Driven by a shared need for innovative solutions to efficiently deliver products to consumers in an ever-changing world, DS Smith and Zalando have further sealed their partnership with an agreement for DS Smith to be the principal supplier to Zalando, one of the leading European online platforms for fashion and lifestyle.
Working closely together through Innovation Days, Pack Right Workshops and testing workshops, Zalando now has a five-year innovation roadmap for its packaging solutions, designed to drive optimisation and reduce waste in packaging that arrives into the hands of Zalando and its e-commerce customers.
David Fischer, Head of Logistics Sustainability & Packaging Innovation, Zalando SE, said, “DS Smith has proven to be a highly reliable partner for Zalando with great innovative strength. Both the commercial and technical key account management raise the bar for our packaging suppliers.”
Partnering with a new, collaborative way of working, the companies are setting a strong ambition for Zalando to lead the way in reuse, world class efficiency in its packaging, and to play a key role in the vital transition to the circular economy.
