Container Unloading: In House VS Outsourcing

container_unloading

You’ve got your container of products after the long haul across ocean or across country. Now you are faced with the need to unload it in the safest, quickest and most financially efficient way.

While doing it in house can save you on transport, there are many things you need to consider. Do you have warehousing facilities, storage, the right machinery and workers knowledgeable in container unloading in order to achieve this task?

Outsourcing means experience. This experience means that your container unloading is done in a professional and timely manner. With experience comes a set procedure in order to make sure your product is delivered on time and undamaged.

Outsourcing means fast service. Going hand in hand with experience, an experienced team with the right equipment will be able to deliver your service in a timely and reliable manner. Time can often be an extremely important factor when trying to distribute your product, so getting someone who can help you achieve your timeline goals is essential.

Outsourcing means safety. Outsourcing means you will have workers completing your container unloading that is well trained in all the safety policies and procedures that come with container unloading, which can save you the headache of untrained workers being involved in accidents.

Outsourcing means being equipped. If you are to outsource to a company experienced in container unloading, they will be fully equipped with the right machinery and tools for the job. Without the right machinery, the job can be difficult, time-consuming and even dangerous, so it is an important factor to consider when deciding who will unload your container.

If you decide to outsource your container unloading, you need to find a reliable, cost effective and fully equipped service that you can trust. Hoxton has been an established packaging company offering container unloading services for over 40 years. Hoxton can provide you with experienced container unloading services as well as any packaging or re-work needs that your product may have. Check out the Facebook and Website for contact info.

According to the ABS in 2012, nearly half (47.3%) of all working-age people with disability were not in the labour force, that is they were neither employed or actively looking for work. The ABS also states that their participation rate beaked between 25-34 years old. This means that young school leavers or middle-aged and older workers were, for a number of different reasons, not largely participating in the work force.

Entering the workforce can be an extremely rewarding and fun experience. It will offer you financial freedom, structure and a chance for social interaction.

Sydney Packaging Solutions

A lot of people ask what we do at Hoxton and I must admit that it’s hard to nail it down to a 20 second sound grab. We have explored with previous post what our function as a social enterprise is ….

sydney-packaging-solutions

We create jobs for people facing barriers to mainstream employment.

But as a social enterprise we also have a commercial aspect to what we do. We are Sydney Packaging Specialists, but what does that mean….. we are contract packers, co-packers, a packaging service, third party labour and the list goes on. But in a nutshell..

We solve your packaging headaches.

Here are some examples of Sydney Packaging solutions we have provided for customers;

Original Packaging

We undertake skin packaging for a large multinational hardware company. We receive shipping containers of raw components in from overseas. We then receipt, warehouse, skin package and pick/pack orders for the customer.  Skin packaging is excellent for retail display and has superior security benefits. We complete in excess of 100,000 skin pack units for this customer every year. This Sydney Packaging solution is an end to end solution for our customer which means they save invaluable internal resources which allows them to focus on their core business.

Promotional Packaging

We specialise in promotional packaging and undertake a line of shrink wrapping work for a Sydney based automotive supplier. We shrink wrap a promotional offer for them when they give away a small bottle of automotive fluid when you purchase a lager one. Shrink is extremely versatile and has become a very popular part of our Sydney Packaging solution. Prior to us providing this service our customer was taping the smaller bottle onto the larger one. Our shrink wrapping presentation is far superior and has also now given the company the ability to do a number of other promotions using shrink wrap.

Rework Packaging

Another line in our suite of Sydney packaging solutions is rework. We service a large national importer who imports a lot of lines from China. It happens from time to time that the item they imported doesn’t meet their specifications but the time involved in returning the product to the Chinese manufacturer means they need to find a local solution. We offer rework solutions such as over labelling, reconfiguring cartons, replacing barcode labels and updating ingredients list for the Australian market. Our customer doesn’t have the internal resources or structures for this ad-hoc work, so our rework solution is perfect for them.

So there it is, what we do, just not quiet in 20 seconds. To have a look some samples of our work pop over to our  Sydney packaging Solutions page and don’t forget check out our customer testimonials at the bottom of the page!
