Technical Knowledge & Know-How
Through the Hi-Tech Packaging Search & Select™ service, we can source generic and custom printed courier bags from our global manufacturing network. Over many years we have learnt a lot about strength, stretch and sustainability for freight packaging. Using the Hi-Tech Packaging Knowledge Base, we develop new ecommerce packaging products for our customers.
For example, Hi-Tech Packaging have developed a recyclable flow-wrap film for packaging products, ready for freight. This new film contains 30% recycled content, can be recycled again, and performs to the same standard as virgin film.
During early product trials, the Strategic Sourcing Team worked closely with our customer’s production team. Specialist equipment engineers were also involved when testing the film in a live production setting. After refinements to the formulation to adjust the sealing and slip properties, the product was fully launched.
Quality & Assurance
Custom printed courier bags create an important first impression for consumers. Freight packaging, must be fit for purpose to avoid damage to products and to our customer’s brand.
The Hi-Tech Packaging In-house laboratory tests all freight packaging products, ensuring they comply to standards. As part of the Comply & Conform™ service, the team will check print quality, tape release closures, seal flap and slip. The quality control systems at Hi-Tech Packaging, ensure ecommerce packaging performs well.
Hi-Tech Packaging is also Forestry Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified. This means we are able to ensure the integrity of paper products across the entire supply-chain. The Comply & Conform™ team are highly experienced in managing local and global standards.
