The Brief: Our customer wanted a single solution to enable them to send out all of their beverages, with zero breakages. We were asked to come up with a design solution for a fitting that could securely hold several beer bottles, of differing sizes, or cans in place. This fitting, along with an outer shipping box had to withstand being sent via courier network and effectively protect all of the contents.
The end goals would enable the company to grow their online presence with great customer reviews, whilst finding a solution that was also cost-effective.
The Twist: This one fitting needed to hold different sizes of bottles or cans, holding in place each one, regardless of its size.
The Solution: Our design team came up with a concept, whereby part of the fitting can be folded over and used for smaller bottles or left standing for larger ones. This one cardboard fitting can hold 330ml, 500ml or 600ml bottles or cans.
The fitting itself is supplied flat, for ease of storage and then made up just before use. The cardboard fitting folds into itself to make a sturdy platform structure, ready for bottles or cans to be inserted into the pre-cut apertures.
The Boxes: We also supply a range of custom sized double walled cardboard boxes specifically for these fittings. The boxes can be branded or supplied plain. The shipping boxes can hold a different number of fittings so that individual orders can be fulfilled. Either 1 fitting of 6 bottles, 2 fittings of 12 bottles or 4 fittings with a total of 24 bottles.
This innovative design is great for wholesalers, niche breweries and any online business selling drinks. All of our cardboard boxes are also supplied flat to save on storage.
The Result: Our customer now gets better protection for their goods. Minimal breakages mean reduced costs and more importantly happy customers. With happy customers the business is now able to grow their online presence via positive customer reviews.
