Amazon Maintains Equilibrium, Sends Out Comically Under-Packaged Boxes Too


We are glad to see that, in an effort to keep things consistent across their global retail operation, Amazon is also comically under-packaging some boxes. Reader EG’s box of light bulbs bumped their way to his house, and he is not pleased. 

He writes:

Everyone has been talking about Amazon and how they over packed their boxes. Here is an example of under packing. For heaven’s sake, there were light bulbs in this box! But they only put 3 bubbles of packing material in a very large box. Things were sliding all over and knocking about! I guess they wanted to make up for the boxes that they over packed.

At least our readership is at equilibrium in the last 24 hours.
