Sustainable Packaging in Fulfillment Centers

Sustainability practices are crucial in protecting the planet and preserving resources for future generations. For this reason, more and more e-commerce businesses are shifting to sustainable packaging. As sustainability becomes a part of company missions, fulfillment centers must also keep up with changes.

Effective Eco-Friendly Fulfillment Center Strategies

The order fulfillment process impacts supply chain management, influencing operational efficiency and customer satisfaction. More than that, it affects the environment — and the planet. Contribute to a more sustainable future with the following practices:

  • Optimize inventory management: There are different strategies to improve inventory levels. Find the most suitable strategy that adapts to your business needs and the evolving business environment. One widely used method is Just-in-Time, which helps limit storage space, minimize waste and reduce excess stock.
  • Kit multiple orders for a single shipment: Kitting is an efficient technique that groups individual orders into one shipment. With one unique SKU, kitting reduces packaging resources, fulfillment costs and errors.
  • Focus on sustainability packaging: Eco-friendly packaging solutions vary in materials, designs and dimensions. Some use bioplastics, reusable packaging, biodegradable airbags and molded fibers to lower carbon footprint.
  • Localize fulfillment centers: Reduce shipping distance and carbon emissions by creating local fulfillment centers.
  • Shift toward green practices: From using renewable energy sources to implementing recycling programs, there are several ways to help the environment.
