Sealed Air Corporation today announced the launch of its StealthWrap™ ultra durable cartoning solution, a patented micro-layer, opaque cartoning alternative which allows primary package cartons to be protected for transit without the need for outer boxes or additional packaging materials.
The company also announced that XPO Logistics (NYSE: XPO), a leading global provider of transportation and supply chain solutions, will be the first to bring this innovative packaging solution to market in the logistics industry. XPO is deploying StealthWrap™ in several distribution centers where it fulfills and ships e-commerce orders for customers.
StealthWrap™ is a uniquely engineered packaging product that provides security and protection while eliminating the need for extra shipping cartons and packing materials. When applied, StealthWrap™ shrinks and adheres to the dimensions of the product, obscures any markings or identification of the product inside, and provides a strong, damage-resistant covering.
"Consumers have become accustomed to receiving a box within a box within a box, and while the material waste and inefficiency of that kind of packaging method is evident, it has long been the only method available to provide adequate protection for the manufactured item in its original packaging," said Kenneth P. Chrisman, President of Sealed Air's Product Care Division.
Sealed Air StealthWrap™ will be available in North America beginning in December 2016.
