Saving cost with gummed paper tape

Saving cost with gummed paper tape

14/Nov/2019

Often the people responsible for logistics of the companies that Ibergum S.A. sales team visited, recognize that the packaging of their shipments does not always offer the most profesional and flattering finish image of their company, due that the material they use to close their shipments is self-adhesive plastic tape. These tapes degrade with some rapidity in medium term storage, since their materials are very sensitive to cold and heat, which causes them to lose their sealing properties, in addition to causing breakage problems. As commited companies, in a progressive way,  they are concerned about promoting their business as respectful and environmental friendly.

In all cases we find that the main reason for the use of plastic tapes is what is thought to be its ‘low cost’. The neat, safe and finished appearance in the sealing with gummed paper usually leads us to think that its use is more expensive, which a higher cost  than a standard packaging tape. But a closer look shows that this is nothing more than a false appreciation.

  • Closing a cardboard box with gummed paper means using the right and necessary material according to the exact size of the box, unlike closing with plastic adhesive tape: normally, to secure the merchandise contained in the box, much more material is used making the closing more expensive, but not for that reason, achieving total security.
