Experience to solve any protective packaging problem

Unsolved packaging problems can quickly become larger issues that cost you and your company lots of money, or worse yet, create an unhappy customer.

Our Approach

Sonoco's Protective Solutions Division is uniquely qualified given the level of on-staff experience in the protective packaging and distribution segments.

Thinking you have a problem is only the first step in solving an issue. With today's complex distribution environment, combined with confusing packaging options, and increasing government and retail regulations, it is easy to get confused.

Over many years we have developed an approach to help our customers solve problems ranging from product shipping damage, to writing packaging specifications for major retailers, to providing detailed root cause analysis for major field failures.
