Savoye, one of the world’s leading automated warehouse solution providers, has launched E-Jivaro – a new packaging product aimed at the e-commerce market. Based on Savoye’s hugely successful Jivaro packaging machine, E-Jivaro offers companies greater flexibility with its "letterbox format" designed for distributing smaller single products such as books and DVDs.
The e-commerce marketplace has very specific packaging constraints due to the diverse products, parcel sizes, delivery deadlines and required security. Designed to automatically adapt itself to the dimensions of the ordered product, E-Jivaro is able to consistently provide secure packaging with no wasted space or costly filling materials for parcels that are greater than 30 mm in height. E-Jivaro is capable of delivering a throughput of between 13 to 16 cycles per minute, with the possibility of putting the dispatch address on automatically during lidding.
E- Jivaro offers companies a lighter, more flexible cardboard structure as an alternative to the inconsistent boxes and the "bubble-pack" envelopes that are usually used within this sector. Shoppers also benefit from the smaller, more secure "letterbox format" packaging that can be easily opened on receipt via a tear-off strip. It also facilitates delivery via the letterbox, reducing the instances of personal delivery, which is more expensive and time consuming.
Martin Elliott, Savoye UK’s sales manager, commented: "Jivaro has a well established customer base across the world, but this new evolution will offer greater flexibility and performance for the e-commerce sector. The E-Jivaro offers e-commerce companies a fast, reliable automatic packaging solution that will reduce the need for double handling and bottlenecks on the line, and thus help to increase productivity."
Savoye has already taken its first E-Jivaro order from an e-commerce business based in Paris, France. Photobox, the European leader in on-line photo development, sharing and storage will be the first to benefit from the E-Jivaro’s numerous advantages.
