Air Cushion Packaging - additional product protection

Air cushion packaging is a dual-material solution of a corrugated box and plastic film bag that is filled with air. This packaging combines the supply chain performance of corrugated with the lightweight performance of air cushions to create a highly effective transit pack. Air cushion packaging is quick and easy to use and offers the highest levels of protection on all six faces of the pack to ensure products arrive in perfect condition.

Boxes are erected and packed as normal, and then sealed using a specialized Groupac® system supplied by Smurfit Kappa that blows air into the bag at a pre-set air pressure filling voids to create a protective cushion. Air cushion packaging is lightweight and minimizes both shipping costs and carbon emissions, while also eliminating the need for additional fitments or loose fill.
