Securing – and Protecting – Products During Transit in the Automotive Industry

The team at PolyFlex is always looking for ways to help our clients. Whether we’re recommending new expendable packaging, OEM parts or thermoformed plastic dunnage, our goal is to provide our clients with the tools that they need to keep their products secure and protected during transit. In our experience, one of the best ways to do this – particularly with regards to the automotive industry – is by employing dunnage with vibration dampening.

Road and rail travel can be perilous for automotive parts. The constant motion, unpredictable bumps and vibrations caused by these forms of travel can cause products to become loose in their packaging and dislodge from their shipping racks. The results, in many cases, can range from annoying to catastrophic. On the annoying end, the motion can cause cosmetic damage that can reduce the value of your products or cause end-users to return them. On the catastrophic end, vibration can completely destroy your products, rendering them unusable and – by extension – unsalable.

At PolyFlex Products, we are committed to providing solutions to all of our clients, including those operating in the automotive industry. Manufacturing a range of plastic, rubber, urethane and short-run injection molded dunnage, we are well-versed in providing cost-efficient and effective solutions. If you’ve been looking for a company that will collaborate with you, work to understand your problems and then devise solutions that tackle those problems head on, contact us today to discuss how we can help.
