Online shop fulfilment: packing

Packing orders as part of online shop fulfilment is a delicate process. Active Ants does this with the utmost care and attention and uses sturdy and environmentally friendly packaging materials to ensure your products reach their final destination unharmed. Every product is packaged in a fitted packaging, thereby minimising the amount of wasted space and materials.

Automated and Personalised Packing

Every entrepreneur knows that you need branding to stand-out with your online store. However, shipping and storing your own branded packaging is not only expensive, but also environmentally unfriendly. Luckily, we have the perfect solution for you; Automated Personalised Sustainable Packaging. Our automated packing machines cut and fold the boxes to the smallest size possible so no unnecessary air is packed.

The advantages:

  • Minimise waste and empty space by using exactly the right amount of packaging materials.
  • Reduce space during transportation and create a smaller foot-print for your company.
  • No more customer complaints about parcels that are too big for the products.
  • No extra costs for storing your own branded packaging, because we create it for you.
  • SPEED! Our highly efficient automatic packaging machines can process up to 800 packages per hour.
  • We print the shipping address on the lid. Which saves millions of (plastic) labels each year.
  • Every box gets sealed off by a lid that can be personalised with a full colour print, completely to your liking. No more boring plain packaging but your own design printed on the box to tell your story.
  • A unique feature available for everyone!

Other packaging options

Do you still rather have a manually packed parcel? No problem:

  • Active Ants uses more than twenty different types of boxes, padded envelopes and shipping bags;
  • Products that are already securely packaged can be wrapped in white, black or transparent PE shrink film. This reduces the use of unnecessary outer packaging and is better for the environment;
  • Active Ants can also gift wrap products or follow specific packaging instructions;

FSC-certified packaging materials

We exclusively use FSC-certified packaging materials. The independent international FSC hallmark serves as an indication that the raw materials used for wood and paper products come from responsibly managed forests and that due care is given to the people who depend on these forests.
