Once you have chosen your manufacture, you need to decided if you are going to allow them to do the packaging of the product or if you want to do it yourself, this needs to be the first decision that needs to be made.
If you decide the manufacturer does the packaging into final retail boxes then your manufacturer will inform you how many boxes they can fit in a container. This is a fine calculation and should be double checked. Typically at Invention Steps we provide 3D illustrations of boxes in a container showing you in detail the exact shipping figures. If your supplier is out and the true figure is not correct then the cost of each part may be affected.
Packaging is very important in ensuring that the product remains safe so don’t try and cram too many parts into one box.
Ensure you understand how many parts you will be getting with each container load, this is vital to working out final sale prices.
