The recent pandemic has accelerated dramatic shifts in shopping behaviour for B2B and B2C shoppers - pushing manufacturers to ship individual products directly to customers and end users. All the signs are there: These new shopping behaviours are here to stay. And yet, many manufacturers are still packing their products as if nothing has changed.
If your fulfilment operation is shipping individual products using packaging designs intended for pallets, you're likely overlooking hidden costs in freight, labour, damage, and more. Worse, you risk being left behind as online shopping behaviours – and high expectations – continue to accelerate.
