With the improvement of the national economic level, the rapid development of my country's e-commerce, especially the explosive growth of online shopping. Especially when "Chinese New Year in place" is advocated, many people choose to buy a New Year's gift and send it home, so as to wish and miss their family members, and logistics and packaging play an important role in this process.
Packaging plays an important role in the protection and transportation of items. The annual volume of express parcels in China alone has reached a scale of tens of billions. This huge scale has also brought about a huge consumption of packaging materials such as cartons, plastic bags, tapes, and white foam.
According to the data of China Packaging Federation, in 2020, the operating income of enterprises above designated size in China's packaging industry will reach 1.01 trillion yuan. If calculated according to the average carbon intensity, the total emissions brought by the packaging industry is about 100 million tons, and the scale and carbon reduction space of the logistics packaging industry is huge.
Green packaging is the trend and the future.
In recent years, with the high attention paid to green development around the world, the Chinese government has proposed a major strategic decision to achieve carbon peaking by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060. Domestic enterprises have responded one after another. Its own innovative research and development promotes and deploys a comprehensive green transformation. In the packaging application process, more and more companies have begun to actively explore the application of "green packaging". Including carton recycling, waybill "downsizing", packaging optimization, green material research and development, etc., some express companies have accelerated the pace of "green transformation". Some people in the industry pointed out that green express delivery is a long-term project that requires the participation of all walks of life.
"Green packaging" refers to reducing energy waste and minimizing energy consumption in the process of product design, design and production. When the packaging is used up, it can be recycled and reused, or it can be degraded in a simple natural environment. Its essence is to minimize the price of its damage to the ecological environment. The main manifestations are: green packaging production raw materials, green packaging design, green packaging methods, green packaging operation process, green production process, green use and packaging recycling.
"Green packaging" is the trend and the new foothold of the core competitiveness of enterprises in the future.
How to control the packaging quality as an enterprise
Logistics packaging is an indispensable part of commodity circulation. Whether the packaging protects the product safely or not is directly related to the economic profit of the business. Due to the diversity of packaging and transportation methods, there are various uncertain factors in the transportation of goods. If the packaging is not qualified, the quality of the product will be affected, the cost of the enterprise will be increased, and the recycling of the packaging will be affected.
Therefore, it is necessary to pre-evaluate the impact of the package in various transportation environments, and conduct a series of tests on the packaged and transported products. Effective packaging and transportation testing can evaluate the product packaging in the process of storage, transportation, loading and unloading, handling, and distribution. The impact of various operation steps or environmental stress on the product can reduce the damage and loss of the product during the actual transportation process to ensure the value of the product; in addition, enterprises can continuously adjust their own packaging plans according to the test results, and accelerate the development of new packaging methods. Effectively reduce trial and error costs and improve efficiency
Now some platforms have requirements for product packaging. Taking the Amazon platform as an example, merchants who sell products on Amazon have to force packaging testing, otherwise they will face the problem of not being able to sell on the shelves.
