Kitting and pre-packing

Kitting and pre-packing processes differ to standard picking and packing methods and require a specialised team to ensure the quality and accuracy of your end product.

The term “kitting” refers to the preassembly of individual items into ready to send kits, as opposed to the process of picking and packing individual items as they are ordered. Not only is fulfilment kitting simple, but the potential for saving both time and money is great too!

Kits are generally used for whole units that contain multiple SKU’s or packaged deals or promotions. However, the process can be tailored to suit any of your business needs.

Are you running a promotion, in which you want to send out monthly kits of samples for a given period of time? Utilising kitting and pre-packing techniques means your monthly kits will be accurately kitted, packaged and ready to send to your customers as they sign up for your promotion.

Why should you take advantage of kitting?

  • You can run multi product promotional offers with ease
  • Make purchasing value packs (e.g. 3-for-2) easier for your customers
  • Picking and packing accuracy
  • Provide customers with a trial of your newest products
  • Stock control management
  • Fast and effective distribution and shipping options
  • Ensure your materials and products are available for delivery
  • Packaged goods barcoded according to your needs, specifications or preferences in order to ensure proper distribution and tracking – should the need for recall of any individual component or returns arise

Kitting may include adding aromas and information cards, special gift wrapping, ribbons and other decorations to enhance presentation.

Of course, you don’t want just any kitting and pre-packing service provider. You want a team of industry specialists with only the latest in IT developments and software to ensure your products, promotions and packages are kitted and distributed with accuracy, speed and efficiency.

For more than 28 years, Coghlan has been working to perfect IT systems to help you better manage the kitting and pre-packing of your products. At Coghlan, we can help with everything from packaging promotional kits or basic information kits to complex kitting with multiple SKU’s.
