Case Study - E-commerce business see significant improvements following Easypack installation
Thursday, 29 March 2018
Buysend.com is a successful e-commerce business based in Essex. They sell a wide variety of consumer goods via their e-commerce website, buysend.com. Their stock ranges from automotive and electrical products through to health and beauty items.
Since 2008, the company has gained significant success through eBay, Amazon and their own website sales. Over 1,300 items are despatched per day, which at peak times can rise to over 2,000 items. Stocking over 50,000 product lines, all items are distributed through two main warehouses and despatched from one packing centre.
This rapid growth meant that they had to start to reconsider their packaging operations in order to be more efficient and meet increasing demand.
The solution was to incorporate Easypack’s Packstation™ and Packsolo™ systems into their despatch area which led to an immediate improvement in packing efficiency, user comfort and despatch times.
Integrated Packing for Fast Despatch
The Packsolo™ system was chosen because of its compact design and high-speed paper output. In addition to producing robust, 100% recycled, 100% recyclable and 100% biodegradable paper, Packsolo™ can be easily integrated into any packing area. Buysend.com chose to integrate their systems with their new Packstations, as it virtually delivers the paper straight into the box.
Total Packing Efficiency and Comfort
Packstation™ is a totally flexible and ergonomic packing bench that is multi-functional. It allows packers to access a range of accessories and packing medium with ease. Buysend.com incorporated a number of accessories into their Packstation’s including digital display monitors, and their automatic labelling and auto-taping systems. This made the whole packing process far quicker, safer and more comfortable for their busy packing team.
Buysend.com have demonstrated what it takes to grow a successful e-commerce business today. By adapting and using highly efficient technology, they not only improved their overall packaging efficiency, they improved the safety and comfort of their employees too.
