DS SMITH, leading global fibre-based packaging solutions manufacturer, announces strategic supply agreement with JONSAC, a Swedish producer of FSC® certified paper mailers for e-commerce.

The partnership will see the two companies collaborate to accelerate the transition from plastic to paper mailers in the e-commerce market. The solutions will be available to all DS Smith customers in Europe, including the Nordics, UK, Benelux, Germany, Switzerland, France and Italy.

DS Smith and Jonsac will jointly provide a range of recyclable products to meet customer requirements immediately, while also anticipating the types of packaging solutions that will be needed by the e-commerce sector in the future, in line with key market requirements and rapidly evolving consumer trends.

DS Smith customers will benefit from the ability to order high volumes from a single supplier, simplifying and streamlining their respective supply chain operations.

The new agreement between the two companies builds on an existing agreement for DS Smith customers in the Nordic region.

Marc Chiron, Sales, Marketing & Innovation Director, DS Smith Packaging Division, says:

“We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with Jonsac, a trusted supplier who shares our common goals of plastic reduction. We have a proven track record of working together very productively and effectively in the Nordics, and we are excited to extend this offering and innovation across Europe. This activity is aligned with our commitment to the circular economy.”

Torbjörn Rodhe, Managing Director of Jonsac, says:

“We are excited to partner with DS Smith and innovate alongside them for the current and future generation of e-commerce customers. This collaboration is a perfect fit for our solutions and product offering.”
