Reliable Packaging Companies in South Africa for Bulk Material and Equipment Supply

The first step towards successful transporting and delivery of products to wholesalers, markets, retailers and the end-user is to find reliable packaging companies. A few guidelines are provided below to help you make an informed decision regarding the best supplier for your particular needs.

Location of the Company

Although there are certainly many reliable packaging companies around the world, it will be best to select one that is located in South Africa. When having to import packaging materials, you will have to pay import duties and should a problem occur with the delivery, it can mean days, weeks or even months before you get the required packaging.

By that time you may no longer need the materials. In addition, communication with an overseas company can at times be limited, especially when it comes to custom printing on boxes, containers or bags. You will want the company to fully understand the printing requirements and will not want to end up with spelling errors on the packaging material.

History of the Supplier

One way of finding a reliable packaging company in South Africa is to review the history of the company. Look for a supplier that has been around for a couple of years. It will show stability, which is important, especially if you plan on building a longstanding relationship with the supplier. With a solid track record of production and supply, the supplier will most probably also show the expertise to meet custom production requests.

Variety of Products

Although you may only require the bulk supply of a particular packaging product for now, you may expand your business or farm operations in future. It will imply that a wider range of materials may be needed. When purchasing from one of the reliable packaging companies that can supply a wide variety of materials in bulk you can purchase from one supplier. This will mean better pricing, improved standing with the supplier and of course, also less admin and communication costs at the end of the day.
