Is Your Packaging E-commerce Ready?

Jolly Sunshine Limited | Updated: Mar 13, 2018

The old “pathway” of getting product from processors/manufacturers included a distribution channel that would deliver to the grocery/drug store or other retail outlet. The traditional secondary or tertiary package was the corrugated case or tray pack. Primary containers such as bottles were typically placed into partitioned shippers. Other product types, such as over-the-counter pharmaceuticals put bottles into folding cartons and then shippers. The goal was to transport 12- or 24-count cases, stacked on pallets and placed on trucks. Game supply and game card sleeve and trading card sleeve and soft card holder.

The combination of corrugated shippers, partitions and even folding cartons all acted in concert to withstand over road vibration and protect the product all the way to its intended destination. Game supply and game card sleeve and trading card sleeve and soft card holder.

Now, the continued evolution of ecommerce is dramatically impacting how products are delivered. This means that packagers need to rethink their packaging choices. For example, instead of one or two dozen units being shipped in a case, consumers typically order single units. Depending on the product and the providers, each item may be put in a padded bag or in a small case with protective packaging. Game supply and game card sleeve and trading card sleeve and soft card holder.

Equally as important is the consideration that these items are no longer being shipped vertically.  In the case of a liquid product, like a shampoo, for example, this can become problematic. Game supply and game card sleeve and trading card sleeve and soft card holder.

Brand owners need to consider every aspect of their package for suitability for ecommerce distribution. If you are shipping a liquid, are you using an induction seal or will a foam liner do a better job of minimizing back-off and preventing leakers? Game supply and game card sleeve and trading card sleeve and soft card holder.

In the case of products using a folding carton to hold a primary container—such as a cosmetic or over-the counter (OTC) drug. Is the secondary folding carton necessary now that you are shipping in a padded mailer? Can you improve economics by removing that component? Game supply and game card sleeve and trading card sleeve and soft card holder.

Consumers who purchase via e-commerce are also likely to want to express their purchasing satisfaction (or dissatisfaction) through online reviews or social media.  It’s critical that your decisions are thought through so that you are not on the receiving end of negative feedback that can have significant impact on future purchases. Game supply and game card sleeve and trading card sleeve and soft card holder.

Additionally, many carriers and e-retailers are have guidelines for shipping liquid products and are imposing fines for non-compliance. Closely evaluating how your packaging stands up to this type of distribution, as well as the condition your package/product is in when the consumer receives it, will play a big role in your success. Game supply and game card sleeve and trading card sleeve and soft card holder.
