Case study

Replacing plastic to protect a medical device

Challenge: 

Our customer, a global medical device company, wanted to replace their existing packaging for their fragile, high value equipment because it contained a plastic insert. However, the insert provided crucial protection during transit and any sustainable alternative needed to also comply with ISTA tests.

Results :

Our experts created a mono-material, corrugated solution for the box, the foldable insert and the transport box. It’s optimised for palletisation and can also be double-stacked. It offers to cut shipping costs and CO2e. The proposed packaging offers remarkable CO2 reduction compared with the previous solution.
