Sales of automotive aftermarket parts are increasingly happening online. Safely shipping these parts worldwide can be a challenge because they’re often large, heavy, and come in various awkward shapes. Watch the video to learn how sealing your cartons with water-activated tape rather than plastic tape can help assure your shipped products arrive safely and with a professional image.
E-commerce sales of auto aftermarket parts in the U.S. are projected to grow 150% by 2024. Worldwide, auto aftermarket parts are also expected to experience significant growth, making e-commerce for auto aftermarket parts a great opportunity.
Automotive parts are often heavy, large, or fragile when shipped. They’re often shipped in cartons sealed with plastic tape, which is not a secure way to seal these kinds of cartons and does not reflect a positive image on your company’s fulfillment practices.
Using plastic tape to seal your cartons presents a unique concern when shipping heavy and large items, including industrial parts. Plastic tape often does not hold heavy or large products and may arrive at their destination damaged and unsightly.
