What is a “holistic packaging solution”?
To Akers Packaging Service Group, the needs of our customers are more than just a box, it’s their business.
Our approach is that, to truly serve the best interests of our customers, we work with our customers to make sure your packaging solution takes into account every step of your business — what is being shipped? How is it produced, and how should it arrive? Who is packaging the container, and what are their pain-points? What does the packaging and shipping process look like from start to finish? Our goal is to not only provide our customers with the perfect packaging, but to provide a packaging and shipping experience that is wholly streamlined:— cost-effective, simple, and fast.
