Ameripen: Packaging for an e-commerce world

28 February 2017

A White Paper by Ameripen (‘Optimizing Packaging for an E-commerce World’) addresses the sustainability aspects of packaging for e-commerce. Packaging is needed to transport, protect, and deliver e-commerce purchases.
To optimize package design and materials, the needs and impacts of the entire system, including both the product and the package, must be understood and reflected. Also, new ways to stimulate open collaboration, including international standardization of dimensions and performance requirements are needed. Thus, optimizing packaging for e-commerce may very well look different than design for traditional retail, due to the different demands of the respective distribution chains.
