What is Smart Packaging?
The design of a package is vitally important for the entire supply chain. The design secures the goods during the distribution process and keeps costs low.
Packaging optimization means designing containers that use the least amount of materials for the least amount of money. This may include reducing weight and aspect ratios to allow more units per pallet, or adding lighter recyclable packaging materials to a shipment. The results of optimizing your package are cost savings, a lower carbon footprint and greater efficiency.
Smart packaging systems use active packaging sensors for real time tracking and intelligent designs to distribute packaged goods and ensure the freshness of food, medicine and other perishable items. This is particularly important for high value goods as well, like electronics and expensive parts.
With smart packaging and wireless technology, items are fully traceable, allowing customers to track, trace or even detect products that did not originate with their manufacturers, that were redirected during transportation, or were reintroduced to the supply chain after theft.
Smart packaging is on the cutting edge of how to ship valuable contents. For your most sensitive cargo, it represents the advantage you need.
