Shorr is a national leader in full-service packaging solutions. We are proud to have been one of the first distributors of 3M’s industrial tapes and case sealing systems. The 3M Company has a worldwide reputation for quality, reliability, value, and innovative products, making them a natural collaborator for Shorr. Together, we offer turnkey solutions for automated operations as well as a wide variety of tape and adhesive products to meet your unique needs, whatever the industry.
One such instance occurred recently, when an American sportswear retailer was suffering costly setbacks due to inefficient packaging practices. It needed cost-saving changes – and quickly. After a comprehensive audit, Shorr identified significant challenges surrounding the customer’s tape usage. Knowing a full-court press only works with all hands on deck, we tapped top-tier supplier 3M to help deliver a win to this retailer.
Together, we developed multi-pronged solutions and strategies to improve efficiency in both brick-and-mortar locations and distribution centers alike. The result? Leveraging the high-quality 3M tapes allowed for a 35% reduction in packaging tape usage, leading to a 30% reduction in material costs for the customer.
Scotch® Box Sealing Tapes
Scotch® Box Sealing Tapes are easy to handle and maintain their performance and appearance for a tight seal in even the coldest and dampest of environments. The high-performance industrial packaging tapes are ideal for box sealing, splicing, and other demanding packaging applications. The powerful seal allows the tapes to adhere to highly recycled corrugated fiberboard boxes. The backing easily conforms around edges and on rough surfaces to provide a lasting hold. With quick adhesion and durable backing, these sealing tapes are built with the features necessary to maintain high performance in tough environments. Quickly and easily apply Scotch® Box Sealing Tape 311+, 371+ or 375+ by hand, using a manual dispenser or a 3M-Matic™ Case Sealer.
