Startups of Future Hub: Meet Packoorang
Packoorang - Circular Packaging as a Service
Packoorang is a fast-growing, government-backed startup from Oslo, Norway. The whole concept is based on reusable packaging and return system for ecommerce and internal product flow.
Around 50% of all global waste comes from packaging, hence why Packoorang’s team has set as goal to significantly reduce the environmental impact of goods transportation by replacing single-use packaging with more financially and environmentally sustainable solutions.
The product is a weather proof, padded, flexible, lightweight and secure bag which not only protects its content better, but it's also faster and more flexible to pack and can be reused at least 50-100 times. Also, its innovative tracking-and-return system features IoT and Blockchain technology, it is infinitely scalable and works with any type of packaging for any size and type of product.
