Affordable Packaging with our Total Cost Approach

High quality, affordable packaging is a must-have for any efficient business. Kimmo uses a total cost approach in order to help you optimise your supply chain and reduce the total cost of your operations, with smarter packaging solutions. Here’s how we do it:

Transportation Cost

Transporting by air is costly. Our lightweight packaging material has the advantage of saving you kilograms and keeping transport costs down. Our affordable tailored packaging solutions also help you to fit more products into each shipment, container or truck, saving you money on shipping costs.

Damages and Claims

Don’t sacrifice the protection of your products for cheaper packaging - damaged goods are more expensive in the long run. With our multi-material approach, we can find a way to give you excellent levels of protection at a more affordable packaging price.

Warehousing Cost

All our products can be nested and/or flat-packed. This reduces inbound transportation costs, and also saves inbound floor space in your warehouse. Our stackable packaging will save you floor space in your warehouse’s outbound area as well.

Operational Cost

Most of our packaging solutions can be manually assembled on your production floor, without the need for a hammer and nails. This means your team will have an efficient, low-risk and low-noise assembly environment. With this improved working environment and reduced handling time, you can focus on your core processes.

Environmental Cost

Your chosen packaging material will have an impact on your waste management and waste disposal costs. Kimmo specialises in packaging solutions that reduce the overall environmental impact in production, transport and end-of-life treatment.

Total Cost Index

When choosing your packaging, the direct cost of the material alone shouldn’t be the only thing that guides your decision. There are many other factors to consider. Saving on costs in one area could lead to additional costs in others – that’s why it’s important to take a total cost approach when choosing packaging.

It can be difficult for companies to do this, as responsibilities are often shared between many different departments or divisions, making it hard to see the bigger picture.

Responsibility for the total cost can typically be divided between the following divisions within a company:

Total Cost Component Main Division
Transport Logistics
Warehousing Logistics or Operations
Handling Operations
Product protection Sales or Operations
Environment Head Office

At Kimmo, we believe that the needs of each company are unique, and require a custom packaging solution in order to optimise the total cost involved.

We help clients to see the bigger picture, and ensure that they get optimal value for money every step of the way.
