It’s imperative to modify how shoes are packaged for e-commerce to accommodate these peak times.

Our automated packaging solutions present numerous advantages for footwear, enabling you to meet the increasing demand. Furthermore, they reduce costs, offer an eco-friendly alternative, and enhance the customer experience. Our solutions boost the capability to efficiently package up to 1,100 boxes per hour, with precision-sized packaging securing the shoebox firmly in place.

This breakthrough paves the way for a fully automated warehousing solution, removing reliance on manual operators and operator errors.

Ship your footwear in a sustainable manner

Subjects such as climate change are increasingly resonating with consumers. Packing in an eco-friendly manner could therefore be attractive for consumers. The conventional method of shipping often involves excessive air within the package, which isn’t sustainable.

By tailoring the boxes to seamlessly fit around the shoebox, the shipping volume is reduced. Shoeboxes are ideally suited for this specific packaging method. This also diminishes the materials required for packaging. Utilising our automated packaging machines guarantees eco-friendly packing, benefitting both the business and the consumer.

Furthermore, our machinery helps to comply with forthcoming packaging regulations. By 2024, under the Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation (PPWR), the permissible air content in shipped packages will be restricted to a maximum.
