Custom Packaging

By evaluating performance, compatibility, and market trends our team is able to work directly with you to offer the best solution for your exact needs. 

 

Example #1

A customer shipping temperature-sensitive goods to Singapore needed a way to cut costs and eliminate unnecessary freight. We developed new, smaller polyurethane coolers and packaging kits that reduced the number of gel packs needed to cool the materials being shipped. Because the packaging dimensions and weight were reduced, the customer experienced bottom-line savings on shipping costs.

Example #2

Customers of a multinational beverage manufacturer were experiencing leaking packages when receiving their product via air shipments. Additionally, warehouse staff complained about the complexity and time it took to assemble the packages to begin with. We created a new packaging kit, eliminating four SKUs and simplifying the assembly. We also created a custom-molded, 100% recyclable tray for their inner carton.

 

Process Improvements

Berlin Dangerous Goods consultants work with you to streamline your operations. Our packaging solutions consider every lever, including:

  • Ease of use
  • Package assembly and handling
  • Best use of dimensional weight
  • Testing
  • Cost efficiency
  • Hand hold positions
  • Thermal validation requirements

 

Example #3

We increased a biological product manufacturer's net income by designing a central-location return program for packaging, allowing materials to be refurbished and sent back out to the customer's satellite locations. In addition to directly impacting the bottom line, this solution was also environmentally friendly.

 

 

Recent Innovations

Environmentally Friendly Packaging

In 2012, Berlin Dangerous Goods added seven new all-corrugate metal packaging options to its product line. These shippers eliminate the need to use EPS foam and make the entire shipping package fully recyclable. 

 

Our molded pulp shippers for bottles provide the same benefits to the end-user. These options allow components and cartons to be shipped unassembled, reducing shipping costs as well as reducing the needed storage space.

 

Tamper-Evident Chemical Closure

In 2011, Berlin Dangerous Goods created a polypropylene cap that can be used interchangeably on glass and plastic bottles.The caps feature a PTFE liner and tamper-evident band. The closure is compatible with 38-430 and 38-439 neck finishes.
