Packaging is usually bulky and usually requires a large amount of space to store. With space at a premium most companies would choose to devote more of their space to their own products and services and minimise their need to store packaging. Furthermore, the management of any inventory of products is hard work and time consuming and has many potential pitfalls.
High stocks tie up working capital and cost a lot to store whilst low stocks can lead to regular stock outages causing expensive production or distribution delays and ultimately dissatisfied customers.
The challenge has always been to find the right balance between lowest price, space used whilst ensuring you hold enough stock to minimise stock outs.
