Whether it’s golfing equipment, tennis rackets or sails, people love taking their sports equipment on holiday. And of course they also like ordering such items online. Bicycles, too, are shipped on a global scale. Take, for instance, Brompton – bicycle manufacturers who send their products to as many as 45 export markets. To ship those popular folding bikes, the international packaging company DS Smith has developed a form of corrugated packaging that reflects the quality of the product itself.
All the components are shipped in a 100% recyclable box which contains an extended glue flange and precise flap arrangements, ensuring protection and stability during shipment. When the new owner opens the package, they will find all the different parts in an order that is immediately plausible. In 2014, therefore, this innovative bike packaging received the much-coveted Golden Starpack Award.
