Is ordering workwear and PPE for your team time consuming or a logistical hassle? Discover the many benefits of using a Manpack for workwear and PPE with Clad Safety.
Why You Need Manpack When You Order Workwear and PPE
Are you responsible for ordering workwear or PPE for your team?
With so many employees requiring uniforms, health and safety clothing, safety footwear or PPE, it can take a lot of time and energy to distribute items to the relevant people once they arrive. Plus, keeping track of what has been ordered and by whom can be a major challenge.
If you have a large team and work across multiple sites, ordering workwear and PPE can be complicated. That is if you’re doing things the old way instead of ordering through a workwear portal such as CladServe, which allows you to opt for a manpack system.
Designed to make the process of ordering workwear and PPE straightforward, a manpack ordering system gets the right items to the correct team members with ease.
Here’s an overview of how a manpack system works. Most importantly, how it can save your entire business time, energy and resources.
Manpack: An Overview
Manpacks (also known as wearer packs) are a type of ordering system designed by workwear and PPE suppliers such as ourselves here at Clad Safety.
How it works is that when you place an order with us, we won’t just ship out a large order to one person at a single site.
Instead, each item will be placed in individual packaging and addressed to a specific person. There will be information on the outside of their individual packaging detailing exactly what has been ordered and who it’s for.
We can also consolidate orders for multiple wearers into one delivery. This saves on delivery costs while also being better for the environment.
All in a way that means when items arrive, they get to the right people with ease.
Why Would Your Business Need A Manpack System?
Here at Clad Safety, we’ve found that many of our customers work across multiple sites. Based on customer feedback, we realised it’s much easier if replacement workwear and PPE can be delivered to an individual at a particular site, rather than sent as a generic package to the head office.
Otherwise, sending a box of items intended for multiple employees to a central location makes it too time consuming to sort through. Also, items may not reach the relevant people promptly which could create project delays or even safety issues on site.
Customer scenario: A utility company requires fast delivery of high visibility clothing to site. The applicable team member logs onto CladServe. They select the items they need and the manpack system will ensure each piece of clothing, safety footwear or PPE is delivered to the relevant site and team member.
Previously, buying hi vis clothing for a team was extremely time consuming, but now every aspect of the process is automated for speed and efficiency.
Manpack systems were designed to enhance the customer experience for all those involved in the workwear and PPE ordering process.
Here are just some of the top ways your organisation will benefit from a manpack ordering system.
Saves time – No need to spend hours trying to determine which items have been ordered and by who. Or even waste time trying to trace items that have ended up in the hands of the wrong person. With clear labelling, there’s no room for confusion or error.
Saves money – Not only will you save money through the reduced time spent sorting through ordered items, but packaging and shipping costs will also be cheaper.
Clear traceability – Stay in control of the entire ordering process. Remain on top of costs with all the information you need easily accessible.
Improves accuracy and consistency – A workwear portal specifies the exact items that need to be ordered for your team. When wearers go to order, they can’t go off course. A manpack delivery system supercharges this level of accuracy down to how the items also arrive at your location.
Reduce storage demands – When orders aren’t piling up because they are being instantly distributed after arriving, there’s no need to find extra room for storage. Plus, if large quantities are ordered and not stored safely, this in itself can cause a hazard at your location. No such issues can occur when you switch to a manpack system instead, as orders don’t have a chance to pile up.
Kinder to the environment – A manpack order will contain multiple employee orders within the same box. This reduces the need for multiple deliveries to the same address, less packaging and less couriers on the road.
