Booktopia is Australia's leading online book retailer, shipping 4 million books a year from its 10,000-square-meter Sydney headquarters and distribution center.
In 2015 Booktopia moved to its current location to accommodate the brand's rapid growth. However, with this move came the need to address the significant volume of carton product that was being picked and packed by hand, as this was slowing its packing processes and causing throughput to fall below the rate of demand.
After assessing Booktopia's supply chain and future growth objectives, Sealed Air introduced an I-Pack® automated void-reduction system and inflatable Bubble Wrap® solution that solved the speed and efficiency challenges of its previously manual process.
