Products across the globe generally have unique qualities that create the need to be packaged for protection and/or containment. This concept helps deliver products to the end user so an “out of the box experience” takes place once received by the customer. The satisfaction your customers engage in combined with the lasting experience your package provides will create the ultimate appetite for repeat business!
Although there are many viewpoints when it comes to packaging, the one thing most companies have in common are brown shipping boxes, made out of corrugated fiberboard. From the mid 19th century to present day, this corrugated box application has been providing protection to products and is continuously showing signs of industry growth. Corrugated provides strength and versatility in any mode of transportation, but understanding the amount of strength for your product becomes the underlying concern. While corrugated has been the work horse of the packaging industry for about 150 years, is it the right material for your products?
