Late shipper deal – opportunity or headache?

Late shipper deal – opportunity or headache?

What’s the first thing you think about when you’re offered a last minute opportunity to put a new pre-filled shipper in-store? How it should look? What it will cost? Who can make the units? What about co-packing?
Remember that the retailer has special design guidelines. The design will affect the price, co-packing will affect delivery schedules, and so on.
And, don’t forget the details – brand approval, transit tests and colour control. Which pallets do you need? Who orders them? Who books into the distribution centre? Insurance in transit? The list of considerations is endless. Suddenly this great sales prospect begins to look very complex. And time is short…

But there is another way. Weedon PSC provides a complete turnkey solution for pre-filled shippers, with everything you need under one roof including transit tests, artwork production, manufacture, co-packing, distribution and delivery. As the country’s leading independent manufacturer of Point of Sale and pre-filled merchandising units (MUs), Weedon PSC understands retailer guidelines. Its experts in structural and graphic design can ensure your shipper does the job it is intended to do, both in terms of surviving the challenges of the supply chain and in attracting customers in-store.


In addition, the company’s dedicated MU team can source the right pallets for each retailer, liaise with retailer customers and co-ordinate deliveries with distribution centres.
