Reusing flexible protective packaging, like a Simpad from Simpak, can help companies save money on their shipping costs when they have the ability to use the packaging more than once.
Consider this: an automotive parts company uses the Simpad protective packaging to ship out an engine part, like a alternator. The mechanic is then supposed to ship the core of the old alternator back to the parts company. This would be an example of using the packaging more than once; therefore, the Simpads are a good fit for multiple uses. Rather than using other protective packaging, the mechanic has just cut the cost of use in half by using the original packaging twice..
In most other situations, once you ship protective packaging, it’s no longer good enough to reuse.. But in some situations, when a customer needs to return their product, it just makes sense to return it in the same box with the same packaging, saving them time and money.
This means the auto parts company has just cut their internal packaging cost in half by reusing the protective packaging a second time. Instead of buying a new pad, they can reuse it and save money. And if they get it and send it a third, fourth, or even fifth time, they’ve cut their protective packaging costs by 33%, 25%, and even 20%.
Because the Simpad is flexible, made from recycled foam products, and enclosed in a strong vacuum barrier bag, it can hold up to the rigors of the shipping process and ensure the product arrives to the customer safely. The Simpad is not limited to just one product type or size, rather it can be flattened and reused for various product sizes.
As an added bonus, there are many unique applications the Simpads can be used for at its end of life. The end customer can use it for a backrest, packaging to send out something through the mail, or as packaging in a move to protect fragile items.
