Duck brand unveils packing innovation to make moving process easier

PKBR Staff Writer Published 12 April 2018

The Duck brand, which provides a range of tapes, packaging supplies and home products, has unveiled an app-based labeling, storage and locating system to make the moving and storage process easier.

The company claims that the new Duck Pack & Track system is the smart solution for packing, unpacking, storing and identifying things.

Duck brand's new moving and storage labels and scanning technology will make the entire process easier, where customers can use their smartphone to keep track of box's contents.

The new Duck Pack & Track digital system helps customers’ quickly locate items they packed to move or that may be hidden in storage.

After purchasing labels, users should download the Duck Pack & Track app, which is available for Apple or Android.

A Duck Pack & Track label should be placed on a box, plastic bin or other smooth-surface container. Users are then required to scan the unique barcode; name the box and log its contents and location.

Duck brand said to log the contents, users should type the items manually or utilize the voice command to speak into the app.

Once users are ready to identify something stored away, they are required to speak or type the item needed into the app.

The box name and location will be provided. Users can even take and save photos of items they place in each container.

The Duck Pack & Track system, which comes with 40 labels, will be available at Walmart for $14.99.

ShurTech Brands markets do it yourself, professional and home & office consumer products under the Duck, T-Rex, FrogTape, Painter's Mate and Shurtape brands.

ShurTech Brands category manager Mary Kate Hearns said: "At Duck, in addition to caring about the packing and moving process, we also care about the storage and unpacking process, which are points of aggravation for many, especially when they're already dealing with the emotions of a new move.

"In fact, we discovered 78 percent of people find it very or sometimes frustrating to find items in household storage. We hope this innovative, smart solution is one way to help alleviate stress every step of the way."
