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.
