Suitable for e-commerce applications, Freebox is a new packaging system that produces customized cardboard packs. The system, which was developed by System Packaging, produces completed boxes (folded, glued, etc.) in real time for all product types. Each box is matched to the contents' volume, reducing shipping costs as well as the need for dunnage.

Freebox was developed to provide the flexibility needed to accommodate real-time size changes from one box to the next. After the dimensional parameters of the product to be packaged have been entered into the system, Freebox instantly transforms a plain, flat sheet of corrugated board into a box that is fully personalized in terms of dimensions and graphics. Once the Freebox process is complete, the user simply fills the resulting box, and the package is ready for shipment.

Freebox technology allows complete customization of the carton thanks to a monochrome or multicolor printing system that personalizes the box with logos, trademarks, and product information.
