Packsize Spreads Earth-Friendly Shipping Practices

To suggest that e-commerce and the rise of online shopping are solely to blame when it comes to excess packaging waste would be incorrect. There are many moving parts. However, Amazon, which is front and center in this sector, is still making major strides to switch up the way it handles shipping. It’s called “Frustration-Free Packaging” (FFP) and the revamping of how products are shipped during their trip from the warehouse to the customer’s house is a game-changer. This topic is receiving a fair amount of media attention, too, which is encouraging to those in the packaging industry who are also looking to do the most good for Mother Earth and consumers alike. Packsize is among those operations and its goals— reduce waste, protect products, improve customer experience, and reduce the environmental impact of corrugated packaging—align nicely with what Amazon is rolling out.

Packaging Automation Keeps Companies In The Clear During Labor Shortages

Whether Millennials are in fact “lazy,” as far too many news pundits like to assume, is beyond the point. The real problem is that warehouses and distribution face a shortage of able-bodied workers. What’s more, those who fill up the applicant pool are either picky about where they work or ten not to apply for positions requiring manual labor. From the perspective of facility owners who need to keep conveyor belts filled with outbound items headed for delivery, not having the human hands to handle them is a problem—right? Not quite. As Packsize is quick to point out, automated machines creating the right-sized box out of environmentally-friendly packaging material is an all-around solution for those experiencing staffing and workflow problems. With the busy holiday season now on the horizon, there’s no time like the present to shift attention to automation rather than scurrying to find temporary workers who’ll only bridge the gap until Christmas is over.
