Signs of Unreliable Packaging Suppliers

With a plethora of packaging suppliers flooding the current market, international businesses must distinguish between reliable and unreliable providers. To address this issue, Haplast will unveil 5 extremely important and prominent signs of unreliable packaging suppliers, listed in this article.

Inconsistent Product Quality

In the case of a reputable packaging supplier, with its manufacturing facility, the quality of products is usually consistent. However, for a supplier that has to source from various external entities, ensuring product quality becomes challenging. Importing low-quality packaging, prone to shortages, breakage, or tearing, can lead to financial losses for businesses. If a business is dealing with a supplier exhibiting this sign, it indicates an unreliable packaging provider.

Lack of Certifications

Every industry demands that manufacturers and suppliers obtain specific certifications. In the packaging industry, fundamental certifications like SGS (Société Générale de Surveillance SA), BRC (British Retail Consortium), GRS (Global Recycled Standard), etc., are imperative. If a supplier lacks essential certifications such as food safety or environmental certifications, it signals non-compliance with necessary standards and regulations.

Slow or Infrequent Communication

A reputable packaging supplier should always respond to queries and assist in problem-solving for customers promptly. Signs of an unreliable supplier include delayed responses or infrequent communication, making it difficult for businesses to reach them via phone or schedule direct meetings. In extreme cases, they may be unwilling to entertain office or factory visits.

Inconvenient Payment Methods

Apart from quality and certifications, a reliable packaging supplier offers flexible and secure payment methods for customers. Businesses should not worry about the validity of payment methods or the legitimacy of bank details used by the supplier. If a business is concerned about these issues, it’s a sign that it’s time to consider a new supplier.

Delayed Deliveries

The final sign of an unreliable supplier is deliveries taking longer than agreed upon in contracts or commitments. Late deliveries, coupled with unreliable logistics partners, result in businesses incurring significant costs due to suboptimal cargo space usage and compensation costs for not delivering products on time.
