and vehicles during transportation, storage, and handling. It is typically returnable, with suppliers and manufacturers using totes and containers over multiple trips. Automotive packaging also includes corrugated boxes for aftermarket parts, ESD-safe packs for electronics, and, increasingly, specialist solutions for lithium-ion batteries.

At GWP, we have vast experience supplying commercially successful, cost-effective car parts packaging to businesses of all sizes within automotive supply chains. We have expertise in returnable, single-trip, and specialist options, plus an in-house design department well versed in the nuances of automotive packaging design.

More info on automotive packaging

A modern vehicle comprises thousands of individual components. Each must be transported from suppliers to OEM manufacturers, arriving safely, without damage, and at the precise time to prevent costly assembly line delays.

Everything from the smallest switch to a car bonnet must have adequate automotive packaging that protects it in transit. The same applies to agricultural vehicles, too.

As a result, as much as 40 per cent of all industrial and transit packaging used globally houses automotive parts, components, and assemblies.

Changing requirements for vehicle packaging

The automotive supply chain is well-established and highly efficient, utilising a range of returnable vehicle packaging. Popular solutions include Euro containers, Correx® totes, a range of dunnage options, stillages, pallet packs and more.

However, with increasing vehicle technology, specialist requirements for protecting these components are growing. As a result, ESD-safe automotive packaging solutions that protect these items from electrostatic discharge are increasingly vital.

Besides this, with the switch to electric vehicles (EVs) accelerating, there are increased requirements for the safe transportation of lithium batteries (and hydrogen fuel cells).

The ongoing popularity of motorsports also calls for a range of specialist packaging, with foam inserts, tool control, and protective cases vital in protecting high-value tools and equipment.

Source automotive packaging

Is your automotive packaging cost-effective? Is it easy to use? Does it last over numerous trips and uses? Do you get it when you need it? Does it protect your components or products from breakages and surface damage during handling and transit?

If the answer to any of these questions is no, or even “I don’t know”, GWP Group can make a significant, tangible difference to your operations.

GWP Group has over 30 years of experience manufacturing and supplying successful automotive packaging. We are an established, trusted supplier to well-known global brands and smaller companies alike.

For over a decade, we have worked with companies such as Honda to supply their corrugated packaging. We are the largest independent converter of Correx® material in the UK. We are the market leader (over 85% market share) in anti-static packaging. And we are one of the few companies in the UK that can calculate the exact level of cushioning performance provided by our foam inserts.
