    In these times of climate change, recycling and save the planet, isn't it nice to see company's helping out.

    The following photo's are just typical of many packages I receive, this one also had a 15 page health and safety guide in it, which is Just as well because I had planned to eat the stuff and squirt it into my eyes....NOT. upload_2019-8-9_10-3-45.gif

    It needs to be in a big box so they don't lose it in the back of the van........

    At least all of the packaging is recyclable.

    You mean so that the contents can survive the "Sorter's Football match", don't you?
    I did a bit of Agency driving for Parcel Force & Parceline (now DPD) many years ago. I've seen, I know.

    Meanwhile, one parcel is such a small drop in a daily, worldwide Ocean of parcels that reducing it's size won't make much difference. The same vehicles have been involved in it's distribution regardless; that's why stuff gets delivered so quickly (normally!!).

    RS is notorious for this kind of follies. We ordered 50 PCB-connectors at work and received them packed individually in ESD-plastic bags.

    I don't actually blame them for that. In the current litigious times you can't legislate for idiots or ar**holes.

    You can, however, bamboozle them with paperwork...

    Its simply standardised packaging that can be machine sorted, quicker, more accurate and ultimately cheaper to process.

    Its the way logistic's for parcels and packets is going.
