Delivered IPC Cost Saving Solution – A prospective corrugated customer, who was buying direct from a manufacturer, asked IPC to take a look at their needs. While they believed they had the lowest possible price, they did not factor in the amount they had to buy at one time. The result was numerous pallet slots occupied by product costing them money vs. using that space for products that make them money (their products). They had $80,000.00 of cash tied up in inventory dollars on top of space. When we calculated those costs, their “real” cost per box was quite a bit higher. IPC provided a price that was not only competitive but also a solution that included next day delivery on quantities matching their demands. The end result was true bottom line savings.
Delivered IPC Cost Saving Solution – IPC approached a bottling operation to evaluate their hand protection program. After a detailed audit of their application, we determined they were using 15 different gloves and four different protective sleeves. Our safety team came back with various glove and sleeve alternatives meeting their application. To test performance, sample gloves and sleeves were supplied of equal or greater protection.
After testing, the customer concluded that 4 gloves and 1 sleeve tested the best. Final Result – IPC took the customer from 15 gloves to four and four different sleeves to one. All four gloves selected were more expensive than any glove previously used. The increase in protection and longer wear resulted in an Annual Cost Savings to the customer of over $38,000.00.
Delivered IPC Cost Saving Solutions – No more damage and missing parts
We received a call from a customer who was having major shipping damage and missing parts. After a Profitability Analysis, we found they were shipping large boxes directly to end-users using only carton sealing tape. In addition, the operators were using up to 6 strips of tape to help aid the package for transit. This did not work. The operators were using the only means they had to reduce damage. The solution for this project was simple, water activated tape. Water activated tape makes package very secure when shipping individual boxes to end users. It creates a pilfer-proof seal as well as a very secure bond. The customer loved this solution and missing and damaged parts are now down to zero.
