Kitting and packaging are critical components of warehousing and fulfillment. Products needing to be properly packaged and shipped require a process that ensures physical and barrier protection, minimized shipping security risks, proper labeling, convenience, portion control, inspections, and quality control.
Packaging has a significant impact on supply chain management and can include kitting packages, single-product/part packaging, or special government/defense packaging.
NewStream Enterprises, LLC provides comprehensive supply chain management services that increase efficiency and reduce costs.

A request for proposal (RFP) is used to ask for a solicitation in the form of a bid for a commodity, service, asset, or property. It's used to get information about the proposed asset or service. When trying to get a quote for services, you'll need to create an RFP document. Then you need to send it out to kitting and packaging service providers like NewStream.
Creating an RFP document can be difficult, and many people don't know where to start. To save you time, we've created an educational guide that covers every aspect of creating an RFP document including an RFP template, design team considerations, parameters, and guidelines.
