Avoid provoking oversized box rage
11 October 2021
A RECENT survey highlighted that nearly 50% of people who shop online consider excessive packaging to be the most annoying thing about the internet retailing experience, says Quadient business development manager Jo Bradley.
“And yet, time and again goods are shipped in boxes that are way too big. This is not only bad for the environment but it costs the retailer money in raw material and transit costs.”
E-commerce companies who want to steer clear of provoking ‘oversized box rage’ among their customers can adopt packaging technology that creates fit-to-size boxes for every consignment.
“Typically, these machines – such as the CVP Impack and CVP Everest autopackers from Quadient – offer a 30% per cent saving in the use of cardboard plus the ability to completely eliminate the need for void filling materials,” says Jo.
Using 3D scanning technology, Quadient’s automated packaging systems size, construct, weigh and label each individual order – regardless of whether it is made up of individual or multiple items. With a cycle time as short as three seconds the CVP Everest can construct up to 1,100 fit-to-size boxes per hour.
