By the Numbers

60 %
less in production
New Crates, Save on Freight

By customizing wooden crates to support the product in a unique way, the client needed only 952 seatainers, not 1428, to ship 1200 parts per week. This alone accounted for over 3 million dollars in savings.

300 k
in customer savings
Connecting Dots on Labor Costs

By streamlining the number of crates from 200 to 133, we slashed labor costs from $1864 per week to $1240. This adds up to just over $30,000 in direct handling cost savings year over year.

Packaging Solutions

We're proud to have set the bar in custom corrugated packaging, but there's never been a better time to think outside the box. We solve packaging challenges with foams, tapes, stretch films, steel, wood, plastics, kits, assemblies and more. If we can dream it, we can make it.

02

Custom Design

With cutting edge software and 5 full-time designers, we're constantly coming up with innovative structures in our Arrow Container Distribution Center (ACDC). From initial designs to full-scale prototypes, our creations are always custom-made based on your unique needs.

03

Multi-Segment Manufacturing

We've haven't just perfected this process, we actually invented it. Multi-segment manufacturing means that we don't just stay in our lane. Unlike box plants that just make boxes, we make boxes, returnables, steel racks, you name it. Is it easy to manufacture across the packaging spectrum? No. But it IS the right thing to do for our customers. And that's what matters.

04

Quick Lead Times

Our deadlines are your deadlines. Same day, next day...you tell us. While a lead time of 2-4 days is ideal, we will work with you to craft and deliver your products when you need them.

05

Inventory

Say "sayonora" to inventory management issues. Arrow offers several options and plans that guarantee you will always have product on hand. We'll gladly shoulder the burden of maintaining your inventory balance so you can focus on business as usual.

06

High Volume Production

CAD tables. Waterjets. Lasers. We have a full-fabrication arsenal and a plethora of finishing equipment. Arrow is home to the broadest range of in-house capabilities of any packaging provider in the Midwest. In another words, gigantic jobs make our day.

01
the challenge

Not Enough Stuff

The automotive supplier was only able to fit 6 parts per pack on a seatainer that holds 7 packs (42 total parts per shipment).

The customer had to use tools to put braces on after the load, the pack took up way too much floor space, and at 1200 parts per week, the current supplier could not keep up with the 200 required packs.

02
the analysis & Design

Nest For Success

We brought the parts back to our design center and hung them from the ceiling to manipulate a vertical stairstep nest. After we verified through customer supplied CAD data that the configuration was possible, we built a wooden crate that would both support and condense the parts.

In one business day, we built a pack that held 9 parts.

03
the results

The 9-Pack Stack

With fewer seatainers holding more parts, more durable packaging, and a decrease in cost for direct handling, our innovative solution made a big impact on our client's bottom line. How big?

Going from a 6- to a 9-pack solution has saved our clients just about about
3.5 million dollars a year.

Boom.
