ScanStar success for DS Smith

DS Smith design teams in Denmark and Finland have collected two awards at the latest ScanStar, with Finland scoring for the fourth consecutive year.

This year’s edition has been organised by the Swedish Association and there were 32 submissions from the Nordic Countries. The jury awarded the Recycling container for the Finish DS Smith team. These empty containers are sent to retailers to collect empty cans and pet bottles in a special filling machine, which collects the cans and bottles for recycling. It fits inside an EUR-pallet when transported flat. This new innovative container is ready to use only in 30 secs, thanks to the sealed bottom flaps and manually locked top structure. This brings efficiency to the shops and supermarkets.

Additionally, the DS Smith Danish team has been awarded with the User-Friendly Securing Racks for Door Handles. Box of door handles is a user-friendly packaging with all the needed equipment placed in the same box — a clever improvement compared to the previous plastic bags the user needed to rip. The user can also easily calculate how many doors handles there are left in the packaging.

The award ceremony for ScanStar winners will be held on October 28th.
