Goods that are damaged during the shipping process can negatively impact your business. Approximately 10% of packages are estimated to sustain damage during shipping, causing consumers to return about 20% of eCommerce goods due to unwanted damaged goods. Common reasons goods arrived in damaged packaging include poor packaging, insufficient packaging material, and poor handling.
Fortunately, Madsen Steel Wire Products offers state-of-the-art solutions to ensure safe, fast, and worry-free shipping. Check out this blog to learn how Madsen Steel provides fast and seamless shipping.
What Causes Products to be Damaged During Packaging and Shipping?
While not all shipping damage is preventable, the following factors are some of the most common culprits that cause damage to goods during the shipping process:
1. Poor Packaging
Poor packaging is often due to excess empty spaces in the package. Using a mailer or box far larger than the product causes it to jostle inside the packaging, eventually leading to product damage.
Unfortunately, poor packaging increases your shipping costs, since carriers determine shipping rates based on the product and its packaging dimensional weight. Using a large box takes up more space, ultimately increasing shipping costs.
2. Insufficient Cushioning Materials
Cushioning materials such as air pillows, bubble wraps, and packing peanuts provide cushioning by filling empty spaces in the packages. Insufficient cushioning material causes the product inside the packaging to make unnecessary impacts against the packaging, resulting in damage.
3. Improper Handling
A single product passes through many different hands throughout the supply chain. One or more of these parties will probably mishandle the packaging, resulting in packaging damage.
4. Moisture Damage
Water damage occurs when a pallet/package is exposed to humid conditions. Moisture damage can be a result of many factors, including climatic conditions, spills, condensation during transport, or seawater breaching containers. Prolonged exposure to moisture has the potential to destroy fragile goods and can cause mold and mildew growth that renders the product unusable.
