By: Thien Quang Tran and Anton Malmkjær Møller, Industrial Design, Aalborg University (AAU)

Summary

RackBox helps electronics companies such as Elgiganten, POWER, and Bilka and their warehouse employees by reducing the use of disposable plastics and the need for harmful working positions. RackBox provides a holistic solution for electronic retail stores, strengthening their green profiles, improving the work environment, and cutting down the expenses for single-use packaging, and finally reducing the carbon footprint.

Project description

RackBox is a classic long-life product of high quality made for van drivers and ware-house operatives at electronic retail who pick up and pack TVs for service. It offers new features, that challenge the current way of packing TVs with optimized ergonomic handling and without the need to compromise on the protection level.

The aim of RackBox is also to provide a holistic solution for electronic retail stores, meaning they’ll strengthen their green profile, help reduce bad work postures to their warehouse operatives’, cut down the expenses on single-use packing material, and finally reduce the carbon footprint.

RackBox’s identity is inspired by military-grade hard cases, emphasizing the durability and protective build with a clear expression of high-quality. With three sets of different wheels with each of their well-considered purpose, the RackBox is designed to give the van driver a smooth maneuvering experience.
