PKN talks... Carbon neutral shipping and ecologically friendly packaging, with Eva Ross of Sendle.

In this episode, Lindy Hughson, managing editor & publisher of PKN Packaging News, talks to Eva Ross, chief marketing and customer officer at Sendle, Australia's first 100 per cent carbon neutral shipping carrier.

The discussion starts with Ross telling us about Sendle's formation and development, along with her role in the company. We then move on to the impact of Covid on eCommerce, the incredible increases in shipping volume, and customers supporting local businesses when buying online.

Ross and Hughson review the issues associated with the increase in shipping, which includes the large volumes of packaging, and difficulties encountered in trying to recycle once a delivery has arrived. They then discuss the importance of offering reused recyclable materials to provide alternative ecologically-friendly packaging.

Ross describes how Sendle's carbon neutral shipping process works, including dispatch efficiency and offsetting. She also steps through Sendle's partnerships with companies that supply them with 100 per cent compostable packaging.

We wrap the episode with Sendle's recent and successful challenge to Australia Post to also become a carbon neutral shipper. Ross also tells us how Sendle works with its clients to help promote the use of carbon neutral shipping and eco-friendly packaging to their customers.
