- Mondi has collaborated with one of Europe’s largest fashion e-retailers to create a range of packaging solutions tailored to eCommerce needs
- A combination of corrugated boxes and paper based MailerBAGS will be used to protect and transport fashion items across Europe, saving space and money
- MODIVO and Mondi’s experts have worked closely to find the right sustainable packaging solution
Mondi, a global leader in sustainable packaging and paper, has been appointed as the exclusive packaging provider for one of Europe’s largest fashion enterprises. Following a product trial earlier this year, Mondi will support MODIVO in switching from the standard rigid packaging currently used in the distribution of the e-retailer’s full collection of shoes, bags and clothes.
In its analysis of a customer’s packaging requirements, Mondi reviews Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and includes each touchpoint of the supply chain. Mondi’s unique customer centric EcoSolutions approach centres on listening to customer needs and careful investigation of all potential solutions.
"We don’t believe in a ‘one-size-fits-all' solution. Each customer has a unique product mix with different logistics requirements. When partnering with a customer, our focus is on decreasing total packaging costs, reducing waste, and meeting end-consumer needs. This means our customers can choose the packaging solutions that will be of most value to them, from kraft and functional barrier paper, to paper bags through to corrugated solutions.'' - Nedim Nisic, Mondi Group eCommerce Director
Explaining the move, Łukasz Boguszewski from MODIVO company says: “Mondi was able to improve our packaging considerably and support us in reaching our sustainability goals. The Mondi portfolio offers solutions that are fit for purpose, using less space and material, while still protecting the goods on their way to our customers. Not only is this shift more environmentally friendly and cost-effective for our business, but it also reflects our commitment to meeting our customers’ expectations and consistently improving their experience.”
For MODIVO, the optimisation of their packaging portfolio was based on products shipped and has resulted in most orders now utilising Mondi’s innovative MailerBAGs. These completely re-usable and recyclable paper bags are available in three designs to protect products without transporting too much air.
“Mondi is committed to partnering with our customers to find the most suitable packaging solution for their needs. Our core strength is the combination of our sustainability expertise, and an attractive eCommerce portfolio that offers fit-for-purpose packaging solutions. Because of this, we are able to support our customer's objective of becoming economic, efficient, and environmentally friendly,” emphasises Nisic.
Mondi is a global leader in packaging and paper, contributing to a better world by making innovative solutions that are sustainable by design.

Sustainability is at the centre of our strategy, with our ambitious commitments to 2030 focused on circular driven solutions, created by empowered people, taking action on climate.
In 2021, Mondi had revenues of €7.0 billion and underlying EBITDA of €1.2 billion from continuing operations, and employed 21,000 people worldwide.
