The most flawlessly made part is no good to anyone if it isn’t received in good condition, or isn’t received at all. Getting a part through production is no small achievement, but it is just the first step in getting to market. Packaging that part and transporting it to its intended destination are equally critical undertakings that can often prove even more complex.
Elmira Stamping & Manufacturing has access to the resources and expertise to make sure your products are delivered on time and in perfect working condition.
At ES&M, custom packaging and logistics are part of our comprehensive service offering. These services are designed to ensure that our metal components and products are securely and efficiently packaged for shipping, and can be tracked all the way to their destination.
Here are some custom packaging, shipping, and fulfillment services that we can provide:
We collaborate with customers to design packaging solutions to meet the unique requirements of their metal parts or products. This may involve creating economical custom packaging that is compact, lightweight, and environmentally sound while providing adequate protection for the parts inside.
The best package for your part will depend on size and weight, susceptibility to breakage and corrosion, and other factors. Our experts will take it all into account and recommend the best packaging materials for the job.
We can design and build custom crating to securely hold and protect metal components during shipping.
Custom foam inserts or cushioning can be precision cut to protect even the most complex and fragile metal parts during transit.
Serialization and Traceability
Providing serialization and traceability to help customers track the movement and status of individual components or products within their supply chain.
Labeling and Barcoding
We can prepare and print adhesive-backed labels, barcodes, or QR codes to apply to packaging materials for inventory management, tracking, and identification of components.
Packages can be custom marked with your logo and branding, special handling instructions, or other custom graphics for marketing, informational, or legal purposes.
