There might be a lot of reasons why companies might purchase packaging products from companies from other cities in Canada, or from other countries around the world. Sometimes it makes economical sense to order products from companies which offer lower prices, because of their lower overhead costs. However, it is important to consider many factors on top of monetary concerns when purchasing packaging. In this blog post we we will discuss reasons why to choose Vancouver based company ibox Packaging as the company for all your packaging solutions over companies overseas.
Purchasing products with lower prices seems to be a no brainer. And there are companies operating overseas that might be able to offer lower prices than what is competitive in the industry in Canada. However, purchasing packaging products and importing them into Canada might have more risks than benefits. First of all you are bringing a foreign product into Canada and there are customs implications to overcome. Secondly, the amount of time that it takes from a shipment to get to you is obviously longer than it is as if you go locally; from manufacturing, to shipping, to delivery.

There is great demand for companies that operate with sustainable practices, and it is very important because corrugated cardboard boxes is a product made out of trees, and it is imperative that companies are being environmentally responsible.
Overall, there are many other factors on top of the monetary factor that should be considered when purchasing packaging products.
