Need more soap? Jabil designs packaging that automatically reorders for you


    The St. Petersburg-based Jabil is working on a new packaging technology that can be programmed to automatically re-order consumable goods like coffee, diapers, shampoo and liquid hand soap.

    The technology is designed to work through Amazon’s Dash Replenishment Service — and can affect reordering for both homes and industry.

    “Your packaging for your household products would know when you are running out, and would automatically order more for you, so you don’t have to think about it,” explains Amanda Williams, Smart Packaging Lead for Jabil Packaging Solutions, a division of Jabil.
