Packsize Delivers on E-commerce Demands While Meeting Consumers’ Sustainability Needs with Automated Solutions at MODEX 2022
Recent consumer study reveals cardboard is unquestionably America’s packaging of choice (84%) 1 for shipping
SALT LAKE CITY, March 28, 2022 – Packsize® today kicks off MODEX 2022 with its Right-sized Packaging on Demand® solutions that create a transformed customer experience. As e-commerce and manufacturing sectors embrace automation to address factors affecting their business, Packsize offers a range of advanced iQ Series and EM Series to semi-automated and fully automated X Series product lines. More specifically, the Packsize X Series represents the most advanced, flexible, and efficient automated packaging solutions through its best-in-class technology (in both hardware and software).
Due to new demands, today’s retailers are tasked with increasing throughput and cost savings, even as they achieve their sustainability goals; the entire range of Packsize solutions are integral to reducing packaging waste with oversized boxes and negating void-filler like plastic air pillows, improving the overall end-consumer’s experience.
“Consumer expectations for fast, efficient, and sustainable shipping are growing, and internet retail is not sustainable nor scalable without Packsize. Our X Series in particular highlights what is possible for the future of sustainable packaging and e-commerce,” said Hanko Kiessner, founder and executive chairman of Packsize. “We are continuing to chart a new path for retailers and our industry, reimagining what’s possible in packaging technology, sustainability, and efficiency.”
New consumer research by Packsize shows a continued demand for sustainability, affirming Packsize’s commitment to deliver a healthy planet through right-sized packaging, using less paper and creating less waste. Highlights include:
- 84% of consumers prefer their items shipped via a cardboard box, compared with plastic shipping envelopes and pouches (16%).
- 87% of consumers ordering online four times or more per week patronize brands demonstrating minimization of their carbon footprint.
- 45% of consumers believe it is important that companies they shop from show concern for reducing their pollution and waste, while another 38% see companies’ concern for improving their environmental sustainability as important.
Rod Gallaway, CEO of Packsize, added: “Consumers are demonstrating continued demand for sustainability in e-commerce, and 86% of frequent shoppers we surveyed believe that technology is a driving force to make this happen. As trusted advisors to our customers, we have continued to boldly innovate by developing new materials, systems, software, services, and solutions that unlock hidden potential in our customers’ supply chains: increasing the efficiency of their packaging process flows while further reducing their environmental impact.”
During MODEX, attendees will also have an opportunity to learn more about Packsize’s implementation with DICK’S Sporting Goods, Inc. (NYSE: DKS) to support the retailer’s e-commerce growth and sustainability initiatives and transform the way its customers experience packaging.
