Office chair manufacturer

 

Challenge

With fuel costs rising by the day, the office chair manufacturer needed to reduce freight expenses and ship more chairs per truckload.

Veritiv solution

Instead of focusing solely on the packaging, Veritiv recommended that the manufacturer modify the chair design as well so it could be taken apart, and shipped in a smaller carton. Meanwhile, our team designed a carton and four corrugated bases that would secure each unit and fit any model in one box.

Results

Since implementing their new chair designs and packaging, the company has decreased annual freight costs by over $750K, significantly reduced their carbon footprint, lowered damage claims by over 44% and freed up employees to work on other tasks.
