Eliminating plastic cushioning materials for shipping products

June 18, 2019

ZENOAQ has replaced all plastic cushioning materials used for product shipment with paper ones provided by PALTEK, achieving the promotion of plastic-free and high-efficiency logistics operations.

Currently, there is concern regarding global-scale environmental pollution due to plastic waste; it is one of the major issues on the agenda at the 2019 G20 Osaka Summit, which will be held this month.

ZENOAQ has made efforts to reduce and reuse plastic materials, such as replacing plastic containers for liquid feed additives with paper cartons, and consigning the collection of plastic waste in the offices to recycle companies. Although plastic air pillows were still being used as packing material for products during shipment, Zenoaq found out about an excellent system of paper cushioning materials, called "FillPakⓇ Table Top with Cutter Converter" by Ranpak, and decided to implement it in the company.
Ranpak's Kraft paper for filling excess space in the shipping box is derived from 100% virgin pulp, made from eco-friendly thinned wood cut out from FSC-certified (*) forests. The FillPakⓇ TTC devices set up next to the packing tables convert Kraft paper into a paper-star configuration in order to maximize volume, and dispenses the void-filling material directly into the box at a high speed.
With the introduction of this system, Zenoaq has been able to not only eliminate plastic cushioning materials, but also shorten the time for shipping operations, and significantly reduce material costs. At present, this system is equipped and operated in all company distribution bases.

ZENOAQ continues to strive to create a pleasant environment for humans and animals alike, through the promotion and carrying out of environmentally-friendly activities.
