Title: Why Major Brands Are Making Their Packaging Reactive

Description:

Most fulfillment operations have carton and mailer sizes on hand that were selected years ago based on a simple manual analysis. On top of that, they’re packed with tribal knowledge or basic WMS cartonization. This hasn’t been a glaring issue, until now. Conventional wisdom always indicated in order to minimize costs, your parcel shipments should simply be packed in the smallest box, with every ounce of air eliminated (besides necessary protective material). While that's an admirable goal, it's not nearly enough anymore. Parcel packing and packaging are inextricably linked to labor and materials costs, customer experience, and the convoluted incentives hidden in your negotiated rate tables. To truly minimize costs, those factors must be incorporated into every packing decision, as well as the packaging itself.
