3 Changes In Shipping Packaging

Shipment packaging must be designed to protect the product from the unexpected.

The intelligent packaging provides traceability, tracking and record keeping with supply chain from harvest and manufacture of food and packaging materials to point of sale.

With the advancement in technology such as nanotechnology, printed electronics along with easy availability of materials with high capacity. 

The COVID-19 pandemic drastically increased the demand for Ecommerce packaging and shipping solutions.

Effective shipment packaging relies as much on science and engineering as it does diligence and common sense. Matching the right box for the product and properly securing palletized shipments is crucial in the physically challenging environment of a less-than-truckload or parcel network.

The growing shift towards sustainable and eco-friendly packaging options has introduced fully recyclable packaging and stand-up pouches in a variety of designs. Along with offering environmental advantages, sustainable packaging can help companies improve their bottom line, eliminate unneeded manufacturing parts, improve safety on the production line, and minimize disposal costs.
