The Shippers Group Volunteers at Books For Africa for Nonprofit Day

Posted by Margaret Harvey on Aug 19, 2022

On August 17th, National Nonprofit Day recognizes the goals and positive impacts nonprofits have on communities and the world. Awareness, research, and aid are able to reach the people around the world who need it because of the work nonprofits do. Therefore, it is so important to support our nonprofits through various efforts such as volunteering, donating, and helping raise funds.

The Shippers Group recognizes this importance, which is why we created our Shippers Gives Back program – our commitment to give charitably through a variety of efforts that help the underprivileged and build relationships within our communities. In conjunction with our Give Back program and National Nonprofit Day, a few members of our team in Atlanta spent Wednesday morning sorting through donated books at Books For Africa. Their efforts not only helped to make sure these books reached Africa, but also reach the right demographics within their communities.

The Benefits of Offering Multi and Variety Packs for Co-Packing

Posted by Margaret Harvey on Aug 11, 2022

Contract Packaging, or Co-Packing, is the process of assembling a product into its final finished packaging. It can be a simple or complex process, customized to your individual needs. Contract packagers possess the resources to respond to many different types of packaging needs in a timely manner, which gives product manufacturers the flexibility to define a packaging process that is best suited for their products.

Some common co-packing needs are for Multipacks and Variety packs. Multipacks are defined as a package of two or more individually packed items that are sold as a singular unit. This includes items like a 12 pack of soft drink cans or an 18 count of full-size candy bars. Variety packs are mixed multipacks in which two or more different products are packaged together. Some examples might include a flavor assortment of chips or an assorted flavor pack of alcoholic drinks.

National Hire a Veteran Day is observed every year on July 25th and encourages employers to consider veterans in their employment and hiring strategies. This day provides awareness and serves as a platform to show that our veterans are qualified and trained and looking for jobs.

Creating and filling opportunities to employ veterans is an important part of our hiring strategy here at The Shippers Group. As our President, Rob Doyle, is a veteran himself, this was an initiative that has been given much focus since his joining of the company. Rob, along with the Shippers’ team, recognized the need to help our veterans successfully transition to the civilian workforce.
