5 Ways A.I. Benefits the Packaging Industry

Each year, the number of industries embracing artificial intelligence (A.I.) and making it a part of their everyday operations grows - and that includes the packaging industry.

Through an OMNIA Partners contract, members can benefit from Trinity Packaging Supply's competitive pricing and award-winning technology, enhancing their customer experience when purchasing packaging and industrial supplies.

Optimize Your Packaging

Different products need different types of packaging to get from A to B in one piece. Amazon has perfected selecting the right packaging types using A.I. while reducing waste significantly.

In 2020, Amazon announced that they were able to reduce shipment damage by 24% by using machine learning to determine which packaging to use for their products. Not only did this result in a lot of happy customers, but they were also able to cut shipping costs by 5%!

Cut Down Delivery Costs

Another benefit to optimizing packaging? You can fit more packages in each shipment.

According to a Gartner survey, A.I. will greatly impact the supply industry through 2025. They predict that automation tools will improve transportation and make supply chains 21% more efficient!

Since A.I. will find the lightest type of packaging for each product (for example, choosing mailers instead of corrugated boxes), you will be able to transport more packages in each truck, saving you money on packaging and delivery costs.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Selecting the lightest packaging to safely transport products doesn’t just cut down on packaging costs - it also reduces the amount of packaging that needs to be recycled.

Minimizing the amount of packaging waste your company produces helps support environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals. However, you don’t need A.I. to start implementing sustainable practices for your business.

Here at Trinity, we commit to zero landfill waste. Through our National Pallet Buyback Program, we ensure that 100% of our wood pallets are either repaired or recycled and turned into mulch. Plus, we pay to take your broken pallets, saving you time and earning your business extra revenue.

Designing Product Packaging

A.I. can be an incredible tool for creating customized primary packaging.

To test how successful A.I. could be in creating cutting-edge packaging designs, Studio Blackthorns founder Ludovic Mornand used graphic generator and copy generator Rytr to create packaging concepts for Komo, a probiotic soda brand.

Not only did A.I. create eye-catching packaging for Komo, but it did 80% of the work!

Provide an Exceptional Customer Experience

Have you seen the “Recommended for You” sections on your favorite retailers' websites? That’s most likely A.I.!

A.I. technology greatly benefits customer relationship management (CRM) efforts by using data to determine consumer needs.

For example, an online retailer can take the data they have on you, from browsing history to past purchases, and discern which products you will be most interested in.

Ikea uses Recommendations A.I. to provide tailored product recommendations to its customers and has seen a 2% increase in average order value and a 30% increase in click-through rates since implementing the technology.
