Packsize International LLC today announced that the company holds position #60 on the Forbes’ list of America’s Most Promising Companies. This list features 100 privately held up-and-comers with compelling business models, strong management teams, notable customers, strategic partners, and precious investment capital.

Reflecting on his company’s progress to date, Packsize CEO and founder Hanko Kiessner commented: “Nine years ago, for the first time in history, our customers could make their own boxes without investing their precious capital into equipment, maintenance, and programming. Five years later, we introduced our award-winning business model in Europe. Today, the Packsize business model is emerging as a new industry: On Demand Packaging™. This sustainable approach to packaging reduces the world’s shipping volume for millions of e-commerce customers by roughly 40 percent. Forbes’ recognition reflects our progress on many fronts and of the contributions of our entire Packsize team, whom I’m tremendously proud to represent.”

Packsize resolves inventory and shipping complexities through the ability to create a custom-sized box for every product a company ships. This efficient, cost-effective, and just-in-time system of packaging machines increases total savings by an average of 35 percent. A leading sustainable business practice, this custom packaging solution results in less waste, lower shipping costs, decreased damage rates, and increased customer satisfaction.
