Sitting on Surplus Packaging Inventory?

No matter how well purchasing and production cycles are planned, some companies will end up with excess, unneeded packaging inventory.

There are many reasons why excess inventory happens. Product demand can decline, packaging changes, design changes, or simply the product or packaging has become unneeded. The problem with this excess inventory is that it can reduce profit margins by taking up valuable warehouse space and create extra overhead costs associated with storing and maintaining the obsolete packaging.

So what can be done with this excess packaging inventory? Throwing it away or dumping it in a landfill can be costly and have a negative environmental impact. Plus, the decision to dump the inventory without trying to regain some of your initial investment is a difficult decision to make. Recycling is another option that might recoup some cost, but McKernan typically pays more than recycle value.

McKernan helps businesses recover some of these costs with their Precycle® program. McKernan's Precycle® program helps manufacturers and companies reduce corporate waste by purchasing unused, unbranded overstock packaging components. McKernan then repurposes this packaging to other businesses at a reduced cost. Click to learn more about the Precycle® program.
