The Pain of Packing in an E-Commerce World

With ecommerce volume growing quickly, it is shaping how businesses sell their products, and forcing changes onto the warehouse. While picking seems to get the attention when it comes to omni-channel efficiency, packing is an overlooked area when small changes could make a world of difference. Most current systems cannot accommodate the rapid rate of changes and personalization in packing from value-added services, to flash sales to temperature control. And that’s just thinking from a retail apparel perspective. What if we add to the mix hazmat items, combustibles, drugs or novelties? Personalizing packing systems can create incredible efficiencies in the fast-paced world of e-commerce and beyond.
