Dorel | Packaging Success Story | Smurfit Kappa
Furniture Packaging


How our sustainably designed packaging reduced 14.4 tons of EPS annually for Dorel

The Challenge
Brazilian company Dorel had traditionally used EPS packaging for shipping its furniture which was unsustainable and, due to the size, made the products difficult to handle and prone to damage. They were looking to improve transportation with protective solutions made from recyclable materials. They were also looking to lower packaging costs.

The Approach
Smurfit Kappa analysed the product and worked to develop a corrugated solution that would meet all of Dorel’s requirements. Using a number of unique tools including PackExpert, SupplySmart and eSmart, combined with our expertise, we designed a fully recyclable pack that ensured full product protection and optimised storage space.

The Result
The new sustainable solution will remove approximately 14.4 tons of EPS per year, which meets Dorel’s requirements as well as benefitting the environment. In addition to strengthening the partnership between Smurfit Kappa and Dorel, the sustainable design has led to them to developing a self-assembly internal protectors made from recyclable material.
