Distributors are starting to make tailor-made packages in order to limit the quantity of cardboard used. The hunt for waste, and filling materials, is on.
We have all, at least once, experienced the large cardboard stuffed with bubble wrap for a simple paperback, or almost. On average, each package carries 40% vacuum. And, while internet orders have jumped since the start of the pandemic, the hunt for waste is more relevant than ever.
According to the firm Smithers Pira, the annual growth rate of the e-packaging market will grow by 12% by 2025, reaching a turnover of 60 billion euros worldwide. Online distributors are therefore starting a real revolution, involving the reuse of packaging, the use of recycled cardboard for making packages, and even their outright elimination.
