Packaging is so much more than placing products in a box and hoping that it reaches its destination on time and undamaged.
In truth, the packaging process is heavily regulated and must meet strict federal guidelines. Many products – particularly food grade items and consumer goods – must be kept at an ideal temperature to ensure that the items arrive fresh. High levels of cleanliness are vital to avoid contamination from outside sources.
First Logistics lets you take advantage of a top-rate staff that is highly experienced at managing high capacity orders and a streamlined process that slashes your equipment and labor costs. The result is you get your products to market faster while, at the same time, meeting industry standards.
Warehouse kitting is the process of combining several SKUs into a single SKU that can be packaged and shipped quickly. First Logistics consistently builds complex kits that are comprised of up to 20 different products, a real boon to retailers and multi-level marketers. As a result, you can count on our significant warehousing kitting experience to:
- Save money: Through pre-assembly of kits, you can ensure the most efficient use of labor, with built-in quality checks to ensure accuracy.
- Manage volume spikes and last minute requests: We pre-assemble 90% of the base kit so when the need rises, we can get the kit out the door fast.
You can count on First Logistics to help you swiftly and economically meet the demand for brand-building custom packs.
Pick & Pack
As a key component of our standard services, we can pick and pack individual items into multi-pack cartons. This process of managing open case inventories requires hands-on experience, and First Logistics has long been a leader.
Our pick and pack expertise dates back to the mid 1990s when we launched the first large scale pick and pack operation in the Chicago area focused on Internet fulfillment. We quickly demonstrated our ability to pick hundreds of multi-part orders for rapid next-day delivery. Some of our biggest accounts went on to become household names.
Today First Logistics offers you a wide range of options that can be customized to any market. Whether you are producing infomercials or selling online, we can seamlessly manage the data, billing, and fulfillment to meet your needs.
In addition, we streamline transportation, ensuring undamaged delivery while simultaneously lowering costs and minimizing packaging materials.
Retail POP displays and accessories for multiple store locations can tax the existing space of even the largest companies. With more than 500,000 square feet of storage space, First Logistics can easily handle your largest displays, even for national rollout. We are experts at assembling, collating and shrink-wrapping even intricate POP displays.
And, our fulfillment capabilities are second to none. We understand that potential sales revenue is lost if your POP materials or brand promotional products do not reach your store locations on schedule. Count on us to make it happen. We are strategically located at America’s crossroads so that stores receive your displays quickly, no matter where they are located.
