Packaging often treads a delicate balance between the inherent necessity to protect against the cost and waste that it generates. There is no denying the fact that packaging also has a significant impact on supply chain costs. In the highly specialized aerospace industry, a generic solution will not fit the bill.
Equipment is most often delicate and ultra-sensitive. For optimal product safety, transit security and smooth flow of the supply chain, packaging systems need to be mindful of costs, logistics, ergonomic requirements and environmental impact. Customized packaging solutions with a holistic view can ensure cost efficiency and reduce waste while maximizing packaging performance.
Some benefits of customized aerospace packaging solutions include:
Reduce Costs and Improve The Supply Chain Process
The aerospace industry leaves no margin of error in the manufacture and assembly of its high-value components. Damage and delays due to improper packaging can result in product returns, slowed down processes and rapidly snowballing expenses.
The most common problems include damage due to movement or temperature fluctuation, breakage of parts with glass, and rust formation due to exposure. Generic packaging cannot provide the same level of safety and security during transportation and handling. This is because aerospace packages are typically large, oddly shaped, sensitive and heavy. Service centres located all over the world can also add challenges to an effective supply chain.
Aerospace companies need not waste time and focus on packaging when it can be handled by experts in the industry. Choose a provider who can deliver customized solutions on demand, meet deadlines, save money and be efficient in timely delivery. An effective and efficient supply chain will ensure that the company meets its financial goals.
Optimized Packaging Performance
Custom solutions are meant to meet material and operational needs, down to the very last detail. This is especially relevant to the aerospace industry which must comply with strict guidelines and regulations. Standard off-the-shelf packaging cannot be used for these specialized products.
Trained and experienced professionals assess the size, shape, fragility, sensitivity, weight and method of transportation of every individual component before designing and testing a specialized solution. Factors like maintaining calibration during transportation, shock, vibration, insulation, handling, exposure to the environment and loading are also taken into consideration. Different materials eg wood, foam, corrugated sheets etc. will be chosen to meet the specification of the item to be transported.
From concept to execution, optimized packaging solutions will always be a perfect fit!
Reduce Administrative And Operational Costs
Custom packaging solution providers offer complete solutions. These include designing, manufacturing, testing, packaging and customer support. Manufacturers of aerospace products need not maintain an inventory of packaging materials and solutions thereby keeping their operations streamlined and hassle-free. Administrative expenses can be further reduced with tracking tools from the packaging solution provider.
