We are a company located in Sønderborg, which, in collaboration with software experts, online stores and plastic manufacturers - works purposefully with the development of sustainable technological solutions for use in the e-commerce logistics area.
Growth in Danish e-commerce has exploded. Likewise, the consumption of disposable packaging, in the form of cardboard boxes and fillings.
A disposable packaging / cardboard box lives, from the time it is folded in the packing unit, until it is discarded by the consumer, on average only 21-24 hours.
It is a huge waste of resources, and often problems arise with the disposal of cardboard by the individual consumer. The waste stations are challenged and the larger production of cardboard - strains the climate.
In Denmark and the rest of the world, demands are made on climate friendliness in all respects, so it is only a matter of time before demands are also made on the packaging part of online shopping.
We, at PERO Solutions, wanted to find a solution to the above problem and have through technological innovation, now developed a product that can reduce the large consumption of disposable packaging in the e-commerce system and the accompanying waste problem among consumers - and which also contributes to an optimization of all links in the e-commerce logistics system.
A recyclable packaging that is so strong that it can circulate a thousand times in the e-commerce system - from webshops with logistics operators to end users and back.
To ensure a circular economy, the packaging is built in recyclable plastic.
To make circulation possible the packaging has a built-in computer chip.
By using the technological solution, PERO, several links in the value chain are optimized:
Packing and sorting shipments is made easier. The chip, which constantly emits a signal, enables the logistics operator to quickly read shipping information, so that a more efficient packing of trucks and a better route planning can take place, - which leads to - space and time savings and less kilometers on the roads.
We focus on UN World Goals 9, 11, 12, 13 and 17: Industry, innovation and infrastructure, sustainable cities and communities, responsible consumption and production, climate action and partnership for action.
With the product, PERO, we contribute to the green transition through innovation and digitization
