Challenges remain in online packaging procurement experience

24 April 2018

It’s still too hard to get prices of packaging products online, say respondents to the 2017 Packaging Buyers Online Behavior Study. And social media is not much help for facilitating a purchase. So what do most packaging buyers rely on the most when it comes to validating suppliers and solutions? A majority of respondents (60%) say “Recommendation/advice from a colleague or friend.”
These are just some of the highlights of the third annual packaging purchasing study—done in partnership with Fontys University of Applied Sciences—that identifies trends in how professionals use the internet to research and buy packaging products and services (News Item Packaging Digest, 12 April 2018).
