Its solutions can be personalized according to the most disparate target market requirements, from mass market to luxury and from POP display to a wide variety of industrial sectors, DS Smith cardboard packaging is optimized for each specific application, whether to adorn, protect or handle a product. As a complex and unique operator on the industrial panorama, DS Smith offers a “closed loop” service that includes the supply of materials and packaging but also corrugated cardboard recovery and reuse to achieve “zero waste” regimes.

Packaging made ad hoc for e-commerce. The rapid expansion of online sales are changing the nature and perception of corrugated cardboard packaging, which today must not only protect the products within and guarantee their efficient distribution, but also promote them in an appropriate fashion.

- preventing product damage, including at the most critical stages of the supply chain;
- optimizing speed and productivity of the packaging line;
- reducing the number of items in the warehouse;
- protecting against theft and tampering;
- offering a practical system for returns using the same resealable e-retail carton, with no damages or compromised parts.
