For commercial packaging applications, package integrity is essential. Our forward-thinking structural designers optimize packaging to maximize performance and protection, while reducing material and waste.
Package design is also important for supply chain efficiencies. When designing packages for commercial applications, we look for opportunities to:
- Consolidate SKUs
- Improve cube utilization through size and orientation analysis
- Maximize trailer and warehouse space
- Accommodate automated packing equipment requirements when applicable
- Incorporate custom features to protect the product such as ventilation
To ensure package integrity, packages are tested for compression, vibration, and material handling in Great Northern’s certified ISTA® 6 test laboratory as part of the design process.
