There are various types of packaging used in the e-commerce industry.
Depending the nature of the product packed, the kind of packaging varies.
Two of the most commonly used sustainable packaging solutions for e-commerce business are as follows;
E-commerce is an industry with a wide range of products to pack.
Every package may be different.
Every fulfillment process will differ depending on the industry and size of organization.
Two important factors to keep in mind when it comes to E-commerce packaging are;
Most e-commerce packages are designed to give the end-customer a pleasant unboxing experience.
If the quality of the package is poor, it will directly affect the e-commerce brand image. Always make sure, the package unboxing experience is conveyed through simple and clear instructions and is seamlessly aligned with the aesthetics of the package design.
Every product packed in an e-commerce fulfillment centre may be different, therefore, at times it is important to understand the packing process at the fulfillment centre before suggesting the right package design.
In large fulfillment centers, the e-commerce company may use automated packing lines which are cut to size depending on the product packed. In such cases, as a converter, you need to ensure the material you provide runs seamlessly on their packing lines.
In other cases, standardize the e-commerce packages into a certain size range for easier classification.
Whichever the fulfillment packing style, one thing that remains common for e-commerce packaging converters is the high volume demand of the packaging material. This is a high productivity business, yet it is not only a productivity business. It is more.
Whatever your process of manufacturing e-commerce packaging, make sure your production process is lean and automated to make the project viable.
The strength of paper is often underestimated because of its lesser elasticity when compared to plastics.
However, there are different kinds of fibre based material available in the market of various strength levels. Depending on the type of fibers and the fibre structure developed during manufacturing, the strength of paper based material can vary. There are materials out there when used to make standard square bottom bags, can hold over 30kgs in weight.

Every e-commerce business is different. As a converter, if you want to bring more value to your e-commerce client, it is important to identify their pain points. A well established e-commerce fulfillment centre may have challenges with continuous material availability.
If the e-commerce fulfillment centre is focused on grocery and fresh food delivery, then you need to realize one thing more important than being the most competitive in pricing is to make sure your e-commerce packages are food safe.
For every e-commerce business, the pains and the gains are different. Knowing your client's business model is what will help you provide them with the package their clients need.
