Product Preparation


We define product preparation as putting the finishing touches on a base SKU – or customized SKU – to allow it to ship to the end customer.

  • Shrink Wrapping and Registered Film – CDS offers the ability to shrink-wrap your products – using registered film in some cases – into twin or multi-packs to help drive product volume. We will then re-pack, seal and inkjet customer required information while maintaining code date traceability of the original products.
  • Heat Tunnel Processing – A heat tunnel allows a case of product to be shrink-wrapped and labeled (SKU, date coding, production shift) via an ink-jet mechanism. This applies to both just-manufactured product as well as case-level items produced via a kitting process.
  • Custom Labeling – Product can be labeled or re-labeled to meet particular needs: promotions, selling guidelines for the destination consignee or locality, or correcting a label error in the manufacturing process. Whatever the need, CDS has the procedures and printers to get the job done.
  • Air Bags – CDS can apply air bags to truck shipments to prevent product damage en route to its destination.
