New Delhi, September 15: Flipkart says that it will introduce ‘anti-theft packaging’ to securely deliver parcels to customers across the country. The newly innovated packaging, that is currently awaiting patent, incorporates special security features that make the packages both tamper-proof as well as tamper-evident.

“Within the e-commerce industry, cases of pilferage especially of electronic goods and high-end mobiles have been a consistent challenge for e-commerce companies everywhere,” Flipkart senior director Satyam Choudhary said.

This innovation will enable Flipkart to squarely tackle issue related to pilferage, while reducing packaging material cost, packing process (IPP) and shipment volumes, giving a competitive edge over other e-commerce players, he added.

Flipkart said that it is aiming to increase the trust that customers place on the firm. “Designed specifically for high-net products like mobiles, tablets, and watches, this unique and exclusive pilferage protection box, which is currently awaiting patent grant, incorporates special security features in shipment,” Flipkart said in a statement.

Flipkart said the packaging will take substantial amount of time, resources, information, and techniques to re-open and re-seal to ensure original form of shipment. This will ensure that in case a package has been tampered with, the next supply chain person or customer can easily detect the same and not accept the package.
