What is kitting and assembly?


Kitting is the gathering of separate products into a single offering, and it is often done in batches. The goal of building kits is to have a ready-to-ship package for when a customer places an order. This helps to speed up the retail fulfillment process. 

Situations where kitting is required:

Subscription boxes

A subscription box is a collection of products bundled in a box and delivered to customers on a recurring basis. Customers who subscribe to receive your products at a specific time can get their products delivered in a subscription box instead of receiving each product individually.

Rainbow packs

Manufacturers may wish to combine, say, six different flavors of a beverage into a single kit and market it as a “rainbow pack.”

Gift with purchase

A “gift with purchase” (GWP) might be something like a small toiletry kit with a high-end perfume. If you own a store, you might want to consider this.


The process of organizing the separate products that comprise a kit is known as an “assembly.” The kit is ready to ship once it is assembled, so there is less hassle when a customer places an order for those products.

For example, hair care products (shampoo, conditioner, hair oil, cream, etc.) are grouped, packaged, and shipped as a single item. Kitting and assembly are most efficient when two or more products are required to complete the same order. This can help you save time and increase your profits.

Kitting and assembly services are often well suited for the following:

  • Product Testing
  • Cosmetics
  • Supplements
  • Electronics
  • Subscription Box Programs
  • Multi-Level Marketing Kits
  • Training Materials
  • Media Kits
  • Healthcare Enrollment Materials

Benefits of working with Rocket Packaging

Quicker Assembly

Businesses are always looking for ways to give their customers faster and more reliable shipping options.

Kitting can be sped up by doing it in bulk rather than repeating the same selection and packing processes with each new order. Using the bulk method makes things easier for you and your warehouse workers.

Rocket Packaging specializes in pick and pack, allowing you to gather, package, and ship products as a unit rather than paying for the picking and packaging of each item separately.

Lower Overhead

In addition to the direct costs of kitting—such as picking, grouping, packing, and selling—there are overhead costs to consider. Some of these costs might be to buy and integrate IT management systems, hire people, rent more storage space, or buy specialized equipment.

Rocket Packaging helps to manage your kitting and assembly, allowing you to save money on overhead. We have the expertise in kitting and assembly, as well as the necessary infrastructure. Outsourcing kitting and assembly will save you money compared to managing it in-house.

Volume Flexibility

Many e-commerce businesses experience seasonal swings in product demand, forcing them to search for ways to maximize their storage space, warehouse workers, and equipment. When demand rises, on the other hand, it may not be convenient or cost-effective to hire more employees or get more storage space.

Rocket packaging has the ability to anticipate unpredictability in market demand and the flexibility to scale up and down based on your needs. Working with us lets you deal with unexpected customer orders and turn seasonal risk into an opportunity.

Cost-effective Packaging

The cost of packaging is another consideration that determines whether you should outsource your kitting and assembly activities or manage them in-house. If you hire Rocket Packaging to run your kitting operations, you can save money on postal fees by using efficient and cost-effective packaging.

For example, instead of utilizing a conventional, fixed-sized box for frequently ordered kits, we can use a custom box to reduce the size and weight of your products. As a result, you’ll be able to save money on shipping. This is achievable because we stock packaging materials and custom boxes in bulk.

No Shipping Errors

When product demand increases, many businesses try to fill customer orders using existing resources. This leads to a slew of delivery errors and inaccuracies.

Rocket Packaging offers you access to our trained staff who are experienced in kitting and assembly processes. We also have the resources to track your orders in real-time, as well as the necessary infrastructure and streamlined processes to conduct order fulfillment tasks.
