WorldStar Award for innovative packaging
Published on 08.02.2024
After being honoured with the German Packaging Award 2023, Pohl-Scandia GmbH can now look forward to a WorldStar Award in the “E-Commerce” category. According to the jury, the innovative shipping packaging, which was developed by packaging specialist Karl Knauer for sister company Pohl-Scandia, scored points for its perfect fit for three different item sizes, its optimised handling, which enables goods to be picked much faster, and its sustainable, easily recyclable material.
Thanks to the clever design with integrated buffer zones, the packaging, which was specially developed for shipping handmade chocolates by “Pralinenbote”, provides perfect support and protection for three different item sizes. As the packaging consists of a single part and can easily be closed using adhesive strips, not only is storage effort reduced, but the commissioning process is also significantly faster and more efficient than before. The packaging is also impressive for the customer: It is made from 100% recycled fibres, has a high-quality, sustainable look and can be opened without scissors or a knife. All this makes for an unboxing experience that people will want to repeat.
“I am sure that this form of packaging will become established in the future, as it can be scaled as required and is therefore also of interest to other manufacturers or product groups,” says Jürgen D. Müller, Managing Director of Pohl-Scandia GmbH, with conviction.
Only packaging that has previously won an important national or regional award is eligible for the WorldStar Award. More information is available at: https://worldstar.org/winners_detail/3743/2024/
