To begin the package engineering process, send us your product as you pack it today. Our Package Engineers will create a custom pack design for your product using PadPak®, FillPak® or WrapPak® paper options. We will send the product back to you along with a report detailing the packaging process with images, as well as a cost analysis of the package. Download a sample report (Adobe PDF document).


By analyzing your current packaging and benchmarking it against our design, Ranpak ensures that you are receiving the best possible package design for your product. This may also include performance testing/analysis, estimated cost of current packaging materials and new box specifications, if necessary.
