Packsize – Why Work For Us?


We are PASSIONATE about leading the global corrugated supply chain revolution.  We believe in having FUN while doing it and developing meaningful RELATIONSHIPS along the way.

Excessive packaging simply has a negative impact on the global environment.  Undue carbon emissions result from the manufacturing of unnecessary packaging materials, many of which are not reusable.  Larger than needed packages shipped via truck, rail, ship or plane waste valuable fuel resources.

However, insufficient packaging can also adversely impact genuine environmental efforts through product damage that requires a replacement be sent to the customer.  Studies show that right-sizing a box to best fit products reduces damages during shipping.

Packsize helps the business to identify the right-sized corrugated packaging for products, which in turn contributes to lower carbon emissions and fuel needs.  The right-sized package drives a ripple effect on storage, handling, and transportation efficiencies as it travels through every trading partner in the supply chain.

What is On Demand Packaging®?

Quite simply, On Demand Packaging® is a revolutionary packaging system that lets companies produce the right-sized box exactly when they need it.  It removes any worry and cost associated with paying too much for box inventory, void filler, inefficient use of warehouse space, and many other packaging-related problems.  In essence, On Demand Packaging® is the latest evolution in lean manufacturing.

Packsize On Demand Packaging® improves the old "store and retrieve" packaging process by placing a corrugated converting machine with a very small footprint together with a stack of corrugated material directly on the pack line.  This gives workers the ability to instantly create a box that perfectly matches the product that is to be packaged and shipped.

By more intelligently managing corrugated material, companies can save on average 35% in total packaging costs, limit the quantity of damaged items, and reduce their packaging's overall environmental impact on the planet.

Packsize Makes it Easy

It's not always easy to modify established supply chain processes.  However, with Packsize On Demand Packaging®, there is no upfront capital requirement or disruption to existing packaging capabilities. Additionally, Packsize engineers provide box design expertise and yield analysis improvement recommendations as well as deliver ongoing technical support and maintenance.  Contact us today to get a free box analysis and to find out how much On Demand Packaging® can save your company.

Packsize Statement on Sustainability

Packsize recognizes its role and responsibility in protecting and improving the state of the environment for future generations.

That's why Packsize is committed to smarter packaging for a healthier planet. Smarter packaging means less material needed to ship consumer goods via dimensionally optimized delivery services that use less fuel, reducing the overall carbon footprint of this process. By focusing on the use of resources through minimization, reuse, and renewal, we can help build a regenerative community that increases resource productivity and improves product design, while earning the reciprocal benefit of greater customer satisfaction.

In essence, what’s good for the planet is also good for the company—ours and yours.

Renewable Resources

All packsize z-Fold™ is made from responsibly managed, renewable resources, and is supplied by certified fiber sourcing programs such as Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI) and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

According to SFI, the forest products industry plants 1.7 million new trees every day, contributing to the long-term viability of North American forests, preserving wildlife habitats, sequestering carbon dioxide and offsetting greenhouse gas emissions.

Renewable Energy Sources

Packsize powers its headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah and its factory in Enköping, Sweden with renewable energy sources, including wind, water, and solar, as well as nuclear generation in Sweden.

PackLab in Salt Lake City, an On Demand Packaging® demonstration center, uses a solar panel system that generates 31,110 watts of electricity. Through a net metering agreement with Rocky Mountain Power, any surplus energy produced will be placed into the city’s energy grid.

Packsize discourages the use of non-renewable resources in its daily operation and advocates the reduction, re-use, and recycling of all paper, plastic, and aluminum material across the entire organization.

Social Contribution

Packsize operates an expanding fleet of alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles to reduce emissions.

When Packsize engineers, service technicians, and area sales managers visit a customer’s facility, they produce 85 percent fewer smog forming emissions than the average visitor.

Packsize encourages U.S. consumers to gain awareness of sustainability, resource use, and green packaging initiatives at www.packsize.com/green. Visit today to learn how smarter packaging can save the world!
