Custom Carton Packaging: Made in America to Ease the Supply Chain Crunch
Over the course of the last two years, the entire world has faced a huge variety of challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the U.S., one of these challenges has been dealing with vulnerabilities in the packaging supply chain. As a U.S. based custom carton packaging company, we at Carton Service are uniquely equipped to help address these vulnerabilities.
The Problem with Offshoring
The U.S. has been extremely reliant on foreign supply chains for decades. Between the 1980s and the 2000s, the offshoring of manufacturing jobs became very common for U.S. companies. Though offshoring was cheaper than domestic manufacturing, it decreased the ability of U.S. based companies to respond to market conditions and control supply chains.
Many companies in the packaging industry have been offshoring production for years. This became a pressing issue in the midst of the pandemic, when the production capabilities of custom carton packaging manufacturers all over the world plummeted. Carton packaging is used in a huge variety of markets, so when this happened, the U.S. suddenly faced all kinds of product shortages due to reliance on foreign supply chains.
The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed some of the downsides of offshoring in the packaging industry. It is time for U.S. companies to consider re-shoring custom carton packaging manufacturing so that we can avoid shortages of food products and other consumer goods in the future.
Our Efforts to Strengthen the U.S. Supply Chain
At Carton Service, we understand the importance of on-shoring manufacturing. Rather than relying on factories in other countries to produce our products, we manufacture our custom carton packaging domestically.
We are focused on doing our part to streamline and improve the domestic packaging supply chain by putting our American-made custom carton packaging into the hands of U.S. based manufacturing companies.
