Abstract [en]

In the Research program “Improving corrugated board performance” at RISE several case studies on transport packaging in e-commerce were conducted. Field tests with ecommerce packages with mixed products and laboratory tests with the same products were compared. Laboratory transport tests have been carried out using the standard ISTA 6 Amazon – Over boxing. The field study was carried out through sending packages between two cities in Sweden. All packaging were equipped with field data recorders during each trial, which captured the data relevant to compare transport simulation and the real environment during the e-commerce logistics. A comparison between Amazon testing and reality was made. Similarities between the field studies and laboratory tests are identified. When comparing the results with this and other studies, it was concluded that the ISTA 6 Amazon Ship-in-own-container (SIOC) and ISTA 6 Amazon Over boxing (OB) are demanding tests and this especially concerning the drop tests.

Abstract [en]

The grocery retail industry is striving with low margins and an ever-increasing competition from e-commerce applications. Therefore, as a mean to save time, money andincrease the efficiency in the supply chain, perforated shelf-ready packages (SRP) hassince a long time been used. However, there is also problems related to this perforation; it weakens the transport packaging and makes it more sensitive to damage onthe way to the shelf. The current guidelines are focused on appearance of the box onthe shelf, e.g. how much of the product is seen and evenness of perforate edge, andnot on the mechanical properties of the box.Today there exist much knowledge about perforations inhouse in the die cutting industry. This knowledge is however unattainable for outsiders. Further the questionarises about how well founded said knowledge is. The scientific literature offers littleinformation about the basics of perforation and how it affects the mechanical properties of the board and box. This study is an attempt to build knowledge, useful toconverters and industrial users, in a systematic way.In this paper several different perforations patterns have been studied from a mechanical point of view. The experiments were designed to answer some basic questionsabout how different nick lengths and distances affects the strength of the perforatione.g. at different cut/uncut ratios. Among methods studied were tensile testing, bending stiffness, compression testing and edge compression test. The different methodswere compared regarding sensitivity to discriminate between different perforationpatterns and give a useful classification of the perforation.

Abstract [en]

Requirements for dangerous goods packaging are well known, whatever version are used. The testing circumstances are strictly defined for each transportation method (road, rail, air, sea). But nowadays it is becoming a practice that courier express operators transport dangerous goods as single package. This parcel delivery method means a higher risk for all kind of logistics participants. By this service the packages are delivered fast, but handled more roughly than in comparison to LTL (less than truckload) or FTL (full truck load). Naturally, the parcel delivery sector uses its own suitability testing methods, which are also well defined. These procedures are coming from various standards such as ASTM, ISTA or corporate (FedEx) standards.This paper compares the most common parcel delivery testing conditions concerning the drop test requirements of DGR (Dangerous Goods Regulation) using packaging such as paper bag, corrugated fibreboard box, steel drum and plastic jerrycan, respectively. Then the test results were analyzed to present the differences.

Abstract [en]

The exporting industry has problems finding the right transport packaging materials and solutions for export to different markets. Many different standards exist for different purposes. On the other hand, there are missing standards in some cases, e.g. high humidity and creep. Also, each industry branch has different requirements and demands. From the industry’s point of view there is a wish to specify how the packages will be used and which environmental hazards they have to withstand. Performance of the box is important, not the specific paper properties, even if they affect the performance.This presentation will clarify some of the problems the users of corrugated packaging have and ways to improve the situation in an effort for "real optimized" transport packaging. Different test methods for corrugated will be presented and compared with the industries needs on transport packaging. Test methods will be covered at paper level, board level and box level.
