Tuscan Iron Doors

Objectives

  • Protect Tuscan Iron Entries’ 1,000-pound, custom-made ornamental iron doors during shipping

Solution

  • Covered the entire pack in a white pallet wrap, preventing anything from getting inside the frame

Results

  • Shortened assembly time for the packs from 16 hours to six hours
  • Created a savings of 50 percent on packaging materials costs
  • Cut shipping weight on each pack by 10 percent to 15 percent, creating more storage space in their facility
