The DuoOptipac was created and developed by our team at Duo UK’s Manchester site. Together, they designed and produced a new packaging innovation that would provide ecommerce retailers with a parcel bag that delivers fulfilment efficiencies and convenience for both customers and ecommerce businesses.
The DuoOptipac was invented and launched in 2016 to address a common problem faced by our customers to save money on deliveries without compromising on the specification of the bag. The DuoOptipac mailing bag features an integrated carry handle which lies snug against the body of the bag maintaining the original capacity but reducing the volumetric dimensions of the package. Our customers have described it as the fulfilment warehouse’s secret weapon as it takes up less space on the conveyor belt system increasing parcel throughput and reduces volumetric shipping prices without requiring any changes to the pick, pack and ship operation.
To date (April 2020) over 257,000,000 DuoOptipac mailing bags have been manufactured and sold to customers worldwide.
Duo commercial Director Anthony Brimelow explains: “We developed the DuoOptipac mailing bag based on feedback from customers on the escalating ecommerce fulfilment costs, and demands by ecommerce shoppers for increased delivery options and the need for a new parcel style to fulfil this demand.
“We pride ourselves on our ability to adapt and innovate, now more than ever, and the honour of a Queen’s Award for Enterprise is testament to the transformation that DuoOptipac delivered to our customers. We’re all extremely proud to receive such a prestigious accolade and it’s given us a real morale boost in what are truly challenging times.”
The DuoOptipac has truly earned its title as the fulfilment warehouse’s secret weapon. For more information on the DuoOptipac mailing bag, please get in touch with us today here.
