E-commerce packaging

E-commerce packaging – Unbox the potential

As online purchasing grows, so does the importance of packaging. Corrugated packaging material helps you meet the demand for impactful customer experiences – and find greener alternatives to meet today’s sustainability challenges.

Online retail is a game-changer across a huge variety of sectors. Traditional retailers and online players alike are fighting for consumers’ attention while striving to make the unboxing and returns processes as smooth and seamless as possible for busy buyers. E-commerce packaging design requires the careful selection of packaging materials, inserts and structural design features that can help to reduce damaged goods and food waste.

Cost-effective, impactful, sustainable corrugated packaging for e-commerce

Every day, corrugated packaging material from Stora Enso helps companies deliver more value to online consumers. It also plays a key role in the search for environmentally friendly packaging solutions. Our corrugated packaging material is renewable, recyclable and biodegradable. It is made from 100% renewable raw materials from sustainably managed forests and supply chains, certified under PFC® and PEFC™ chain of custody.
