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.
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.
