Open Cartons

We were recently audited by one of our customers and one of the findings was open cartons at the presses. The press operators usually make several stacks of cartons ahead of time, and the cartons on the top of the stacks are open, with the liner/bag already placed in the box also open. As a response...

Re: Resin Shipping Surcharges

It certainly is problematic, and in my opinion a lazy approach to deal with an honest problem. Like I'm sure all processors, we'd rather our vendors change their $/lb cost than force us to do the math on every shipment. Our approach has been to set standard order sizes and then create a simple sprea...
