Packaging Tips For eCommerce


The reliance on online shopping has grown and continues to grow exponentially year by year. With the issues that COVID-19 posed, many businesses have come to rely on their eCommerce platforms to bring in revenue and keep their brand afloat.

Distribution Warehouses must be prepared to pack and send an abundance of orders per day. No matter if you are running a small- or large-scale business, it is important to be prepared with the right packaging equipment and processes.

The right packaging helps your business stand out. The wrong choice can result in a range of issues, such as damaged products, to weakened brand connections, and customer retention.

So, without further ado, here are packaging tips for busy distribution warehouses:

Not everything fits perfectly in the box, so FROMM provides void fill solutions to fill the box without excess packaging.  The Air Smart Fill System takes an image of every carton and dispenses the exact amount of void fill to secure the product. No guess work, no waste and no risk or damage. 

Once added the box can be passed through an automatic taping system (paper or acrylic tape) to seal and close.  This allows one person deployed per packaging line to open, fill, and close the box.

Void Fill Solutions for every packaging type

FROMM has a wide range of void fill solutions to suit your packaging needs. We stock both the machines and the film used to create air cushions, air bubbles and protective pouches. FROMM Cushion Void Fill film is lightweight which will lower your shipping costs. FROMM Air Cushion Void Fill films combine reliable protection and with cost-saving features.

Environmentally friendly packaging

Consumers are becoming more environmentally conscious and are more likely to engage with companies that are eco-friendly. At FROMM Packaging, to accommodate different environments and cardboard box manufacturing methods, we offer our range in both hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesives. As a bubble wrap alternative, opt for Kraft Paper Void Fill, which is 100% recyclable, making it a sustainable packaging solution for your customers.

Having a productive packaging process is a must in order to keep up with demand. Choose packaging machines such as case sealer machines or wrapping machines for enhanced efficiency and to speed up the distribution process.
