Since 2015, Internet Fusion Group, an online retailer of sporting good equipment, has made it its mission to be one of the most sustainable warehouses in the UK. While the company is already 91 percent plastic-free, it wanted to do more. In August 2018, Internet Fusion installed two CVP Automated Packaging Solutions. These in-line auto-boxers measure, construct, tape, weigh and label every order in seven seconds while creating a custom-fit parcel and only use one operator.
In less than a year with the CVPs in use, Internet Fusion has already seen the benefits, including:
- Saving over 11,000 cubic meters (39,000 cubic feet) of corrugate annually
- Reducing 92 truckloads a year due to the decrease in dimensional shipping volume
- Eliminating void fill for 80 percent of its products
