Packsize white paper reveals the evolution of the corrugated industry's customer-driven packaging model

SALT LAKE CITY, April 4, 2012 (PRNewswire) -Laying a historical foundation for the use and purpose of corrugated packaging over the past 100 years, Packsize International LLC today announced the release of its white paper titled "Taking the Corrugated Market from a Producer- to Customer-Driven Model."

Resulting from an extensive interview with Packsize CEO Hanko Kiessner, the white paper gives a historical overview of why corrugated gained mass acceptance as a leading multi-purpose shipping material and offers the viewpoint that while the delivery model has evolved due to various market forces, the corrugated box retains a "preferred" status ecologically speaking, and remains today an environmentally preferable method for product delivery.

Kiessner, whose father founded a corrugated business in Germany decades ago, introduced the right-sizing concept in 2002 through the inception of Packsize in the United States. His deep understanding of the industry's beginnings along with firsthand recognition of the need for cleaner production technologies and smarter resource use drove his desire to become a change factor for the corrugated industry.

Today, Packsize is pioneering On Demand PackagingTM, a technology-enabled corrugated packaging production process that creates a custom-sized box for every product. Markets that currently employ On Demand PackagingTMinclude: fulfillment, furniture, manufacturing, printing, windows and doors, and others engaged in mission critical packaging applications.

The white paper is publicly available on the Packsize web site.
