The White Company partners Quadient for automated packaging

The White Company has partnered with Quadient for automated packaging solutions as its e-commerce sales grow.

The homeware retailer will adopt Quadient’s CVP Everest auto-boxing system at its multichannel fulfilment centre in Northampton.

The packaging system, which automatically fits to size of product, is capable of tailor making over 1,100 e-commerce packages per hour. It measures, constructs, seals and labels each parcel – reducing package volumes by up to half, cutting cardboard usage by a fifth and eliminating the need for void fill.

The investment in the CVP Everest, the first commercial installation of this technology since its launch in January 2020, will also support The White Company's plan to reduce the environmental impact of its distribution centre and wider fulfilment and delivery operation.

Rob Gascoigne, continuous improvement manager at The White Company, said: “To meet the uplift in e-commerce order volumes and to efficiently comply with new health and safety requirements brought on by the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, we decided to invest in an automated packaging technology that could not only deliver speed, but importantly, would present a sustainable packaging solution for the future.”
