Trusted Partners Keep Your Product Packaging Safe Overseas

Companies and individuals alike have fears and concerns buying products and shipping from China — and rightfully so. The concept of free or low-cost packaging shipping can be enticing, but this generally means cutting corners to deliver the cheapest options available. The effect can be dramatic — not to mention expensive. Low shipping costs cause your precious cargo to be delivered in the cheapest possible way, resulting in lost items, damaged goods and hundreds or even thousands of dollars wasted.

Smart companies know the value of a trusted partner who not only cares about their products, but also truly understands how to produce and ship them properly. ABC Packaging Direct found a solution by teaming up with OIA Global, an established third party provider that offers creative and efficient logistics solutions.Packaging Shipping

What makes OIA Global stand out from the crowd is its approach to the customer service aspect of logistics and its deep understanding of what retail clients are truly looking for in an international service provider. Bill Yankow, Director of Eastern USA Operations at OIA Global, explains the company has a strong focus on taking the unknown variable out of the shipping process for each and every customer.

We’ve had our fair share of horror stories dealing with international shipment, and one of our biggest fears concerned the location of our goods once they were ordered. Unlike our past experiences, the biggest change we’ve seen in partnering with OIA is the full visibility of where our product lies at every step of the shipping process.

We know the importance of quality protective packaging that keep products safe and secure, and we expect the very best for our pouches and our customers’ goods. We fully believe that our customers’ products deserve not only the very best packaging, but also superior care and handling at every possible moment.

Outstanding businesses should not have to settle on crushed boxes, missing items and haphazardly consolidated products. The key to avoiding these worst-case scenarios is finding someone who understands the product, views its customers as partners and keeps a careful watch on the entire supply chain.

OIA pays close attention to detail, keeping products in locked containers that are untouched until they reach their final destination. This is a company that controls its warehouses from the origin ports to the destination points and finds containers that are closest to their clients’ arrival destination as possible. Together, we are committed to advocating for your company, removing the fear of the unknown and maintaining the quality of your product and product packaging every step of the way.

What LEGO’s Sustainable Packaging Teaches Us About Overseas Innovation

Since 1949, children across the globe have fawned over tiny, plastic, interlocking bricks.

LEGOs are a not only a classic toy but a staple in many households. Many kids beg their parents to take them to the majestic LEGOLAND, an amusement park where all their wishes and dreams could come true.

Why Nestlé, Unilever & PepsiCo are Banning Oxo-degradable Plastic Packaging

Originally marketed as an eco-friendly packaging material, new evidence regarding the potentially negative impact of oxo-degradable plastics has led a number of companies and governments to restrict their use.

More than 150 companies and global organizations, including Nestlé, Unilever and PepsiCo, have recently endorsed a total ban on the material in light of its potentially negative environmental impact.

Oxo-degradable plastic packaging, which includes select plastic pouch bags, is often marketed as a solution to plastic pollution because it claims to degrade into harmless residues within a period ranging from a few months to several years. However, oxo-degradable plastics do not degrade into harmless residues, but instead, fragment into tiny shards of plastic that actually contribute to plastic pollution.

Often, consumers think that because a material is biodegradable, it can be composted or even littered on the ground, because, it is thought, the material will break down into nothing over time. This actually ends up leading to an increase in pollution, since consumers don’t end up recycling or repurposing the material, and misconceptions about how the plastic will degrade leads them to end up putting it back into landfills.

What is important to note in this case is that although oxo-degradable plastics are biodegradable, being biodegradable does not necessarily mean that a material is eco-friendly. Although these plastics do break down over time, the tiny pieces they break down into are still plastics that contribute to pollution — they do not degrade into nothing or into another usable substance.

For companies looking to make the switch to sustainable packaging, it is important to consider that sustainable packaging does not necessarily mean biodegradable packaging, and vice versa.

Why New FDA Guidelines Could Bring Big Changes to Pet Food Packaging

Today’s consumers are demanding transparency and accountability from all types of products, and pet food is no exception.

Greater scrutiny over pet food ingredients, and an increasing demand for responsibility, sustainability and complete transparency from pet food manufacturers is driving change within the industry. As the consumer demand for “clean” pet food labeling evolves as a major topic within the world of pet packaging, FDA guidelines are shifting.
