AI-Optimized Packaging

Aug. 4, 2022
DHL Supply Chain's OptiCarton promotes costs and emissions savings by optimizing packaging of shipments.

The AI solution OptiCarton helps to optimize the filling volume of boxes from an existing, pre-configured set of cartons; it can even suggest the splitting of an order into several consignments to make individual shipments more cost-effective or reduce their carbon footprint. The software suggests optimal packaging size and provides visual instructions on using the space inside.

Using sophisticated carton optimization algorithms combined with an on-demand approach to packaging within the distribution center helps brands and retailers produce the right package at the right time for each shipment, driving down transportation costs, minimizing waste, and ensuring the product is protected. With OptiCarton, DHL is responding to the current shortage in cardboard boxes and packaging materials in the market.
