Cartonization is the process of evaluating the size, shape, and weight of every item to be shipped in order to determine the optimal packaging option. That includes a properly sized “carton” (cardboard box, or container) for a product, as well as how many and which products should go into it. When combined with a Packsize automated packaging machine (like the X5), cartonization means having a perfectly sized box for each order that is shipped.
Cartonization can help you save money on shipping costs by minimizing the cubic volume and weight of your packages, which are the main factors that determine your shipping rates. It can also help you reduce waste and your environmental impact by using less packaging materials and shipping less air. Additionally, cartonization can increase your productivity and customer satisfaction by speeding up the packing process and ensuring that your products are packed securely and arrive undamaged.
PackNet Cloud Cube is an online cartonization solution that uses advanced algorithms to analyze the dimensions and weight of each item in the order. It then pairs the smallest possible box with the order. The box could be one from your set inventory, or it could be a right sized box made to order from a Packsize machine.
The cartonization software business rules engine is configurable and can split orders into shipment that your business requires.
