Choosing the right packaging solution that fits the needs of a product and corresponding supply chain is important to any business. The right packaging can help make a product become a success and provide efficiencies in handling and distribution to its manufacturer.

AkyPak boxes strength and useful life can be further enhanced when re-enforced with a metal or an injection moulded top frame. The customised top-frame option allows nesting of boxes while in storage or while in transit for optimum transport, space utilisation and reduction of associated costs.
Further customisation can be obtained with the addition of interior rigid or textile dunnage for enhanced cushioning and protection of products; open and closed handles for handling efficiencies; RFID labels for access control; and more.
AkyPak boxes are reusable with long life-cycles and recyclable at the end of their useful life. DS Smith Plastics’ AkyPak reusable packaging is a leading product in several markets due to its superior qualities, levels of customisation and wide variety of applications.
