Collaborating on a Trial Run for a Retail Giant

Challenge: Port Jersey Logistics provided fulfillment services for a Korea-based skincare product manufacturer, who soon landed a trial-run with one of the country's largest retailers. The unknown brand ran the risk of going unnoticed by consumers, so the skincare company promised the retailer "Buy-One, Get-One-Free" dual packs. A hurdle: the products were manufactured and packaged in South Korea and it was impossible for newly-packaged 2-for-1's to reach the retailer in time for their test run.

Solution: Under a tight deadline, PJL unwrapped existing packages, re-wrapped previously individually-wrapped bottles into two-packs, and placed "Buy 1 Get 1 Free!" stickers on each. Two-packs were then banded with two others, creating six-packs as mandated by the retailer. This was an aberration from normal procedure, as the customer's products typically shipped in cases of 48.

Results: The product enjoyed a successful trial and can now be found at a larger swath of the major retailer's stores nationwide.

About the Solution Provider: Port Jersey Logistics offers 59 years of experience with state-of-the-art systems and facilities to meet a broad range of logistics requirements. It is equipped to handle a wide-ranging spectrum of products including grocery, specialty foods, alcoholic beverages, health and personal care products, electronics, textiles, ingredients and raw materials.
