Packsize announced the launch of its new X5 solution which is a fully-automated erected box system available for the e-commerce industry. The X5 solution creates ready-to-pack and right-sized erected boxes at faster speeds and was tested first by Crutchfield which is an electronics retailer. This solution reduces packaging waste that is caused by boxes being too oversized for a product. It also doesn't need filler like plastic air pillows for example and reduces shipping emissions. We have all received a package and thought that the box was too big for what was inside or that it didn't need so much filler.
"Unpredictable marketplace challenges over the last two years have compelled retailers and manufacturers to solve complex challenges around packaging technology, labor shortages, and throughput issues to meet consumer demand with sustainable solutions up and down the supply chain," said Rod Gallaway, CEO of Packsize. "Our innovations with the X5 solution alleviate these concerns while increasing efficiencies at scale and reducing the environmental impact of e-commerce. We continue to reimagine the future of packaging and create solutions at the nexus of technology, efficiency, and sustainability."
