Berlin Packaging, the leading full-service supplier of plastic, glass, and metal containers and closures, today announced that its 99%-or-better on-time product delivery performance has reached a record 15 years, an unrivalled achievement within the U.S. packaging industry. Every month since June 2004, Berlin has executed just-in-time delivery for over 2.4 million shipments of custom and stock packaging products, enabling its customers to enjoy exceptional benefits in supply chain smoothness, cash flow, and bottom-line profitability.

Execution Key to Growing Customers’ Net Income 

Berlin Packaging is a $2.6 billion supplier of glass, plastic, and metal containers and closures for customers of all types across all sectors. Almost 90% of all Berlin Packaging customers currently utilize the company’s inventory stocking programs. By relying on Berlin, customers can reduce the amount of inventory they hold while enhancing their operational efficiencies. As a result, these programs help boost customer profits by cutting customer expenses—less carrying costs, shrinkage, and obsolescence; less facility costs, taxes, and insurance; and less handling costs and administration.

“Elevating your supply chain’s inventory management doesn’t just make operational sense; it also makes business sense,” stated Andrew Berlin, Chairman and CEO of Berlin Packaging. “Our 15-year 99+% delivery track record is a testament to our systems, processes, and people with a unified focus on helping our customers’ bottom lines.”

Improved Technology Delivers Improved Results

In addition to Berlin’s industry-crushing, 15-year streak of 99+% on-time delivery, the company’s ISO 9001 certification means customers can expect a thrilling experience during all touchpoints of the purchasing process. That process is buoyed by the company’s significant technological investments, including a robust new product information management system and eEnablement portal for order management and tracking. BerlinPackaging.com, which stocks thousands of competitively priced items with many available for same-day shipping, offers customers of all sizes a multi-channel approach to get the products they want, at the price they want, delivered when they want.

Avoiding Sourcing Headaches

By working with 900+ packaging manufacturers worldwide, including many long standing, secure partnerships in the U.S., Berlin Packaging helps to ensure a stable supply chain in an often-unstable world. Through proactive tracking of supplier quality and performance and monitoring the ever-changing global landscape, the company can mitigate service disruptions or non-conformance with its unique ability to find alternative sourcing solutions.

In addition, the company offers world-class package design services and custom tooling expertise to bring innovation to market, finding customers packaging to their exact specifications, all offered at no-charge in exchange for new business.
