Disruptions to supply chains around the globe have led to increased anxiety and costs. Control what you can by utilizing best practices of packaging your product to save money.

In this webinar we will explore the different packaging decisions that can significantly impact the costs associated with shipping your products internationally or may limit (or prevent!) entry to specific international markets. We will share how to calculate and communicate these hidden costs to business leadership to both reduce and/or minimize the shock of their freight cost. More importantly by “unboxing the hidden costs of packaging,” we’ll explore strategies and best practices that will allow your company to affordably and efficiently navigate the logistical pitfalls that can make or break an international sale.
