Simple but genius! The traditional Austrian spirit producer Stroh, was looking for a new product to help its logistics process. The goal was to the develop a brand new, smart edge-protector which gave the best protection for Stroh’s spirits-boxes on the pallet whilst saving time loading the pallets for shipping.

The smart edge-protector offers multiple benefit including a lock-function, self-retaining, height adaptable and increased side-length. The corrugated solution is 100% re-useable, recyclable and biodegradable. The new design creates annual savings in a five-digit-euro range and reduce Stroh’s carbon footprint. A great alternative solution for standard plastic or stiff cardboard corners.
