Damage: Still shipping the same way & expecting different results?

If it doesn't directly affect them, most people are completely oblivious to damage. Unless it directly affects their package or their cost center, they sure as heck don't understand the need to pay for fancy protective packaging.

And, really, think about it. Put yourself in the manager’s shoes: is the cost to replace the few damaged widgets worth the expense? That manager wants immediate return on his investment. And, maybe, that's just not possible.

Packaging damage is serious stuff. Protect your business and employees.

Sit back, relax, and let me tell you a story.

Once upon a time, way back in the 1990s, there was a truck driver. He was on his normal route, delivering freight from a big distribution center to a store that would sell it to eager customers.

Now, on this particular day, just like any day, something happened. He docked his truck at the store and walked around to open the back doors of the trailer, just like any other day. The first door he opened was fine; everything was normal. But when he opened the second door, between 1,000 and 1,500 pounds of freight fell out of the trailer, injuring him significantly. In addition to head injuries and cognitive damage, he suffered extensive damage to his back, as well as numerous physical, mental, and emotional problems.
