Specific consumer products look exactly the same when they roll off the manufacturing line. To satisfy retailer requirements, however, these identical products are wrapped, sealed, tied and packed in dozens, even hundreds, of different ways for presentation on the retail shelf. Consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies often outsource final packaging to outside contract packagers, adding a costly and time-consuming step between manufacturing and the distribution center. CPG companies can streamline their supply chains by integrating final packaging into existing distribution operations and entrusting the function to the logistics professionals who manage warehousing and transportation. Doing so can reduce combined distribution, packaging and transportation costs by 30%, and can cut at least 7 days in order-to-delivery cycle time.
