KYOCERA Document Solutions Inc.
We decided to sell a high-capacity ink supply unit as a function enhancement device for our production inkjet printer. Items shipped with the unit vary in shape and material, including an L-shaped part with poor packing efficiency and long hoses that cannot be bent. Therefore, we developed a packaging that puts the included items into cushioning materials for the unit so that the packaging size was not enlarged by the included items. As a result, the number of loading stages in shipping containers has increased from two to three and the transportation efficiency has been improved by 50%. Furthermore, the amount of packaging materials has reduced by 30 % because the boxes for the included items are no longer needed.
