LIVINGPACKETS: A SMART PACK FOR E-COMMERCE
LivingPackets, a next-generation packaging solutions start-up, has launched "LivingPackets THE BOX," a revolutionary, sustainable and trackable shipping box which generates almost zero packaging waste. THE BOX targets the € 3,000 billion eCommerce market which is growing at more than 20% a year.
Reusable up to 1,000 times, the smart box holds contents up to 5kg. It features real-time environmental monitoring (location, temperature, humidity, shocks, opening), as well as an integrated camera for remote viewing of the contents. An automatic holding system eliminates filling materials such as bubble-wrap which requires hundred of years to decompose in landfills. THE BOX also integrates an electronic address display, making all packaging stickers obsolete while simplifying forward and reverse logistics. All these features are protected by global patents.
“In addition to a massive reduction in cardboard and plastic waste, THE BOX can save merchants and logistics companies significant costs - up to ten times less as compared with one-way packaging,” says Alex Cotte, CEO of LivingPackets Group.
"The Box is a result of more than three years of arduous R&D work of LivingPackets, a European-based start-up whose mission is to eliminate the need for environmentally harmful packing while lowering costs and improving the online shopping experience of millions of people. Whilst the original vision of LivingPackets aimed at creating a carry-on package for travelers, it became clear that such an idea would require complex logistics. The LivingPackets team turned this obstacle into opportunity when, using the same technology, created instead THE BOX, a sustainable, smart packaging solution for e-Commerce."
