Don’t lose a fortune in wasted space

Just a few inches of extra empty space in your packaging can have a huge impact on your bottom line. The average shipping box is 40-60% empty space. By creating custom boxes with an On Demand Packaging® solution, Packsize customers solve this problem and report immediate cost savings.

Save with right-sized packaging

Use less void fill

By eliminating or reducing filler material needed to protect the product during shipment, we’re able to eliminate about $0.50 of packaging materials per box. When shipping hundreds of boxes, these savings will add up fast. What’s more, void filler is usually the most unsustainable part of your package—it’s often made from plastics that don’t naturally decompose and aren’t easily recycled.

Save on DIM charges

Nowadays, most shippers treat a box that’s the size of one cubic foot the same as a box that weighs 10 pounds. Every inch of space saves you money when it comes to dimensional weight charges.

Save more than just money

Optimize warehouse space

Free-up valuable warehouse space by eliminating your box inventory.

Improve supply chain

Smaller boxes mean more boxes per truck, which drives a ripple effect throughout the entire supply chain, and saves on CO2.

Increase sustainability

Right-sized packaging is eco-friendly packaging.

Driven to provide a right-sized package for every order

With a large number of SKUs and ever-growing need for different box sizes, the Parts Unlimited team knew it was time to implement a flexible, eco-friendly packaging solution to reduce shipping charges, corrugated usage, and void fill.

Since implementing the On Demand Packaging® system, Parts Unlimited reduced box size by 40% and void fill usage by 60%.
