Protective Packaging for the Automotive Industry
Whether you are making your own parts or are fixing parts and shipping them around the country, there are some shipping products every automotive company must have on hand. In the automotive industry, you will be shipping parts of all shapes, sizes, and weights as well as fragility so it is important know how to properly protect your products. Let’s take a moment to discuss what kind of packaging you may need to ship your automotive parts.
Choosing Your Packaging Supplies
Unlike other industries, the automotive industry’s parts vary in sizes greatly. From a spark plug to an engine, your packaging needs will vary greatly depending on what you customers need. For each product you ship, it is important to have its own level of protective packaging and to know what works best for each item in your shop. If you are shipping smaller products, it might be better to use a cushioned bag instead of a larger box not only to protect your product but to save you money as well. It is important to use the correct type of box for your product to arrive at its destination in once piece.
Working with Different Shapes
When working in the automotive industry, you are bound to transport items that at all different shapes and sizes. From windshields to bumpers, your shop could be transporting many different types of products every day. So how do you ship these products safely? To keep these products safe, you will need the right packaging materials to either mold or fit securely around them. Foam-in-place and custom foam inserts can both be used to mold around the products and conform to their shape. If you are transporting an electrical part like a battery or starter, you will need an anti-static option for your parts like bubble wrap or certain types of foam. If your products come in their own boxes and are heavy, you may want to use a foam-in-place cushioning system to keep the items stabilized and to protect against vibrations.
