Staples And Packsize Win First Place Award For Sustainability From The World Packaging Organisation

SALT LAKE CITY, June 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Staples, Inc. (Nasdaq: SPLS) and Packsize International jointly won the "Gold Sustainability" top honor from the World Packaging Organisation during the 45 th annual WorldStar Packaging Awards competition held during the Interpack trade fair in Dusseldorf, Germany. The WorldStar competition is recognized as the pre-eminent international award in packaging and is presented only to those entries that had won recognition in an approved regional or national competition during 2013. The combined Smart-size Packaging nomination won the qualifying AmeriStar award in June 2013 and subsequently a WorldStar award last November.

Packsize makes it easy with On Demand Packaging (http://www.packsize.com/on-demand), a revolutionary packaging system that lets companies produce the right-sized box exactly when they need it.

Staples' Smart-size Packaging, developed by Packsize International, resolves the number one customer complaint—excessive packaging. Smart-size Packaging measurably improves customer satisfaction and supply chain sustainability and efficiencies.  For Staples, this translates to more than 15 percent less corrugated used, approximately 60 percent less void fill, and an improvement in less-than-full-case average cube utilization by 20 percent. By implementing Smart-size Packaging, Staples also reduces its annual carbon footprint by more than 25,000 metric tons annually.

On Demand Packaging® technology creates delivery boxes customized for each order through a unique integration of technology, equipment, and processes. By working in partnership with Packsize, Staples created an efficient made-to-order process flow by optimizing order size, material requirements, and packaging throughput.

Packsize's revolutionary On Demand Packaging® system gives companies the ability to produce the right-sized box for every product when they need it. www.packsize.com
