School is about to restart. Basic school supplies orders are already ramping up. Being prepared for shipping your retail items takes planning and anticipating how to best package and get items to where they need to go. First, let’s talk about your product packaging.

Of course, you need to do your market research to see if the psychology of design and color changed. If it has, your retail packaging may need to change to better excite the minds of your buyers.

Design changes can affect merchandising packaging, point of purchase displays, shipping crate packaging, as well as the packaging in which you ship your products. There is a lot to packaging also when it comes to basic logistics.

Loss Prevention for Basic School Supplies

You are proud of your company name. It’s natural to want to print your company’s logo and/or brand on outer packaging in which you place your basic school supplies. But, is it the safest practice for loss prevention?

Let’s face it. Most companies do not want to talk about products being stolen. Truck drivers can lose an entire shipment to those disguised as truck drivers who are nothing more than thieves with their own trucks. There are precautions you can take to better assure your product arriving safely and properly to their end destination. Before you ship your basic school supplies anywhere, think about putting products into what equates to a brown corrugated box without any real identifying brand marks. That way would-be thieves have no real way of knowing what’s in those packages.

It is necessary to consider a lot when it comes to a product’s packaging including more than just what packaging materials to use. There is product safety for shipping, loss prevention safety and merchandising strategies at the retail store. You can just imagine the many aspects of packaging. To better package your products, consider consulting with packaging experts in commercial supply chain companies.
