Packaging is one of the biggest priorities for many e-commerce players.
The global e-commerce market was worth $9.9 trillion in 2019 and is expected to grow at an annual rate of 14.7 percent from 2020 to 2027, according to Grand View Research.
With this growth, brands need to reconsider a critical element to their sales model: the customer experience.
In this article, I'll introduce you to 3 companies that have set the bar high in terms of innovation in e-commerce packaging.
1. Hipli's reusable packaging
Every year, about 550 million shipments. Why not innovate with reusable packages?
This is the idea of Hipl's founders: to revolutionize e-commerce by developing packaging that can be reused up to a hundred times thanks to a return system. And it's 25 kg of cardboard waste avoided.
2. Procos 2-in-1 shipping boxes
The German supplier is banking on the burgeoning e-commerce market to make up for lost sales of shopping bags. Here are its new solutions: Yoga and Yoga Light, two shipping boxes for luxury brands.
The two folding boxes come flat packed and are each composed of two parts: an outer corrugated shipping box and an inner box that can be customized (decoration, size and finish).
3. Charapack's reversible packaging
Charapack's reversible mail and gift packaging revolutionizes the way we order gifts online. It allows you to order a product, then after receiving it, reverse the regular packaging to reveal a beautiful printed gift box! It's simple!
This innovative design creates desirability by saving customers money on gift wrap AND it's environmentally friendly!
