DS Smith: hygienic solutions for sustainable delivery

Britain’s lockdown measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 have led to an increase in online shopping. As expectations for deliveries increase – when it comes to both speed and hygiene – DS Smith has created packaging specifically designed for quick, clean, and socially-distant drop-offs.

Location United Kingdom

Scope
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the UK government ordered the vast majority of the population to stay at home unless absolutely necessary. While this means that high street stores have had to close their doors, it has led to a massive jump in online retail. Some estimates suggest that online sales will double from 20% of all sales to 40% as more people go from making their purchases online instead of in-store. [1]
