Packaging for e-commerce –
Join with us to conquer online trading

From protecting goods and the environment, to transport and storage, right through to marketing and advertising – e-commerce depends heavily on packaging and its numerous features. What once served as simply a means of shipment and as protective casing, is now an important marketing tool.

Straightforward handling is a key requirement in online commerce – both during packing by dispatch staff and when the customer opens up the package. The packaging is the only physical contact between the consumer and the product or online retailer. Unboxing should therefore also be designed to be a positive experience. Sustainable packaging material such as cardboard and an attractive printed design help to inspire and engage e-commerce customers.

The perfect packaging - sustainable, stable, attractive

The perfect packaging fits perfectly, is sustainable and is used effectively as a marketing tool. Paper-based packaging can combine these requirements in a unique way. The natural product corrugated and solid board is made from renewable raw materials and has been a successful circular product for many years. Cardboard packages can be fully recycled - their recycling rate in Germany is almost 100 percent. They are also highly customizable - both in terms of packaging size and the design of the inside and outside for marketing purposes.

Attractive unboxing increases brand value

The unboxing experience is increasingly becoming a decisive competitive factor: unboxing videos are increasingly going viral on social media because people feel the need to share positive experiences. Online retailers are therefore placing greater emphasis on designing their packaging attractively - both on the outside and inside. If the packaging is still intact, easy to open and the inside contains a goodie, a welcome or thank you card, the unboxing surprise is a perfect success.

  • intelligent intralogistics solutions such as our Dumpholder for small and medium-sized parcels

The ideal packaging size - Stop Sending Air

The more complex the goods to be packaged, the more challenging it is to find the perfect solution. Mixed shopping baskets with products in different sizes and shapes, for example, cause problems. The same applies to large, bulky goods, such as those in the furniture industry. Endless corrugated cardboard or foldable cartons make it possible to pack such goods and baskets of goods according to size and requirements.

The basis for the development of customized packaging is the evaluation of a retailer's exact requirements based on its products, their dimensions and shipping frequencies. Start-ups such as our Swedish partner company Skrym offer software solutions that can be used to analyze the logistics processes of online retailers based on existing data and artificial intelligence - from ordering to packaging processes to delivery.
