How Smart Packaging Supports the ‘New Normal’ and Beyond
During this unprecedented period, Americans are receiving more packages than ever. In fact, according to Consignor, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought about a:
- 13% increase in overall parcels shipped
- 17% growth in B2C ecommerce shipments
- 9% increase in domestic parcel shipments
But how are Americans ensuring they’re remaining safe while receiving this elevated number of packages? Immediate disinfection, mask and glove usage, and other measures can play a role, but safety concerns remain.
Fortunately, there are ways to ensure the packages currently making our lives more comfortable aren’t putting you at risk.
Best Practices for Package Pickup
To protect yourself and others from potential safety concerns surrounding packages, you can:
- Avoid contact with others as much as possible when shipping and receiving goods
- Discard packaging as soon as possible and with as little direct contact as possible
- Leverage automated retrieval systems, etc. to further reduce touchpoints and handling
Position Imaging can help you adhere to these strategies.
