    New packaging builds revenue and sustainability for a large healthcare manufacturer

    case study spot optiboxCustomer Challenge:

    Our healthcare customer, a manufacturer of therapeutic products, issued new parameters to its healthcare product suppliers to eliminate PVC clamshell packaging, due to the packaging’s lack of environmental compliance. The new packaging needed to be shelf-ready and not pegged in the retail environment, despite the fact that space allocated by retailers typically only displayed products in PVC clamshells on a pegboard. Also, as a result of the clamshells not being able to stand upright, excess products were being flat-stacked below the display, which severely limited space in the display area.

    Our Solution:

    • Retail Packaging
    • Air and Ocean Transportation (LCL/FCL)
    • Customs Clearance
    • Packaging Optimization

    PDFbutton

    Customer Benefit:

    Our customer’s new OIA-developed packaging was well received by retailers. One retailer increased the shelf space display by 17 inches, enabling our customer to add an additional 3 SKUs to the store set, resulting in increased revenue. Additionally, improved brand messaging and graphics helped their products to stand out among competing brands.

    case study spot optimization boxesCustomer Challenge:

    Our healthcare customer, a manufacturer of endoscopic imaging systems, and devices and infection control products, was experiencing consistent damage and higher than normal logistics costs on their international materials shipments as well as their outbound finished goods. Their current packaging was ineffectively utilizing container space and was wasting logistics spend and increasing their carbon footprint.

    Our Solution:

    • Retail Packaging
    • Customs Clearance
    • Air and Ocean Transportation (LCL/FCL)
    • Packaging Optimization
    • Consulting
    • Management Reporting

    PDFbutton

    Customer Benefit:

    Our customer realized an inbound logistics savings of 20% as well as an outbound finished goods savings of over 30% on ground and air shipments. They reduced warehousing costs with a weekly replenishment system based on minimum/maximum levels set up by OIA, which reduced their distribution space requirements. The reduction in the number of inbound shipments achieved through packaging optimization lowered their carbon footprint. Our customer was so pleased with the results that they awarded OIA with an additional retail packaging project focused on the centerpiece of their product line.
