Online organisations need to stay on top of ever-changing retail trends - and this includes e-commerce packaging trends. Rapid growth in the e-commerce sector has changed the face of consumer purchasing entirely. To compete successfully in this demanding industry, companies must ensure they offer a professional and efficient service from the very first click right through to delivery, meaning that new (and stringent) considerations come into play for e-commerce packaging. Where once the packaging agenda for the retail market focused primarily on shelf-ready aesthetic presentation, now it needs to serve other purposes too. As well as being accurately labelled, damage-resistant, and space-efficient for the carrier network, sustainable e-commerce packaging is increasingly important to customers. YPS understands the demands on your industry and has a plethora of machinery and material solutions ready to implement for e-commerce packaging success.
WHY CHOOSE YPS FOR BESPOKE E-COMMERCE PACKAGING?
VERSATILE E-COMMERCE PACKAGING SUPPLIES
From shrink films, to poly bags, to papers, we have a diverse range of e-commerce packaging supplies to suit your needs. With a wide array of specifications, gauges, widths, and colours, all e-commerce packaging can be supplied with or without custom printed designs. Our poly bags can be upgraded with several value-adding features including easy-tear perforation strips, resealable strips and hang holes.
BACK-UP AND SUPPORT
We provide unrivalled, award-winning back-up and support for all e-commerce packaging applications, with our in-house team of service engineers ready to assist seven days a week. A comprehensive service contract is included with the sale of any machine, unique in our industry. Furthermore, parts for our bagging machines are typically available for next day delivery to keep any downtime in your production to a minimum.
HAND-LOADED E-COMMERCE PACKAGING MACHINES
Our vertical polybagging units are designed for hand-loaded e-commerce packaging operations. Available as desktop units for warehouses with space limitations or portable standing machines with customisable frames, all solutions in this range promise significant improvements in output and efficiency compared to manual e-commerce packaging applications. The collection features the widest bagging unit currently available in the market, the Max Pro 24, which is capable of bagging two shoe boxes side-by-side.
CONVEYOR FED E-COMMERCE PACKAGING MACHINES
For increased automation, we can offer a number of premium horizontal bagging units from our German manufacturing partner Hugo Beck. These intermittent and continuous motion form, fill and seal machines achieve impressive speeds whilst minimising material usage with tight bag formations. Several machines in this collection can run paper, several utilise flexible plastic film, and our stunning Paper X Hybrid model can run both materials for total flexibility in your e-commerce packaging preferences.
Our high-quality machines combine labelling with bagging to make sure only the very best packaging for e-commerce always reaches its intended recipient. The vertical units employ integrated thermal-transfer printers for on-bag address and information printing in a choice of coloured ribbons. Meanwhile, our horizontal machines incorporate every step of the process from product detection and scanning, to print and apply labelling.
To comply with GDPR regulations, your bespoke e-commerce packaging process and address labelling must be synchronised perfectly to ensure that every item is documented correctly, whilst protecting sensitive name and address information. Our Hugo Beck machines employ a one-in-one-out-and-destroy data bank system with precision scanning that follows products from the infeed right through to the outfeed. Once scanned, products will only ever be labelled with the correct corresponding details.
As any online retailer knows, keeping returns to a minimum is a must. Goods that are damaged in transit translate to high levels of returns, eating into profit margins. They are costly, time-consuming to process, and can harm your customer satisfaction levels. To prevent returns, your e-commerce packaging must prevent water ingress and protect from dirt and impact damage. Our wide selection of robust e-commerce packaging supplies and industry-leading machines allows you to maximise your offering - not only with an attractive outer bag, but with tamper-evident, lightweight, and void-avoiding e-commerce packaging that reduces the risk of damage in transit. However, should the worst happen, many of our poly bag solutions can include reclosable and resealable strips. This enables them to be repurposed as a returns bag, preventing waste and simplifying the process for your customers.
Purchasing Manager, Online Retailer
“The main reason we wanted the machines was to cut down on our hours during the busy season. Now we can process 10 orders at a time by lining them up next to each other, scanning them and going through the process with an operator just dropping in the materials. The automated machines are 55 per cent faster than the manual process."
