Common Package Challenges

Smithers Pira is positioned to understand where packaging and logistics meet and overlap. Our approach is to take a whole supply chain view, so that correcting one issue does not introduce a problem elsewhere in the packaging product and logistics system.

Smithers Pira works with companies throughout the demand chain and consistently the same challenges arise as key drivers behind packaging and logistics projects. We aim to support our clients by providing services that:

  • Identify cost reduction opportunities and deliver cost avoidance
  • Address the needs of e-commerce by improving customer service and on-time delivery
  • Achieve legal and regulatory compliance
  • Delivers progress against the requirement of sustainability
  • Delivers against quality requirements in complex and global supply chains
  • Reduce damage and improves the appearance of products at the point of sale
