Packaging automation is perfect when you have a fast-paced packaging operation and are shipping items of different shapes and sizes at high volumes. For example, with an e-commerce business, there's an emphasis on fast turnaround times. Quick, efficient packaging helps you meet those targets, keep your customers happy and avoid backlogs in your despatch area. Automated packaging can also give staff members more time to complete other activities.
Use less packaging materials
Using an automated system ensures products are packed to a consistently high quality, reducing the need to replace items or waste incorrect or poor packaging. Our automatic packing machines also eliminate the need for void-fill by creating right-sized packaging.
There are many automated packaging solutions designed to speed up the packaging process, freeing up workers to perform other tasks and in turn reducing costs. Machines are also designed to create right-sized packaging which allows you to save money on void fill materials and shipping costs.
Reducing carbon footprint
Investing in packaging automation will reduce your carbon footprint. Right-sized packaging is not only cheaper to ship, but it also allows you to fit more packages on a pallet or a delivery van, meaning fewer emissions produced from shipping. Waste is also reduced, as the machines are programmed to use 'just enough' material, compared to manual packing.
Packaging automation can save valuable space in your warehouse by eliminate the need to store bulky void fill material or excess packaging. By creating more space in your warehouse, you can improve pick/pack timings and on-site efficiency. The quick speed of the machines means products are sent out on time, which leads to fewer products waiting for shipping and reduces the space needed for delivery backlogs.
