But why would you need the services of a contract packager? You should talk to Versatile Packagers for contract packaging services because…

  • Versatile Packagers offers the ability to meet the needs of companies and organizations looking to bring products into the U.S.
  • We can help you navigate new tariffs by assembling your products inside the U.S. while globally sourcing the components. We also offer individualized solutions and specialized assembly.
  • With Versatile Packagers, no need to worry about the stress of carrying excess inventory that comes along with assembling your products overseas.
  • With Florida’s growing number of ports handling more freight than ever, Versatile Packagers is in the perfect location to ship your products. And with the expansion of the Panama Canal to allow modern cargo needs, your port and freight costs and fees will be lower than ever.
  • Florida has the second-lowest state taxes per capita and is one of only seven states without a personal income tax – resulting in more labor availability with Versatile Packagers to meet your contract packaging needs.
  • Shipping from Florida is more affordable than most states as it is primarily a service state meaning more product and trucks are coming in to Florida than are going out. This creates a surplus of trucks trying to find loads so freight is cheaper here than out of some of the larger hubs. (See chart below, courtesy of Versatile Packagers)

  • Contract packagers, such as Versatile Packagers, are experts in new packaging forms, often unfamiliar to your staff and requiring specific packaging equipment.
