NL Project E-GLOBAL: Innovative concepts webshop logistics

16 December 2016

The University of Groningen, Fontys University and 20 private parties have united to carry out E-GLOBAL, a project which will develop innovative concepts for the logistics of online stores. The timeframe for the project is 2017-2019 and one of the themes is custom packaging and printing.
Online stores often choose to buy a limited number of box sizes in large quantities to take advantage of volume discounts. Products thus are often shipped in oversized boxes. There are no direct inhibitors for this because the shipping costs in Europe are based on weight. New packaging technologies enable packaging without air. Furthermore, there is a great need to use the shipping box as a marketing tool.
