Five Ultra-Quick Packaging Solutions to Enhance Your E-commerce Order Fulfilment

Recent news of reduced lockdown restrictions across the UK has been met with almost universal optimism and renewed confidence in the retail sector’s bounce back, as businesses prepare for a return to in-store shopping and face-to-face commerce. But with over 50% of polled consumers signalling their preference for buying online over visiting their local bricks and mortar store, nailing the order fulfilment process to satisfy the growing demand for web shopping has never been so crucial.

So, to help you keep up with increased online sales and ensure you’re set up for continued growth in the e-commerce space, here are five ultra-quick and easy-to-use packaging solutions.

Boomerang Carton

The pains of receiving a long-awaited web purchase only to find an ill-suited or entirely incorrect product hit your doorstep is an all-too-familiar experience for many of us. Fortunately, though, we’re offsetting the operational pains of web-based order processing and simplifying the returns process with a nifty, tape-free solution, the Boomerang™ Rapid Return carton.

The box’s lightweight  dual peel and seal and tear strips mean it can be easily returned, with a crash-lock base and return label marker ensuring the process is both quick and headache-free.

Boxfill™ is an eco-friendly, scalable and speedy void fill system, requiring no investment in expensive machinery and no refilling or reloading, optimising efficiency in your workflow and reducing costs considerably.

Cutting layers of fill to pack out the carton can often be time-consuming and labour-intensive, causing bottlenecks in order processing. But this lightweight, plastic-free solution quickly dispenses recycled paper without pre-cut lengths, reducing both fill costs and waste considerably.

No manual scrunching is required; just remove the perorated panel, grab the pre-crumpled paper and pull to bring innovation into your business. Simple.
