?!?!?!?
My 6 can order is arriving tomorrow. Your pic appears to be lame and wasteful packaging. They should of shrink wrapped a six pack of cans together and used one box.

My cats would love that. Amazon delivery day is their favorite because they get a new box to try. That many boxes would last them weeks before they were all recycled.

When the wrapping and shipping costs more than the soup...

At least it came with individual, disposable, soup bowls (the boxes).

It's my fault. The last time Amazon shipped me dented cans, I told them that they needed to put cardboard dividers between the cans like beer bottles have. But the Amazon employees must have been playing email tag and it got interpreted by their shipping department that each can must be divided into a separate box. Apologies to Captain Planet!

Now, are there any soups on sale I can order to see how many boxes I can get? @Thatdealguy has a thread saying he needs cheap shipping supplies. This should do nicely.

I mean... each can is technically divided now...
The 3 things they do have to protect items (packing peanuts which I haven't seen in a while, paper, and air pillows) won't protect multiple cans per shipment so this is the best compromise they have.
I highly doubt they'll get actual cardboard dividers since they're pretty niche in terms of use cases.

Personally I can't figure out why they even have canned goods.
I have to wonder how much money they're making after boxes and shipping, especially when shipping like this.

For all you guys wondering what happened

Amazon's shipping is run entirely by software - the software tells the warehouse guy how to pick the product and how to pack. there's no way the individual warehouse employees can fix it. that's done at the software/developer level. no human is dumb enough to do this - it's the software calculating how things how are supposed to be shipped and the humans carry it out according to their instructions.

it's a bug in the system; or some human put overrides into the system and gunked it all up. either way it's a mistake at the software level.

it's not a small operation where the shippers decide what they can do. i think there's an option to report how the packaging was on their site to help improve how it'll be done in the future.
