Tis’ the season for Lead Times
Tis’ almost the season for giving and here at The Corrugated Case Company, we wanted to give the gift that keeps on giving — a heads up on our extended lead times, so you can make sure your projects get completed in time during this very busy time of year!
With over 23 years of industry experience closely working with customers, acting as their port of call for packaging solutions across the UK, we have some knowledge of how these pesky lead times work. But for those who are not aware of what lead times are, you are in for a treat! Hold on to your jingle bells and strap yourselves in, because we are about to go into the wonderful world of lead times at Corrugated Case Company.
You might be thinking to yourselves, what are your lead times Corrugated Case? We would tell you that it is super top-secret, classified information that only our clients have the privilege of knowing. But seeing that you are here, we can tell you that on average it is 5 to 7 working days for projects to be completed from consultation to arriving at your doorstep.
We have to be honest with you and all of our clients, all order quantities styles and design vary in lead time on several variants. More and more often now, companies are ensuring that they are choosing recyclable packaging, so there is no excuse to not recycle. By the way, did you know that all of our products are made to be recycled? We like to make sure that we are doing our best to help the environment and those cute sea turtles that don’t need our excessive use of plastics.
We know what you are thinking, what happens when it gets really busy, does the lead times change then? — We can definitely and categorically confirm that it does. As our amazing clients; new or existing, increase their demand for our clearly amazing products, it means that our staff are busy at work making sure that all of our machinery are operating and that your orders are being completed on time. On average, we tend to see our busy period increase the lead times to 7 to 10 working days.
However, we will always have time for all of our clients to ensure that they get their packaging solutions on time. You should get in touch as soon as possible, even if it is just for a quote, so we can make sure that we get our little worker elves on the [corrugated] case. We can neither confirm or deny that we are working with Father Christmas; providing him and his workforce with the essential packaging for all of his presents. Essentially, everyone is getting busier and busier, the closer we get to Christmas, so we caution everyone to get your orders in sooner rather than later.
Speaking of Christmas — did you know that over 3,000 tonnes of turkey is cooked and prepared over this period of the year? Along with 25 million Christmas puddings, 175 million mince pies and a partridge in a pear tree are consumed on an average Christmas in the UK.
