Kommund’s „T-Seal“

reduces CO2 emissions and sourcing costs of shipping material by up to 90%

The re-use of current shipping-
material is limited by two factors:

  1. By ripping-off a part of the seal to open the container, a structural damage occurs, which makes re-use impossible latest after the return shipment.
  2. Shipping-labels that cannot be removed easily are attached directly to the body of the shipping-unit.

 

The solution: T-Seal

Allows the use of existing packages like boxes or mailer-bags multiple times instead of routing them into the recycling process after each customer.

What makes T-Seal unique is the fact that all adhesive- and labeling-areas for a secure shipment are integrated here. The actual body of the package will be left untouched. Therefore, by only exchanging the T-Seal the package is ready for re-use.

T-Seal is a registered application by Kommund, which is available for license business.

Why the re-use of existing shipping-material makes sense

For the production of 1 kg of corrugated cardboard, 326 gr of CO2 are emitted. This is a strong argument, why existing shipping-material should be used multiple times. But does this material have to be disassembled into its single ingredients, only to produce new shipping-material again at the end?

The recycling-process for shipping-material itself consumes a lot of Water, Energy and Logistics, which also results in high CO2 emission. Consequently the question arises, why the focus is currently not yet on the lifetime extension of already existing sipping-material?

Re-using a single package only once more using a T-Seal reduces  CO2 emissions as well as sourcing costs allocated to the shipping-material for this second shipment by approximately 90%.

T-Seal extends the lifetime of existing shipping-material and therefore delays the ressource-intensive recycling-process

 

The opportunity has never been greater!

In Germany alone, re-using return shipments within E-Commerce can save 70.000 tons of CO² emissions annually.
