Improved Efficiencies in Warehouse and Shipping Helped this Global Manufacturer Save Money and Lower Costs

Improved-Efficiencies
Companies that require multiple container sizes in small or large quantities often struggle to find a cost-effective way of maintaining their inventory to meet demand. Most packaging companies prefer to ship truckload orders or larger to keep cost low, however carrying the excess inventory adds cost with storage and handling.

Midway Container worked with a large global manufacturing company to provide them with the exact type of packaging and in the desired quantities they wanted by implementing a Just-In-Time inventory system utilizing Midway Container’s warehousing. This allowed the customer to forgo developing additional warehouse storage at their location. It’s a winning combination that has brought both efficiency and profitability to the project.
