E-Commerce Distribution

E-Commerce packages are subject to random orientation, rough handling, non-traditional secondary packaging, and many more 'touch points' in distribution. This leaves the e-commerce package much more susceptible to leaking. When a liquid package leaks in an e-commerce shipment, it's likely to be packaged with various other products. The leaking package can damage the products it shipped with, nearby packages, and ultimately the consumer's experience and perception.


E-Commerce Retailer & Shipper Packaging Requirements

Leading e-commerce retailers and package delivery companies understand the risk of a leaking package and have developed their own independent packaging requirements to prevent leaking. E-commerce fullfillment centers can refuse or return your inventory or even block future shipments if you have leaking packages. The major e-commerce retailers and package delivery companies recognize induction seals as a solution to provide leak-proof packaging for liquids.
