Today’s footwear companies require a logistics and packaging partner that provides true market segment knowledge and experience. This is why many of the largest global footwear brands, distributors, marketers, and factories turn to OIA Global for our unique and innovative solutions.

Spot-footwear1We understand that footwear brands control and enhance their identity with retail packaging or “inner boxes.” Our extensive experience at procuring and controlling the source of the corrugate helps increase control of your brand integrity. We are experts at Color Management and stubborn with our suppliers. Our graphic designers complement your team, and become an extension of your art department. Our structural engineers use their expertise to design the right structure and form, and determine the right carton suite for your footwear, all with an eye toward maximizing the number of pairs you can pack into the shipping carton and ocean container. It’s the new standard of fully-integrated optimization in the footwear segment, one that we call “thinking inside the box.”

But our expertise in footwear doesn’t end there. Our materials sourcing team literally got its foot in the door in footwear. We have developed unique programs to source components and raw materials that are used by your factories, giving you control and visibility of the quality and cost of the goods that comprise your footwear.
