Happily back on the road to Coteca
The Bag Broker have been on the exhibition trail again, visiting Coteca in Hamburg.
After a fantastic event in 2014, we jumped at the chance to return to Hamburg and the opportunity to visit our old and new customers in Germany.
For the Bag Broker, the possibility of meeting both existing and new clients is something we relish.
Due to the fact we are a global company, it is rare that all facets of the business come together to truly gain word of mouth feedback about what we are doing right, how we can improve and what the market is looking for regarding new packaging solutions to help define their brands.
Coteca 2016 was extraordinarily successful in this regard.
We were pleased to get some excellent ideas for new bag types and colours which we were, in fact, already in the pipeline.
One aspect of our service which received particular feedback was the cost of our despatch. Despatch is an area we have been looking into for some time in conjunction with our dedicated team in the Netherlands. However, based on the feedback we have received we have decided to push this forward with far greater speed.
As a result, we are now providing free shipping to the following seven countries in the EU for orders of two or more boxes; Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
For those outside these countries, we have also worked hard to find a better solution too which comes in the shape of reduced despatch rates.
We hope that the changes we are making will assist our customers and allow them to focus on the development of their businesses & brands and less on external costs such as flexible packaging.
I am also pleased to confirm that we will also be working on new bag types and variations of our popular models for 2017.
