Non-paper delivery box uses internal sensors to keep shipments safe and an electronic ink label for continual reuse
Spotted: Smart, sustainable packaging company, LivingPackets, has partnered with ePaper technology business, E Ink, to create THE BOX — a connected delivery box made of proprietary material, designed for at least 1,000 shipments. When required, the pieces of THE BOX will be refurbished for an additional 1,000 uses. The paperless label makes addressing shipments quick and easy and allows businesses to accommodate last-minute amendments to delivery locations.
Created by LivingPackets, the proprietary recyclable, reusable material and design of THE BOX include sensors for temperature, weight and humidity, a camera and an alarm system. The company uses blockchain to track shipments, and THE BOX is available for both business and personal use. One design incorporates two sizes of packaging, and no additional materials such as bubble wrap or paper are required to keep products safe.
THE BOX was recognised in the 2020 CES (Consumer Electronics Show) Innovation Awards as an Honoree. LivingPackets is currently seeking Angel funding contributions for a 50 per cent return on investment and is encouraging both individuals and businesses to get involved.
