Packaging Automation Keeps Companies In The Clear During Labor Shortages

Whether Millennials are in fact “lazy,” as far too many news pundits like to assume, is beyond the point. The real problem is that warehouses and distribution face a shortage of able-bodied workers. What’s more, those who fill up the applicant pool are either picky about where they work or ten not to apply for positions requiring manual labor. From the perspective of facility owners who need to keep conveyor belts filled with outbound items headed for delivery, not having the human hands to handle them is a problem—right? Not quite. As Packsize is quick to point out, automated machines creating the right-sized box out of environmentally-friendly packaging material is an all-around solution for those experiencing staffing and workflow problems. With the busy holiday season now on the horizon, there’s no time like the present to shift attention to automation rather than scurrying to find temporary workers who’ll only bridge the gap until Christmas is over.

Custom Boxes Make the Furniture Trip a Safe One From Showroom To Living Room

When it comes to home furniture, there’s a huge gap between the showroom and your living room. For every sectional, corner chair and end table that’s on display under enticing bright lights, there are two dozen items just like them sitting in the warehouse waiting to be ordered. Once that order is placed, the real activity gets under way and additional operations spring into action. This includes the efforts of custom box-making companies who aid in the process. Since oversized furniture is so unwieldy, every order is susceptible to damage. Because of this, it is essential that every box shipped is packed in a way that keeps the furniture damage-free during delivery.
