Our product transformation process is tailored to specific requirements, with the ability to support dynamic models for multiple Stock keeping Units (SKUs) delivered through multiple different channels.

    By conducting a supply chain network analysis, the solution design team can integrate and tailor solutions for clients’ unique needs to provide a seamless route to market. From in-region, near-shore options to embedded solutions, the focus is on Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). RRD’s global platform can help optimize the supply chain from packaging design through to logistics, manufacturing, final pack, fulfillment and reverse logistics.

  • Packaging Design & Engineering

    Packaging Design & Engineering

    Every project begins with a comprehensive assessment of five factors: product, brand, manufacturing, environment and cost. From creative brief, rough sketches and 3D rendering to prototypes, RRD’s cost-to-use analysis, materials and graphic explorations leads to a series of perceptive concepts that can be reviewed and scored.

    Following concept approval, our engineering phase is where we create 2D and 3D CAD files, develop prototypes for testing and customer approval and determine manufacturing production plans. RRD’s flexible packaging solutions range from design creation to final delivery of the finished package.

  • Prepress


    Year after year, companies rely on RRD to produce compelling packaging using industry-leading solutions, advanced technologies and refined processes to help build, reinforce and enhance brand awareness and engagement.

Digital asset management solutions ensure brand consistency and product integrity across the entire literature manufacturing platform.
