Vacuum Packaging to Reduce Shipping Cost, Bulk, and Carbon Footprint

Posted by Chela Mancuso

In the world of commercial manufacturing and packaging, efficiency is key, and this is where the use of compression packaging machines comes into play. The AMAC Technologies’ Compression Packaging Machine uses vacuum packaging to reduce shipping cost, bringing forth a revolution in the packaging industry. With its ability to reduce the bulk of many compressible products, it significantly minimizes their shipping volume and cost, a feat achieved by utilizing an adjustable degree of compression.

Typically used for compressing items such as pillows, foam cushions, mattresses, bedding, and folded clothes, this machine is versatile and could be utilized for virtually any compressible product.

How Does A Compression Packaging Machine Work?

The product to be compressed is placed into a heat-sealable bag, inserted into the machine, and within a few seconds, the package is compressed and heat sealed. The efficiency is impressive, with a typical production rate of 3 – 5 pieces per minute and the ability to adjust the degree of compression for each item.

3 Benefits of Using Vacuum Packaging To Reduce Shipping Cost And Bulk

  • Cost Effective – One of the primary benefits of utilizing this vacuum packaging technology is the drastic reduction in shipping costs. By reducing the volume of the products, more items can be fit in a single shipment. This means fewer trips and lower freight costs, without compromising product quality. The impact on a company’s bottom line can be substantial.
  • Reduced Carbon Footprint – In addition, the use of the compression packaging machine brings with it environmental benefits. By reducing shipping volumes and consequently the number of trips, the carbon footprint associated with shipping gets significantly minimized. In today’s era where businesses are increasingly conscious of their environmental impact, this machine offers a green solution.
  • Easy Storage and Transportation – Furthermore, the convenience of shipping and storage cannot be overstated. The compact nature of the packaged products means they take up less space, allowing for more efficient utilization of storage areas. This also extends to the end-users, as compressed products are easier to handle and move around, offering convenience to both consumers and delivery personnel.
