PACK & SEND joins call for logistics sector to reduce carbon footprint

PACK & SEND joins call for logistics sector to reduce carbon footprint

Unnecessary packaging causes 85,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions due to wasted journeys

PACK & SEND is urging online retailers to follow in its footsteps and reduce the £40m spent on unnecessary packaging every year.

This comes as packaging company DS Smith found too many shippers use cardboard boxes significantly bigger than the products inside them, leading to five million cubic metres of air getting shipped every year. This is the equivalent of 34,000 Olympic swimming pools. 

Nearly half of people are frustrated with packaging not being tailored to the product that needs shipping, with DS Smith particularly citing young people as those calling for a change.

As a logistics company that packages and ships any item regardless of size, shape and fragility, PACK & SEND recommends people turn to packaging specialists to overcome this problem.

Mike Ryan, CEO of PACK & SEND, says: “Clearly, there aren’t enough logistics companies that tailor packaging for individual products to reduce packaging and ultimately cut the number of trips carrying shipments. Consumers need to know that there are companies out there that are environmentally aware and use minimal materials yet get items from A to B safely.

“It’s fantastic to see people putting pressure on the logistics sector to minimise waste and journeys. I’m excited to see a future where people continue receiving items via delivery in an environmentally friendly way.”
