A closer look at integration

Saddle Creek has integrated secondary contract packaging services into its warehouse and transportation services. This integrated approach enables CPG companies the ability to take costs out of their supply chain.

How? The traditional route is that both product and package manufacturing operations feed into a contract packaging operation. From there, packaged products go to the customer’s distribution center, and from there, they’re bound for stores, fulfillment houses, and elsewhere.

Saddle Creek filters product and package manufacturing into a single point of contact, which handles contract packaging, warehousing, and transportation all under one roof, Costs are thereby reduced before finished goods move out.

Tom Collins, Saddle Creek director of marketing, says customers using more than one of its services generate 87% of the company’s revenue, and 72% of its revenue comes from customers using more than one of its facilities.
