Clifford Packaging are a UK Supermarket Approved Corrugated Supplier

With the big 4 supermarkets having different shelf sizes pressure is placed on their suppliers to produce product in different pack size formats for specific retailers. This creates the need for the manufacturer/food producer to work with many different corrugated packaging SKU’s. With corrugated packaging being bulky to store and space at food producers usually being at a premium for their finished product a just-in time (JIT) delivery service is often required.

Learn how Clifford Packaging supports firms supplying to supermarkets

Clifford offers its customers the possibility of holding finished stock of their bespoke packaging for a period of up to 3 months for it to be called off on a just-in-time basis. Stock holding of corrugated allows for unscheduled production changes at our customers. If retailers forget to order or demand increases unexpectedly we have the finished product in stock unlike many other packaging suppliers who would have to schedule in production and potentially let down the customer.

Loads can be made up of any or all product i.e., mix and match loads.

The big four corrugated packaging manufactures in the UK all prefer to deliver a full load of one product rather than a mix of product. Unless you have sufficient storage space and expertise to effectively manage stocks, the service offered by Clifford Packaging is ideally suited to the thousands of businesses delivering into the UK supermarket sector. Note that we also offer this service in Ireland.

Other Benefits of JIT stock holding by Clifford Packaging

Other benefits of Clifford’s stock holding service for JIT delivery is that we only invoice products when they are delivered, which offers obvious cash-flow benefits to our customers. This in turn offers a further benefit in that the customer can order larger initial volumes to take advantage of more attractive unit pricing.
