This virtual conference brings together trusted insights and forecasts from GlobalData’s automotive practice to give a definitive vision of how the aftermarket sector can effectively respond to industry shifts.
Your global market is growing, and along with that; the need for more immediate, single shipments driven by consumer demands for fast, frustration-free shipping in both directions; and corporate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) reporting driving more interest in goals that impact climate change, such as net-zero emissions.
Market fundamentals often require a re-think on package design and materials. As the market changes around you, now might be a good time to bring Sealed Air in to help you consider how a change in packaging can help you keep things moving.
In the current market, 30% of a typical IC light vehicle is electronic components. And as hybrids, ZEV and BEV continue gaining consumer acceptance that number is increasing rapidly. Where packaging is concerned, the convergence of technology, electronics, and the automotive aftermarket create new challenges to ensure parts make it through transit intact. Your market fundamentals have begun to shift - so now would be a great time to plan and prepare for your future by ensuring your packaging can help keep things moving.
Learn how to navigate the five most pressing automotive parts packaging challenges the industry is facing today.
Large, unwieldy items not only need the right cushioning, most also need some type of retention to protect against damage to surfaces or edges.
Irregular shapes are best protected by packaging that provides retention and can fully surround and cradle the entire part.
Items that contain glass or other breakable materials need special attention to ensure the package can withstand all types of mishandling including orientation, drops, bumps, stacking, or sliding.
Painted or coated parts have surfaces that must stay pristine during transit. Wrap or cushioning material choice is critical for these types of products.
Items that are unevenly weighted are prone to mishandling, falls, and drops especially if not shipped on a pallet, so proper cushioning is critical to this category.
For hardware items that come with larger parts or when shipping soft or durable goods directly to a consumer, our automated bagging and printing systems help keep operations efficient and shipping costs down.
