Contract Packaging to Grow Your Business

by Michael Kotendzhi | Warehousing

Co-packing, also known as contract packaging, is an arrangement where a business allows another firm to handle the packaging of its products. This agreement allows the main company to focus on production and allows the co-packing business to focus on packaging, branding, and logistics. 

One major benefit of outsourcing packaging is cost efficiency. A business would not have to purchase their own packaging unit and machinery if they were to outsource. Secondly, co-packers offer state of the art technology that enables the packing process to be smooth and efficient. It would be difficult for a company to maintain and upkeep the necessary packaging equipment. Additionally, co-packers have the ability to handle any irregular or seasonal spikes in demand that might be overwhelming for a company. Lastly, co-packing companies specialize in packaging needs and can handle a variety of various problems that may arise. 

‚ÄčThe services of co-packing can be utilized across an array of different industries. Here at 18 Wheels Logistics we can package alcohol, beverages, pharmaceuticals, food products, and much more.
