Paying too much for your packaging?

How does your pallet or crate stack up?

A Case Study on the benefits of engaging UBEECO – we offer personalised and custom solutions to our customers in Melbourne and right across Australia.

Those new to this would be wondering where to start, who to engage and what packaging option to select for shipping their product. Even if your company is already using pallets and crates, there’s a real opportunity to take stock of your pallet-usage, as you could be paying too much for your packaging – pallets, crates, cases. Do you fall into this scenario?

What sets UBEECO apart from other packaging suppliers in Melbourne and beyond, is that we offer our customers more than pallets and crates; we provide them with a complete support service and ensure they receive the best option for their product, and the best value for their investment.

Engaging with UBEECO – a complete packaging solutions experience

The support we offer includes:

  • A dedicated Packaging Consultant to give you the best advice and service
  • A professional Customer Service team
  • Confirmation of your order with delivery timeline
  • High quality, Australian manufactured products
  • A production team committed to meeting the highest standards, as well as your deadlines

Let’s unpack this a little more…

While a pallet’s size is largely determined by the type of goods being shipped, it is important to note: the more timber used and the greater the pallet size, the higher the overall costs. We have experienced some companies using the wrong pallet or case design, and they’ve wasted a significant amount of money in the process.

At UBEECO, we offer to meet and discuss our customers’ requirements, rather than just quote like-for-like on what they are using at the moment. We’ll ensure that you’re not paying for timber that you don’t need, and keep your environmental footprint to a minimum.  If you haven’t reviewed your packaging for a while, you could be losing out on potentially huge savings.

Heavy Duty Pallets for a Melbourne-based customer 

A business came to UBEECO via our website recently, and asked us to quote on the same pallet they had been using in Melbourne for many years. They took up our invitation to meet on site to take a look at their site and the type of products they were transporting.  Within 7 minutes we determined that they didn’t need such a heavy-duty pallet, and that they could make significant savings by changing the timber being used.

It also became apparent that they had a lot of last minute requests from their ow customers, and often had to place last minute orders which weren’t able to be met on time.

We were pleased to welcome this new customer on board and save them over $600,000 per annum.

We now hold stock for them so that they never have to worry about being let down with a last minute request.  Their own customers are thrilled at the improved delivery times, and so are they.

By asking questions about your business & how you like to operate, we tailor an offering to provide you with the best support.

Our customers notice the savings & the overall operational benefits when engaging with the UBEECO team.

Next steps

It’s easy to dismiss timber pallets or boxes as being all the same, after all, they all look pretty much the same thing.

But get it wrong and it can cost your business a fortune, costs that have to be passed on to your customers.

Get let down too often and it can cost you customers, time and credibility.

There’s no better time to review your current processes, and UBEECO offers a free evaluation and quotation service to ensure that you are taking advantage of the best possible structure.
