Case Studies

As material agnostic solution providers – where necessary we design customized packaging solutions to solve our customers pain points.

We start with a quick study of the parts, how long will the packaging be in use, locations to deliver and pick up the packaging, volume of goods to be moved. Based on this data and the packaging design, the project feasibility is determined.

We attempt to calculate the savings to our customers over the lifetime of the project as the difference between current packaging spend and revised spend based on the IPSCOM proposed solution.

The savings are calculated in the following areas -

  • % Savings in total packaging spend

  • % Savings in total freight spend – includes return freight as applicable

  • % Total savings on packaging & freight

  • Actual reduction in metric tonnes (% reduction in carbon foot print) Based on the Carnegie Mellon Green Design Institute model.

  • Carbon sequestered by acres of U.S. forests per year based on above carbon foot print reduction as per United States Environmental Protection Agency
