Ecommerce and buying online is now an important part of many consumers’ lives and the drinks’ industry is no exception, although it lags behind some other sectors. Many people think nothing of adding wine and beer to their online grocery shop, while alcohol brands offering subscription services and monthly clubs are growing in popularity. Meanwhile, the trend towards alcohol free drinks also presents an opportunity for retailers who wish to tap into a rapidly developing market.
Questions around delivery
Still, as a retailer delivering bottles to customers across the country, how do you present your products in the best possible way? How do you ensure that goods arrive at the intended destination intact? How do you limit breakages so that you don’t face the prospect of refunds and returns seriously undermining your bottom line? Suitable protective packaging is one answer.
Why choose polystyrene bottle packaging
There are several reasons why polystyrene makes for a good solution to package bottles.
Moulded polystyrene can be used to protect and cushion a variety of products and shapes in transit – including bottles.
However, that isn’t the only reason to choose polystyrene as your packaging material of choice and it isn’t the only reason drinks’ retailers favour it.
The benefits of polystyrene as a packaging choice
For a start, polystyrene is lightweight. Unlike other packing materials, it will help to keep shipping and distribution costs as low as possible.
Despite its lightweight qualities, it is also robust and durable so can withstand some of the inevitable knocks and bumps during transportation from one place to another.
It is also a highly effective insulator so that businesses can rest assured the temperature of a bottle will not be adversely affected by external hot and cold elements.
Considering all the advantages above, it is no surprise that it isn’t just the beverage industry that chooses polystyrene. It’s great for food and pharmaceutical companies too – especially when the temperature of goods needs to be kept constant.
