Were they all on the same order?

 

If so,  let them know, it tends to indicate that something with their ordering and dispatch software is very borked

I'm going to guess from a supplier; MA tend to use own-brand boxes and packing tape.

True, no Mighty Ape identifiable packing tape or logos on the boxes.

 

But it was all one order.

 

Synnex NZ is on the packing slip.

 

Thank goodness the recycling gets picked up this week.

Yup, HP have done that as well :D

 

I had a license arrive from HP years ago in a massive cardboard box (well, for a piece of paper it was massive).  Was probably freighted from AU or somewhere as well....

Sanity has prevailed!

 

 

13 cables in one appropriately sized box. This one had Mighty Ape logo and packing tape.

OTOH some of their packaging is art.

 

 

 

I bought a new iMac Pro last year and the box it came in was such a perfect piece of origami. Amazing design.
