Reasons to Use Corrugated Boxes for Packaging


Corrugated or pleated cardboard has been used extensively for packaging purposes. There are many benefits in using this as a packing material both to the supplier and the customer. This has three layers that include two outer and one innerlayer. The fluting is the inner layer which contributes to the strength of the packaging.

The fluting of the corrugated box provides an extremely strong and stable structure for packaging. It is durable and you will be able to reuse the boxes for a long time as well. This is one of the reasons that it is used for wine box packaging. Wine bottles can be quite heavy and you need something that holds its shape well during transport. It is the middle layer that allows the box to retain its shape. The outer layer can be printed on allowing you to create unique designs and patterns that will catch the eye of new customers. Corrugated cardboard is a great option to transport fragile materials as it has a cushioning effect and provides good protection to the contents within. So if you plan to ship your products over a long distance where it will be handled many times, corrugated cardboard is an exceptional material to consider.

There are other types of protection provided by corrugated cardboard as well. In addition to physical strength, it can protect the content from bacterial growth. This is because it has a resistance to moisture. If you are transporting food items, bacterial growth is a significant concern and you will be able to minimise the risk by using corrugated cardboard. Packing your products in corrugated cardboard for shipping will help your budget as well. These boxes are lightweight and it will not put additional weight on the product and increase shipping costs. And sourcing these boxes is economical as well when compared to other packaging options on the market.

Corrugated cardboard is paper based and this gives it a lot of flexibility. You can easily store these boxes in a small space as they can be flat packed. You can also use it to transport a variety of materials whether it is food, clothing, electronics, stationery items etc. The list is truly endless. And the customer can also reuse the box for so many different purposes around the house. And this ties in neatly with its sustainability aspect. Because it is a durable material that can be used and stored in so many different ways, these boxes will not usually be thrown out by the customers. They will use it to store items in the house or to transport items on their own. And when the box can no longer be used, it can be sent for recycling. Many of the boxes you see are made out of recycled materials and you are helping the world by being a part of the cycle. Cardboard is also biodegradable so it will not harm the environment even if it ends up in a landfill. It will break down gradually without posing a risk to the environment.
