Case study

A powerful and sustainable packaging solution for PSA car batteries

We’ve replaced the high-maintenance, returnable metal containers previously used by the French car group PSA, to ship their batteries with a single-use, sustainable cardboard-wood packaging system.

Returnable container, more sustainable, with maximum protection

The new packaging consists of a triple channel cardboard body, anchored to a pallet using recyclable plastic clips and is stackable to create further efficiencies. Inside, the packaging space is optimised and batteries are secured using a bespoke system of fixings including metal hooks, wooden blocks or screws. Our solution, which can also be printed, provides maximum protection and eliminates the cost of returns, maintenance and cleaning.
