International Paper (NYSE: IP) today announced the development of eCommerce Box Optimization Service, a new, space-saving packaging process. More commonly known as eBos™, the packaging cuts back on waste and the cost of freighting, while reducing e-commerce product damage.
This intelligent packaging solution revolutionizes the end-to-end boxing experience. It allows International Paper’s team of experts to analyze a customer’s shipment history and box utilization, then recommend an ideal box suite based on the customer’s product mix.
eBos™ has a multitude of benefits for shippers including reduced freight costs, improved warehouse efficiency and material savings. Consumers also appreciate the reduced likelihood of product damage and an enhanced unboxing experience.
The algorithm uses enhanced shipping data to identify where the client can be more efficient, and therefore, more sustainable. Total utilization, shipping costs, and square footage of corrugated material necessary are taken into consideration. IP designers and account managers then carefully review the new box suite dimensions and make any necessary modifications to suit the customer’s needs. The result is an intentional, intelligent, stylish packaging solution custom-tailored to fit the client’s product combination.
“Packaging should not be an afterthought,” said Katie Diley, Innovation Marketing Manager at International Paper. “Utilizing eBos™ shows customers that you care about providing an optimized unboxing experience through a more sustainable solution.”
Clients can expect a two-to-three-week turnaround time on solution recommendations. Learn more by clicking here to download a one-page summary and here to watch a video presentation on eBos™ Design and Packaging Solution.
