Packaging Supplier Delays: Impact and Solutions

In the fast paced logistics world, efficient communication with suppliers is paramount to your success.

It is no surprise that slow response times from your packaging supplier lead to delays.


Delayed delivery of your essential packaging materials can halt your production line and impact your delivery schedules. In this guide, we explore the impacts of supplier delays and the solutions that Springpack offer.

Did you know: on average you can expect a response from the Springpack Sales Team in less than 15 minutes?




Backlogs in dispatch


Efficient production schedules are essential to keeping your packaging operation running as smoothly as possible. Running out of packaging supplies can lead to backlogs of products waiting to be shipped. Shipping backlogs lead to ineffective use of resources.



A Missed Deadline


Slow response times from your packaging supplier lead to deadlines in the production of packaging products being missed or delayed. For example, if you use die cut or printed mailing boxes, a slow response time on your order could lead to a delay in production. This can delay deadlines or order fulfilment.



Increased Shipping Costs


A delay in order acknowledgement can lead to a delay in your packaging materials arriving. This delay may push you to use more expensive expedited shipping methods to uphold your service standard.



Specification Compromises


Significant delays can lead to switching the packaging product you use to one that does not meet your requirements. This often leads to a temporary switch to an underspecced product to learn more about the issues that can arise with an underspecced product, why not read our blog?
