“Why would I want to buy from American Eagle Packaging?”
Answer: Here are eight good reasons to use American Eagle Packaging for your packaging needs.
We manage your inventory needs effectively.
We calculate all the variables that go into delivering your packing supplies on time: production lead time for a particular product, delivery time required, inventory utilization, current inventory levels, etc.
Better overall pricing.
You are likely to get better overall pricing while removing the headaches that come with managing your packaging needs.
You can leverage our buying power.
We purchase over 300 million square feet of corrugate and millions of dollars in packaging supplies every year, so we get the most competitive discounts from our vendors.
We buy and stock up to three months of inventory for you.
Our ability to buy at higher monthly quantities allows us to buy at a better price point. It also eliminates production lead time. We can deliver you your packaging supply when you need via our Just-in-time (JIT) Program or our Drop Trailer program.
We work with multiple vendors.
We aren’t subjected to pricing mood swings that sometimes occur with a vendor due to capacity issues at a particular time. We can be selective as to whom we use to get the best pricing possible.
We provide our customers with an extra layer of quality control.
As a strategic partner, we do everything possible to assure your packaging products are correct. Therefore, we provide an extra layer of quality assurance. American Eagle Packaging has its own in-house Quality Assurance Inspector to make sure what hits your floor is free of quality issues coming from a vendor. This helps minimize production interruption that can be caused with defective packaging.
We are a full service packaging supplier.
You call the shots, and we can manage the entire packaging process for you so you can focus on your core business.
We can give you more bang for your buck.
We help you stretch your dollars by providing you with value-added services along with your packaging needs.
