Packaging Industry Updates

We're still seeing a cardboard shortage in the UK. A big influence on the issue has been Amazon buying a big percentage of the UK cardboard material. However with lockdown easing shortly we should see more material being recycled, therefore cardboard material availability should increase too.

Material costs are still rising. Due to Brexit and the costs of importing and exporting goods in our country, the cost of material is rising across the globe. If this price increase is affecting you, contact our sales team on how you can reduce your packaging, or we can help you find an alternative product.

Due to the 135% cost increase in container shipments, the extra costs are hitting businesses strong. The shortage in container access is due to the surge we have seen in the lockdown of people renovating homes and offices while staff members are away. However, as we return to normality in the coming months there is hope that costs will become more stable and predictable.
