DS Smith - Export Automotive Glass Shipper
Entrant's statement: My design allows twice the amount of glass to be packed into the same space, using half the amount of packaging, compared to the previous solution and improved access.
Judges' comments: The judges were very impressed with the engineering, care and attention to detail of this transit packaging solution. Clearly the packaging has delivered against a tough brief. For a mainly cardboard packaging solution to work the strength and integrity of the pack was the key. DSSmith have delivered this perfectly and a flow packaging solution which I am sure will benefit the client with improved commercial and return on investment. The fit of the glass panels and the cushioning around the high value product has been executed to perfection and it would take some great abuse or an unusual incident for the product to be damaged. Overall a brilliant example of how to design, develop, specify and manufacture quality transit packaging.
