With the COVID-19 epidemic affecting everyone’s lives, it is to no surprise many companies in all industries are fighting to keep their workers and consumers safe. Here at Pioneer Packaging, we’ve joined in on the fight to ensure people receive important resources and high-quality packaging. It is our duty as a company to contribute to the country’s well-being. Here are 4 ways the packaging industry can help during this crisis.
Postpone Large Gatherings but Keep Communicating
For the safety of your workers and clients, refrain from attending packaging events or meetings. The industry needs to stay on top of this pandemic in order to meet customer demands.
Domestic Pharmaceutical Production
One thing the coronavirus has revealed is our over-reliance on China-made critical medicines and Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs). Our industry can provide pharmaceutical companies with packaging that will fit their needs to efficiently benefit the public.
Remain Ethical and Reward Those Who Are
The sad truth is price gouging during a crisis happens. It’s a shame to see as it is our duty to our customers and clients to work for them, not hurt them. One way to show your support during a crisis such as COVID-19 is by waving any expedited/rush fees that they’ve accrued.
Use/Promote Hygienic Packaging
While being sustainable is important, with the crisis at hand we need to promote businesses to use single-use packaging. From a sanitary standpoint, it makes sense to throw out the product after it’s been used to eliminate it from possibly compromising people’s health. No matter which task your company undertakes, you must be cautious in delivering safe and secure products to your clients. At Pioneer Packaging, we will continue to support you during this tough time.
