Among the presenters at the Smart Industry Forum held earlier this month in Copenhagen, Packsize International CEO Hanko Kiessner shared his company’s progress in helping organizations transform their packaging supply chains to take advantage of mass production efficiency. An established sustainable packaging industry leader, Packsize International offers right-sized packaging, on demand, for the corrugated marketplace.

“Hanko Kiessner made us aware that packaging is an essential part of Industry 4.0,” said Smart Industry Forum Founding Director Heinz Gassner. “Besides the impressive efficiency increase, the resulting cost savings and reduction of environmental impact, On Demand Packaging® from Packsize is boosting customer satisfaction. In the upcoming age of mass customization, On Demand Packaging is of highest relevance to the entire manufacturing industry.”

Through its strategic development of On Demand Packaging, Packsize has combined the precise technology, equipment, accessories, and services required to package and ship products via a dimensionally optimized and cost-effective, single-source solution. On Demand Packaging meets the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies–the packaging systems of the fourth industrial revolution’s “smart factories.”

“Much more than a stand-alone business strategy, On Demand Packaging squarely addresses the ‘one size fits all’ assumption of traditional corrugated box inventories by providing companies a lean packaging alternative that demonstrates mass-production efficiency and reliability,” said Kiessner. “We are also on the threshold of delivering full packaging digitalization and labor reductions that will further enrich supply chain and organizational capabilities for customers.”

Today, Packsize works closely with many of the world’s top brand manufacturers and distributors of consumer goods. Since 2002, Packsize customers have made tremendous strides in reducing and managing their environmental impact and risks through their use of Packsize’s custom corrugated box-making solution.

Packsize’s track record to date reflects a visionary alignment with the e-commerce sector and identification of the strength of the global corrugated economy, which is expected to grow to $269 billion by 2021, as recently cited by Smithers Pira in their report, The Future of Global Corrugated Packaging to 2021.
