Mason Companies Purchases CVP-500 Automated Packing System from ProShip, Inc.
Innovative packing solution will optimize operations for the busy holiday season.
Brookfield, Wis., September 12, 2016 – ProShip, Inc., a Neopost company, today announced that Mason Companies, a nationwide retailer of footwear, apparel and general merchandise, has purchased its CVP-500 automated packing solution. The CVP-500 will optimize all steps of package fulfillment for Mason Companies and will facilitate the company’s continued e-commerce growth.
The CVP-500 builds, fills, folds and labels each order in one seamless process and creates a custom-fit package every seven seconds. By creating a custom-fit parcel, the CVP-500 uses 20% less corrugated and eliminates unnecessary void fill. This cost-effective automated packing solution makes fulfillment faster, more reliable and more efficient than ever before.
“We are thrilled to extend our partnership with Mason Companies with the purchase of the CVP-500 automated packing solution,” said Scott Eggenberger, Director of Business Development/CVP-500 at ProShip, Inc. “Mason Companies currently uses the ProShip Product Suite, our enterprise-wide, multi-carrier shipping software that optimizes shipping processes. With the CVP-500, the company will have a fully integrated cost-saving solution for order fulfillment that will increase packing and shipping efficiencies, especially during the peak holiday season.”
“The CVP-500 will be a great addition to Mason Companies,” said Pat Sullivan, Distribution Center Manager at Mason Companies. “We saw the CVP-500 in action while in Europe, where it has been very well received by a number of large retailers. We were extremely impressed with its capabilities and its ability to improve our warehouse efficiency and customer service. At the same time, the CVP-500 will help us to save money in labor, packaging materials and shipping costs. The new system will be installed in time to handle the peak shipping volumes of the upcoming holiday season and we look forward to seeing the valuable results we know this innovative system can achieve.”
This is the second CVP-500 automated packing solution sold by ProShip since the system was launched in the United States in February 2016. For more information, visit the website for the CVP-500.
