E-commerce got a boost during the Covid period and even post-Covid, it is growing by double digits.
Manufacturing paper-based packaging for E-commerce is giving specific opportunities and challenges for the corrugated industry.
The FEFCO Operations and Innovation Committee (OIC) is organizing a one-day workshop to go in-depth on the impact of E-commerce on our processes, technology, and logistics.

Items that will be treated:
•    Economical impact of E-commerce on corrugated
•    Impact on product mix and design
•    Legal impact (void, re-use, recycle, …)
•    Impact on board compositions and testing procedures
•    Manufacturing E-commerce boxes on corrugators (fanfold, tape applicators, …)
•    Manufacturing E-commerce boxes in converting (taping on folder gluers, digital print, inside/outside printing, …)
•    Specific processes (Right Size Box machinery,  Box on Demand, Track and Tracing, ….).
