Transportation and supply chain management company XPO Logistics will be the first to bring this packaging technology to market in the logistics industry, Sealed Air says. XPO is deploying StealthWrap in several distribution centers where it fulfills and ships e-commerce orders for customers.
StealthWrap is engineered to provide security and protection while eliminating the need for extra shipping cartons and packing materials, Sealed Air says. When applied, StealthWrap shrinks and adheres to the dimensions of the product, obscures any markings or identification of the product inside and provides a damage-resistant covering.
“Consumers have become accustomed to receiving a box within a box within a box, and while the material waste and inefficiency of that kind of packaging method is evident, it has long been the only method available to provide adequate protection for the manufactured item in its original packaging,” said Kenneth Chrisman, president of Sealed Air’s product care division. “StealthWrap can truly eliminate a significant amount of corrugated cartons from the global supply chain, bringing unprecedented simplicity, sustainability and cost efficiency to retailers, large-scale fulfillment operations and third-party logistics providers.”
