Vancouver Box Manufacturing: Why Going Local Makes Sense (and Dollars, too)

Racer Boxes is a proud Canadian cardboard box manufacturer, but great savings and value mean there are more reasons to shop local than unbridled patriotism.

When deciding between manufacturers based in Canada or overseas, there’s a lot to consider. One of the biggest advantages of going domestic involves sourcing.

When a company requires a product delivered reliably to a set schedule, then domestic is often the way to go. Safety standards in Canada are higher than plants overseas, meaning it’s far less likely for a shipment to be disrupted due to manufacturing, shipping, and customs delays. In short, shopping local increases the chances that you’ll get what you need when you need it.

Cost savings are another factor. While it’s always better to buy in bulk, it is possible to have too much of a good thing—and that brings up the question of storage. It isn’t worth saving money on bulk purchases if the savings are spent on transport, custom, and storage costs.

That’s why Racer Boxes offers small-batch deliveries. Boxes are made and transported to customers according to a predetermined schedule. It’s like our very own subscription box service—only boxes are what actually arrive. And in many cases, the net benefits of local regular delivery far outweigh the savings of buying overseas in bulk.

Racer Boxes offers flexibility to customers with low, mid to high volume requirements while maintaining affordable prices and superior quality. To learn more about working with a Vancouver-based box manufacturer, contact Racer Boxes at (604) 270–8205 or racerinquiries@gmail.com.
