  • Provides increased carrier life
  • Reduces carrier repair and straightening costs
  • Increases storage space (can be stacked higher)
  • Provides better payoff for wire customers

BENEFITS OF STANDARDIZATION

INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY- REDUCE MANUFACTURING COSTS
The use of Standard Carriers reduces manufacturing changes to adjust for variable carrier sizes and weights.
STANDARD PACKAGE SIZES TO CUSTOMERS
There is a positive effect on customer relations.
REDUCE STAFF HOURS
With fewer carrier sizes, less personnel time is needed at the plant to sort carrier inventory, search for ‘missing’ carriers, or arrange for carrier shipments.
REDUCE FREIGHT COSTS
With only three Standard carriers in the industry, fewer shipments of unusable carriers are made between facilities.
BETTER QUALITY CARRIERS
Empty carriers don’t have to be shipped as often and maintain their shape longer for increased carrier life.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
When quality carriers are used, there are fewer discarded carriers which has a positive environmental impact in the conservation of natural resources and a reduction in the waste stream.
REDUCE CARRIER COSTS
Total industry-wide purchases of new carriers decrease, when many manufacturers use the same sizes.
NEW CARRIERS – JUST IN TIME
Carrier manufacturers can stock Standard carrier sizes for immediate delivery.
