(CINCINNATI: July 13, 2016)—Intelligrated® (www.intelligrated.com), a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, announces the next installment of its On The Move educational webinar series. The new episode, "Goodbye cartons, hello polybags," is scheduled for Thursday, July 21 at 2 p.m. EDT.
Presented by Tim Kraus, product management manager, this episode explores the move to shipping direct-to-consumer orders in polybags rather than corrugate cartons, and the subsequent challenges posed to material handling systems, processes and technologies. Attendees can learn how the desire to reduce shipping costs leads to greater adoption of polybags, why the pliable nature of polybags is difficult for traditional material handling systems to handle and how singulation compares with bulk handling of polybags in terms of total fulfillment costs.

"The explosive growth of e-commerce continues to be a dominant force, with an impact that extends to packaging, as retailers shift to malleable packaging types like polybags to keep shipping costs low," says Jerry Koch, director, corporate marketing and product management. "These can present handling challenges to automated material handling equipment, and keeping high-throughput operations running efficiently starts with understanding those challenges and evaluating equipment and processes."
