Packaging Bags MOQ: the minimum order quantity of purchasing the packaging bags.
Packaging bags size, customized printing or inventory, printing process, even the suppliers low and peak seasons, the MOQ will be different.
Usually, the Minimum order quantity of composite packaging bag between 20~30 thousand pcs, single layer or simple structure, and smaller size could reach about 100 thousand pcs. Certainly, it will also be 10,000 or even thousands pcs. Considerable difference.
However, there’s one basic rule:
The structure of the packaging bag material more simple, more simple process, lower cost, the smaller size, then the quantity will be higher.
Conversely, MOQ will be lower.
This can be applied to any industries. Such as a printing press, MOQ may be only 1 units, but the hex screw is 50,000 pcs plus.
Therefore, clients have to clear their own needs, understand the reasons for the supplier’s MOQ, In order to improve purchasing efficiency.
So, What factors affect the Packaging Bags MOQ?
MATERIAL & SIZE OF PACKAGING BAGS
Packaging Bag Material :
- Plastic Film (PP, PA, PE, PET, EVOH, EVA, PT, etc)
- Paper (Kraft, Rice paper, etc)
- Aluminum Foil (AL, MPET, MCPP, etc)
Could be recombination by increasing the number of laminated film, to achieve more stringent packaging requirements, while reducing MOQ.
For example the Flat Bottom Bag.
The material of kraft paper – foil inline (3~4 layers), MOQ is 20,000 pcs.
but the material of BOPP(single layer), MOQ maybe up to 100,000 pcs.
The reason is that the printing process of kraft with foil inline material is complex and cost higher, but there’s profit.
If the BOPP material packaging bag quantity is too low (20,000 pcs), then the supplier will be unable to complete the production because there’s no profit.
Packaging Bag Size:
In general, the minimum amount of packaging a supplier makes is ONE roll laminated film of 6000 meters long.
In other words, the same length of the packaging laminated film material for production packaging bags, get the small bags more, large bags will be less.
CUSTOMIZED PRINTING OR INVENTORY
If the supplier has enough inventory, and the size , thickness, material & style of the bags are in conformity with the client needs, there’s no packaging bags MOQ problem. Clients need to be concerned more about the exact quantity, transport method and freight cost.
Packaging bag customization, due to material, size and printing demand. If you can not meet the MOQ corresponding standard, the supplier is unable to complete the production without profit.
Flexography printing process, because of its small and flexible machine features, more suitable for small batch packaging bag printing. In general, it’s no problem for thousands MOQ.
But the gravure printing process, large machine, It’s difficult to carry out the production of 10,000 pcs or less, so the MOQ is 20,000~30,000 or more pcs.
If the order quantity small, can the supplier really not be able to do it?
There are many factors that determine whether suppliers are willing to accept small quantities.
- Trust issues with clients (trust is bidirectional),
- Supplier production schedule (if enough production work now, there is no effort to cope with a small amount of orders)
- Cost (the supplier is not enough profit)
- Communicate with the client difficult (some clients want to custom print, but cannot accept the plate charges and shipping cost is higher than the packaging bags ) etc.
When your quantity of the order is lower than that expected by the supplier.
What will your supplier do?
Face up and try to finish it? Cooperate with each other? Or choose avoid it altogether?
That’s really important than packaging bags MOQ.
