When developing a new type of packaging, the transport of a fragile product, namely eggs, was taken as the starting point.
In addition to the packaging, a completely new online platform has also been developed that makes it even easier to order packages and prepare shipments. A number of free plug-ins are also available that enable the integration of both functionalities into existing webshop software like Magento, OpenCart, WooCommerce and SEOshop.
Online retailers can find detailed information on the new packaging at www.flespakket.nl. Retailers do not have to make any investments or maintain a large inventory of the new packaging. The system simply lets them know when inventory is running low and needs restocking.
Since the test results were so positive, PostNL has decided to offer free standard insurance for each use, providing a 100% guaranteed damage-free delivery.
