Looking for a Solution?
We are a solutions provider.
The days of driving around are over. The Internet competition and $3.50 a gallon cured that. We offer different ways to communicate via video.
The best way to compete is utilizing the most economical and efficient solutions for your packaging and shipping needs. Reducing cost of labor and using better machines yields greater productivity. If you don't, your competitor will, and use it to their advantage.
For information start with our motto, contents page, idea page, or search page. Our web site is split into two areas, the educational area that contains brochures, parts lists, service info, and the shopping cart.
We have also implemented "Total Solutions" packages. These solutions offer additional items to enhance and expand the product you are interested in.
How do you know if you need to find a better solution to a problem in your packaging and shipping department?
Generally you look for a solution after you discover you have a problem. Running a company without finding better ways and methods to the processes, means not being able to realize the maximum profits possible.
If your company ships 50 packages a day and you find a way to save $0.50 each, your company will realize an additional profit of $5,625.00 per year (225 working days a year)! This equates to just three minutes per order if your employees cost only $10 per hour. Think of all the steps involved in order processing.
Pro Pack Solutions, Inc. offers a number of solutions involving increasing the productivity and security of your packaging and shipping departments. Our company motto:
We also Cut It, Fill it, Weigh It, and Mark It Too.
Shipping departments are either a "profit center" or a "loss center". Which is yours? Take a "tour" on us by clicking on the ideas link.
The majority the shipping departments I have been in over the years I found a mixture of benches and tables thrown together with papers, equipment, and supplies. Being organized with a good shipping table, being structured with product flow, with everything in it's proper place, within easy access and reach, greatly increases productivity.
Using a good shipping bench with shelves for boxes, computers, tape dispensers, etc, creates an efficient, ergonomic, solution that address your needs and integrates into your work flow. We offer solutions with the Dehnco line of workbenches and shipping tables.
To increase product flow, I highly recommend looking into conveyors to move boxes from the order pulling areas to shipping to the dock doors. Each time an employee picks up and moves an order time is wasted. Companies that specialize in conveyors have engineers to help you design the proper solution.
I find a lot of time wasted by packers having to apply labels. Manual multiple roll label dispensers keep all the labels in one place within easy access. For larger jobs our electric label dispensers speed up label application by using the "pick and stick" solution over the "find the roll, pick up the roll, peel and stick". We offer videos on several of our models for a better understanding.
Hand held tape guns are necessary and found in almost all shipping departments. The number one problem is keeping up with the guns. Operators and other employees will walk off and leave the guns causing a lot of wasted time. Operators will apply multiple strips to seal cartons due to the poor performance of the seal. Roll change outs are also more frequent. On top of that, low cost tape guns have exposed blades that operators can be cut by. If you are going to use tape guns we highly recommend using the higher quality safety guns. I visited a shipping department recently and found the manager had installed large magnets on the side of the shipping bench to hold the gun when not in use. I thought that was a great idea and even incorporated it in our shipping department.
A better solution would be to consider using gummed reinforced tape to seal your cartons. The tape is stronger and cheaper when you consider the true cost of hand held tape guns. We have a few video links on our tape page.

If a package arrives to your customer and looks ugly, damaged, or excessively taped to death, what kind of image is that for your company? Shortages cost time and money. Sealing boxes with gummed tape is still the best solution. For more info click here.
