In recent years, the continuous rise in packaging waste has been primarily attributed to the growing popularity of e-commerce. Currently hardly any reusable or circular packaging schemes have been implemented in Austrian e-commerce operations. The reason is mostly because there is no cost-effective way to realize reusable packaging as handling are critical to the profitability of the packaging scheme. To address this circumstance and potentially promote
the further implementation of circular packaging, the aim of this paper is to present a new circular packaging technology which is based on automized and modular packaging units. For the success of such a new packaging technology, consumers have a critical influence. Therefore, a survey is conducted to evaluate consumers’ perceptions on circular packaging for e-grocery deliveries.
