If you have been working in the eCommerce industry for ant significant amount of time, then you know that benefits of having some cheap, quality, and easily supplied products that can be used for every day packaging and shipping of your products. Even if you are not an exclusively online store and still do in-person sales at some storefront, it is true that packing and shipping supplies are crucial to the success of any business. That is why I wanted to take some time today to talk about some of the best packing and shipping supplies that you should be using if you are not already.
Some people reading this article may be well aware of some of these items but have not yet pulled the trigger on making all the necessary changes to implement them into tier manufacturing process and all that. Well, if that sounds like you, then I highly suggest that you take the necessary steps to get everything setup as soon as possible. Seriously, you are going to want to take my advice in this article to heart, because I definitely know what I am talking about. With all that being said, let’s talk about some of the best packing and shipping supplies that you should be using in your eCommerce or in-person business.
The first type of packing and shipping supplies that I want to talk about is something called poly bags. If you are unfamiliar with what poly bags are or have never even heard of them, then you honestly should be embarrassed to call yourself a business owner. That’s right – they are that important to every business. These plastic bags are great because they aren super cheap to produce or to purchase, especially if you are ordering a lot at a time and can buy them in bulk.
With all that being said, it is totally up to you if you want to use these types of bags or not. Personally, they are one of my favorite forms of shipping supplies because they can be sealed very easily and efficiently and can keep the elements, weather, and air out of whatever product you are selling. Afterall, there is a reason that these things are so popular with all types of eCommerce stores, manufacturers, and even in-store owners. I can highly recommend these things to any business owner or even to any low-level manager or something like that.
The next type of packing and shipping supplies that I want to talk about is actually a form of packing supplies. That’s right, I am sure a lot of you guys know where this is going. I am talking about the timeless invention of bubble wrap. We all know and love bubble wrap because it is so much fun to pop. It is actually said that bubble wrap was first invented by people who needed to relieve stress in a healthy way – that is actually not true at all.
However, bubble wrap is amazing because it can keep all of your products safe and sound, and it is surprisingly very cheap to purchase and relatively easy to make. The only downside to using bubble wrap is that it is fairly harmful for the environment because a lot of plastic is thrown into landfills nowadays.
