Supply chain challenges have not subsided during an ongoing global pandemic approaching two years. As such, consumer behaviors and corporate sustainability commitments are reshaping the ways in which goods are packaged and transported. One of the greatest areas for improvement in terms of sustainability has to do with packaging and logistics, which remarkably affect every single product bought and sold.
P2 Packaging’s patented box design eliminates wasted space, collapses quickly, and can be reused multiple times. This means less boxes used for shipping, less space required store boxes between shipments, and less transporting of products required. Ultimately, this results in massive cost savings and a lessened impact on the environment.
Sustainability is traditionally understood as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs. However, newer generations of consumers are proving that online shopping is entirely changing how and where people are purchasing products and the flow of commerce. This is, in turn, impacting the overall sustainability of companies, and challenging many corporate environmental pledges.
The physical logistics of how packages are routed and delivered—either to consumers or other businesses—has not changed dramatically in decades. As attempts have been made to lessen waste, energy and labor in these endeavors, one of the most remarkable changes to these industries in recent years has come in terms of packaging products. P2 has simply reimagined this basic tool, and its real-life business applications has already saved loads of money while simultaneously reinvigorating the conversation regarding sustainability and the impact a box like this can exhibit.
Cost-cutting while simultaneously addressing sustainability expectations is an enormous step when considering packaging and logistics. One industry in particular has the most to gain from adopting packaging design such as P2’s is the automotive industry. With thousands upon thousands of parts packed and transported for every vehicle produced—some carmakers producing particular models by the millions—the cost savings for manufacturers ends up being remarkable. A current client of P2 has already saved nearly 10 million dollars in shipping costs over the last couple of years simply by switching to P2 products as a returnable—getting up to ten turns per container.
