Easy to Assemble !! Enabling Cycle Transportation of Large Heavy Load Using Paper Container
50% Cost Reduction Compared to One Way Transporation

September 25, 2013

Information Management Solution Provider Toppan Forms Co., Ltd. (Toppan Forms hereunder) will start marketing foldable paper packing material to efficiently transport largeheavy loads between companies. The "Paper Container" technology using cardboard paper that is 6 times stronger than the conventional corrugated cardboard can be reused over 100 times allowing it to be easily assembled and disassembled, and reduce total transportation cost to 50% maximum compared to the conventional one way method.

Normally, when transporating a large heavy load good, it is fixed to the wooden structure and packaged manually by assembling a corrugated cardboard carton. Furthermore, most transportation is one way that requires the sender to keep a large stock and various kinds of corrugated carton boxes. On the other hand, the receiver needs to do extra work for disassembling and sorting (for recycling) large corrugated carton box. The "Paper Container" can reduce the volume by 1/10 by folding them, significantly saving packaging material cost, disassembly time, collection transportation cost, and storage space.
