Brand Packaging

Study: Oversized packaging is number one annoyance for consumers
Retail Times
The number one annoyance for online shoppers is receiving items sent in unsuitably sized packaging, according to the results of a consumer survey published by a leading U.K. packaging provider. The OnePoll research, commissioned by the U.K.'s largest packaging distributor, Macfarlane Packaging, was conducted across 1,000 UK consumers and found over a quarter of them received items delivered in boxes or parcels that were far too large.
