E-commerce is developing fast! It increases the complexity of the supply chain from the moment of order to last-mile delivery. The order’s handling and delivery has a major impact on the consumer’s experience.

Creating packaging design that really stands out is the beer revolutionaries Omnipollo experts in.
In our latest case with the label “Covered in puppies” one of the most eye-catching effect is used, the Holographic. With a highly refined material, all the colors of the rainbow are refracted and give a unique look to the product in every angle and lighting.
Digital printing technology is driving graphical developments and there is also greater flexibility in the ability to change the layout, with bigger creative opportunities.
Which is why the brand must be nurtured, invested in and strengthened. Packaging solutions bearing the company’s logotype are
an excellent way of continuing to build brand.
Like one of
our customers, Timarco AB, with a vision to offer a broad, high quality
brand portfolio with the deepest range and best possible service in lingerie
online, are doing.
Gustaf Carlsten, Account Manager, has been working with Timarco and going through their packaging needs. Together with our Construction & Design team, he came up with a new, branded box with several advantages: “It is easy to fold up and work with. The strip is easy to get off because it comes out a bit, and the glue is incredibly good! The side tabs make it impossible to get into the box when it is closed. And with the company brand on, it is a hit! “
Boxon works continuously to develop products
with a reduced environmental impact.
By climate-compensating your packaging purchases, you as a customer can make a significant contribution, affecting directly the carbon footprint of your company. Today we offer this service for our Bulk Handling products, giving you the opportunity to purchase climate neutral Big Bags. We were actually the first FIBC manufacturer with this highly environmentally friendly service.
To be able to offer this service, we have calculated the carbon footprint of our Big Bags with the help of the non-profit organization MyClimate. All stages of the value chain were taken into account: Including raw materials, operational waste and transportation. The calculation method of MyClimate is based on internationally recognized standards (ISO 14040/44, ISO 14067, PAS 2050, GHG Product Life Cycle Standard). Based on this product carbon footprint, we can optionally add the climate compensation to all orders within the Big Bag range. In this context, Boxon supports a climate protection project in Tanzania, where the corresponding CO2 emissions are compensated.
We are glad to notice that our customers appreciate our sustainability projects that we have done and keep doing. Together with our customers, we have compensated for more than 340 tons of CO2 since last year. Some customers use the service for each order.
For example, our customer Georg Plange (a leading flour producer) has already compensated CO2 several times since the project started. You can read more about this on their website (German):
Understanding the customer’s needs and matching our offer is a part of our daily lives. We analyze the outside world, inspire to new ideas and quickly design innovative solutions that continuously secure the packaging flow, from order to delivery.
Some of our customers are working in a global, complex logistic world, and are looking for partners within packaging that can provide efficient solutions. Boxon is that partner! The challenge is to synchronize all activities and make sure we utilize all our knowledge within the company the absolutely best way. Therefore, we have gathered our forces this week, from China, Germany, France and the Nordics, for a weekly workshop. This will also include customer visits to deepen our knowhow and understanding for the Automotive business.
As our mission declares: We are an innovative business partner who will turn the packaging concept into a strategic value creator.

Question marks about the use of plastic are creating a demand for alternatives. Boxon is offering alternatives in many different materials. Our greener alternatives to ordinary plastic comprise both green PE and compostable material.
LDPE stands for low-density polythene and has a low density, thus giving it shape ability properties. This makes the LDPE alternative ideal for products such as food bags, stretch film, milk carton linings, etc. LDPE is recyclable.
Has the same properties as LDPE and an identical appearance. The only difference is that it is made from renewable resources. In Boxon’s case, from sugar cane. Green PE is 100% CO2 neutral and can be recycled back into PE or incinerated to form biofuel. Owing to its composition, no further carbon dioxide is emitted to the atmosphere during incineration. The only CO2 escaping to the atmosphere is that which was once bound to the sugar cane.
Compostable material has similar properties to LDPE and Green PE and is made from renewable material. It can be made from many different sources, such as sugar cane, maize, etc. As it is not a plastic, it cannot be recycled together with plastic. Instead of recycling, it can be composted. Either through industrial composting or by composting at home.
