Ames Case Study
American tool manufacturer, Ames, was challenged with efficiently packing a various mix of product sizes.
On demand packaging is a packing concept which is ideal for highly variable shipping environments. Instead of ordering premade boxes, Box On Demand equipment is installed in your facility, giving you the ability to make right-sized boxes for every order (both single and multiple item orders). Every Box On Demand system is tailored for your operation, including our patented MATRIX™ dimensioning platform and cartonization software which help you minimize excess costs, maximize your shipping yield and improve customer satisfaction.
Using the right sized box for your orders improves product protection and reduces the need for expensive void fill.
Excess shipping charges (such as dimensional weight) are reduced, more cartons fit onto each truck (reducing their carbon footprint), and customer satisfaction is improved from the reduced amount of waste they have to dispose of.
By reducing the size of boxes and the amount of void-fill used in your packages, a Box On Demand system reduces your costs and your carbon footprint.
