Arnold Packaging - Outside the Container

Outside the Container

Product damage caused by an unsecured container, moisture, corrosion or electrostatic discharge has an immediate effect on your bottom line — not just in that one instance but in the long-term impact it has on customer satisfaction.

That customer can be a consumer waiting on a penny-sized piece of electronics or the U.S. government waiting on a satellite. Every product you ship is critical to your success.

You might also have the challenge of meeting the federal regulations of shipping of hazardous materials by various modes of transport or of meeting military regulations for international shipping. To us, it’s simple, because we solve those types of challenges every day.

Whether your company has its own packaging department or you’re using Arnold Packaging’s on-site packaging services, we will give you a full consultation on all of the ways you can protect your package from the outside.
