NORDST: Packaging Solution for Marble Tables, Vases and Plates
Boxon recently offered a packaging solution for the marble furnishing manufacturer NORDST. We engineered the packaging for the products including marble tables, vases and plates. With our packaging the marble products can be sent safely to foreign and Chinese customers in China.
Marble attracts consumers’ attention because of its natural and extremely varied and colourful patterns. It shines when it is cut and polished. However, it is stiff but not tough so there is high risk to break when there is impact, vibration and drops in transit. The marble table should be especially protected as the marble top often is long, which results in higher risk to break.
Marble is sensitive to coloured substances such as juice, tea, coffee, oil, sauce, etc. which can stain it easily. This can happen because marble is porous and the coloured substances can penetrate through the pores. The longer the infiltration lasts, the harder it is to clean up. The beautiful appearance of marble will be sharply affected as long as it is stained. Moreover the stains may cause corrosion and in that case the surface could get rough.
Therefore when choosing packaging materials, we avoided the use of coloured materials in order to prevent marble being stained. In addition, the packing staff wore white gloves when packing and handling in case of stains in hands.
We made a packaging solution that could protect the products well, but did not use excessive packaging. The optimal packaging was engineered based on the product features, transport method, temperature, humidity, regulations, etc. We analyzed every aspect from packing, handling, warehousing, loading, transporting to sales. In doing so, we found the opportunities to minimize the cost.
We try to make the packaging that has the least impact on the environment. Therefore corrugated materials and EPE foam are used frequently because they are recyclable and not harmful to the environment. Besides, we use the least amount of materials to make packaging so that it saves resources. And we make the weight of the packaging as light as possible so that the energy that is consumed in transit can be less.
