We look at ALL of your packaging related costs.

AmeriGlobe's system of cost savings is designed to increase your savings by improving your bulk bag package. Bulk Bags that look bad cost more money. You may have increased damage intransit, extra labor righting bulk bags in the warehouse, higher freight because you can not get the maximum weight in the truck or container, or a host of other costs.

By looking at all of the associated issues, we can at times save you MORE money than you pay for your bulk bags. We can improve the way your bulk bags look, fill, stack. ship and discharge.

Bags Designed on Price vs. Bags Designed to Perfection


Successful Case Study

In this example, a customer was not maximizing his containers. We saved money by redesigning the bulk bag to allow them to buy less bags and ship less containers while shipping the same volume. We also designed the bulk bag so that they could ship in a 20' foot container instead of a 40' container.

 
Old Package 36”x 36”x 48”
Bag held 1995 lbs Cost $12.58
Annual Usage 105,000
Overseas 40’ Containers $3500/shipment
20 bags per shipment 5250 shipments
20 bags @$12.58 $251.60
Total Shipping Cost = $3500+$251.60 $3751.60
Total Annual Costs= 5250 x $3751.60 $19,695,900

The customer was filling the bulk bags with 200 fewer pounds of product than optimum, they were single stacking in 40' foot containers. The bulk bags had empty, wasted space in them.

New Package 37” x 37” x 42”
Bag held 2205 lbs Cost $12.58
Annual Usage 95,000
Overseas 20’ Containers $2700/shipment
20 bags per shipment 4750 shipments
20 bags @$12.58 $251.60
Total Shipping Cost = $2700 + $251.60 $2951.60
Total Annual Costs = 4750 x $2951.60 $14,020,100

Total Estimated Annual Savings = $5,675,800!!!
We moved them to a bigger base diminsion, reduced the height, and added our patented Load 'n' Lock Top®. This allowed them to put an extra 200 pounds in each bulk bag. The height reduction gained by using the Load 'n' Lock Top® allowed our customer to double stack in the container and further lower cost by using a smaller container. The increased bag volume allowed them to ship the same amount of product, but required them to buy 10,000 fewer bags and pay for 500 fewer overseas containers.
