Now more than ever, e-commerce brings the seller and buyer closer, as the latter is able to browse and shop his favourite items from the comfort of his home. But did you know that choosing the right packaging to protect the goods makes or breaks the online shopping experience? Let’s look back at the rise of e-commerce and discover the cardboard boxes which contributed to this “boom”.
14% of Mauritians shopped online in 2017. This percentage, as small as it seems, nonetheless allowed Mauritius to rank as the second consumer of e-commerce goods in Africa, according to a Mauritian study published by the World Trade Organization. A pandemic and two lockdowns down the road, the people of Mauritius gained a fresh perspective, learning to value their easy access to Made in Moris products, as well their favourite imported items, all a mere “click” away. Many have, since then, adopted this new shopping mode which is as comfortable as it is practical. It is, then, easy to focus on the product, all the while forgetting the crucial part packaging plays in getting the product in a perfect state to the recipient. The Dakri Cartons team leaves the floor to one of its new star product : the e-commerce cardboard box.
“A typical day in my life starts as I’m being unfolded. That is probably the smoothest time, before the rest of my eventful day! The business fills me up with pre-packaged products. I am then taped shut and handled through the supply chain, before being piled up with other mates… Thankfully, the edge crush test allows me to stay intact through the bumpiest rides!
Then, we set off for delivery, sometimes in the central plateau… But we no longer fear its rainy weather, after the water resistance tests.That brings us to my favourite moment of the day: when the satisfying sound of a blade glides through the scotch tape, freeing the much anticipated order, and the recipient smiles from ear to ear, as they hold their order in their hands… I never get enough of those!”, says Dakri Carton’s e-commerce cardboard box.
The highest level of protection for e-commerce products
Dakri Cartons’ corrugated cardboard boxes are made of a minimum of three layers of paper, which create a sturdy structure to absorb shocks during transport time… And there’s still more for fragile goods. Over-wrapping is the perfect option that balances the right quantity of paper and shock-absorbing materials for maximum protection. At Dakri Cartons, every e-commerce product has its own solution!
Such know-how allowed the company to gain and nurture the trust of major e-commerce businesses, such as the Mauritius Post, through which local artisans securely send products, Zafair.com, for the best deals, and Price Guru, a leading company on the local e-commerce scene, with an ever-expanding range of products.
