By providing its customers with both an American and European shipping address, Bongo International simplifies the cross border shopping experience while reducing the costs associated with international transportation.

“With over 160,000 customers utilizing our service worldwide, we recognized the need to find a more efficient packaging system for international deliveries," said Bongo International CEO Craig Turnbull. Upon researching solutions, the company learned about the streamlined box manufacturing process and sophisticated packaging software technology provided by the Packsize On Demand Packaging® system.
“Implementing the Packsize system has provided more value to our customers by speeding up our shipment process, reducing the need for filler material, customizing each package size and reducing international shipping costs.”
Packsize On Demand Packaging® is able to centralize Bongo International’s packaging function by improving the old “store and retrieve” corrugated packaging process by placing a high speed package converting machine with a very small footprint together with a stack of corrugated material on the pack line. Product dimensions can be input manually, allowing workers the ability to instantly create a box that matches the product to be packaged and shipped.
