Airsac helps create award-winning packaging solution

Macfarlane Packaging, our parent company, has been awarded the Supply Chain Solution of the Year at the UK Packaging Awards. A Closed Loop Transit Pack developed for customer Peak Scientific saw our colleagues scoop up the award at the ceremony held on 30th October.

The award-winning design

Replacing heavy timber crates, the award-winning solution is made with high density polyethylene fibre for durability. Plus, it uses Airsac inflatable liner to protect sensitive electronic equipment from damage.

The pack is user-friendly with zip, Velcro and clip closures. Built-in Castor wheels and a pull strap also allow for simple and safe manoeuvring of heavy product.

Carl Smethurst, Airsac Category Manager, said: “As Network Packaging was the original home of Airsac inflatable packaging, we’re excited to see the product being used successfully across Macfarlane Group to create amazing protective designs, including this award-winning pack.”

Packaging that delivers results

Not only is the Closed Loop Transit Pack prize winning, it also delivered tangible results for Peak Scientific, including:

  • Reducing pack weight by over 44kg – no more bulky wooden crates
  • Releasing valuable storage space – when not in use, the design can be folded flat
  • Delivering savings of £15,000 per year – slashing delivery costs and the expense of replacing damaged goods
