The strength of a cardboard box comes from two sources. One is the weight (density) of the cardboard, determined by the length and numbers of virgin pulp fibers. The other factor is in the quality of the flute design.


Oriented strand board (OSB) is one of the strongest composite boards used in boxes and crates, providing excellent protection for shipped goods. OSB comprises sheets of thousands of 3- and 4-inch wood strands coated with resin glue, creating a common grain that gives the material strength and durability.


If you are not sure what you need exactly, our professionals will help. We will gather data on numbers of items, per item and total weight, size of your product, shipping and storage methods, and other key information. With these facts in place, we can offer sound advice on which containers will meet your needs.


Are you looking for something a little more secure than packing peanuts and tissue paper to secure your products during shipping? You may want to consider using polyethylene or polyester foam inside.


Do you ever look at the typical boxes offered for shipping and wonder how you’ll ever manage to get your item to its destination safely? Let’s talk about what your need to ship and how we can offer you a custom solution.


Did you know that many plywood shipping containers can be reused? Plywood boxes and crates with standard or detachable tongues can be reused up to 20 times, while returnable shipping containers can be reused as many as 100 times or more.


Different wood pulps are better for different applications. For example, softwood pulp, such as those from pine or spruce trees, have long fibers that give paper strength. This pulp is usually used to make the liners for corrugated cardboard.


Did you know that corn and potato starch packing peanuts can improve your company's environmentally friendly packing and shipping efforts? These types of peanuts are affordable, effective, durable and completely biodegradable.


Every cut seam on the box adds an additional possible breaking point. That's why, when packaging engineers design corrugated boxes, they design them as a single piece with only one glued seam. Before this is glued or folded, it's called a "box blank."


When you ship breakable or oddly shaped objects using conventional shipping methods, you take a huge risk that that item may get damaged or broken. Instead, have a customized crate built specifically for your object and shipping needs.


While cardboard boxes had been around for a number of years, the demand for them as storage or shipping containers was somewhat limited. Their production began to skyrocket, however, when the Kellogg company began using them to package and ship their cereals.


Building your own commercial boxes and crates means diverting labor from the manufacture of your product, and utilizing space to maintain an inventory of lumber, plywood, nails and tools, and the finished containers that otherwise would be dedicated to your primary business.


Overloading shipping boxes and containers is a problem on several fronts. First, burst strength is compromised. Second, if they are stacked, the edge crush ratings of those containers beneath the overloaded container are negatively affected. It is better to use two boxes or a box with a greater load capacity.


If your company needs to protect the privacy of its merchandise during shipments, opaque shrink wrap is an affordable and effective shipping solution. Opaque shrink wrap will prevent shipping items from being seen or read without increasing shipping costs.


It’s important to remember that what you put inside a box to protect your items is just as important as what you’re shipping. When you want your customers to be greeted with professional packaging, we’re always up to the task.


Do you ever visit trade shows or conventions for your business? If you have a display, shipping it can be a more cost effective and convenient option than trying to lug it through the airport during your travels.


Most cardboard boxes are made in a single piece, then made into a loop by pasting the edged together. That edge is called the "manufacturer's joint," and is usually joined by heavy-duty adhesive to make sure the box stays intact.


All container manufacturers will provide empty made-to-order boxes and crates to businesses for self-packing. However, shipping experts suggest consulting the manufacturer for advice on do-it-yourself packing depending on the size and nature of the product being transported.


If your manufacturing company is producing extended runs of a unique item, our professional team will work with you to make sure enough shipping containers are available so that your product can be sent on time.


When it comes to commercial shipping, you have plenty of options. You can either drop off your items and have them crated/boxed there, or instead have them packaged on site.


Corrugated boxes usually have flaps on the top and bottom, but can only have one set of flaps. These are called "Half Slotted Containers," or "HSL boxes." They can be used for carrying things or as part of telescoping boxes.


Even though the artwork itself that hangs in your office may not be worth much, remember to consider how you'll ship the frame it's in during your move. Using the correct kind of shipping crate can keep your frame looking new.


To make corrugated cardboard, the machine starts with two grades of paper. The fluted paper is steamed to moisten it and make it flexible, then run through geared wheels. This is then pressed to one of the outer liners, then the other side is added to seal in the fluted paper.


Closure conditions are used to describe the manner in which a box or crate will be closed. Closure conditions may also indicate the type of fastener used on the final panel, and how the container will be loaded.


Did you know that bubble wrap, the shipping product that people love to pop, was originally conceived as a wall decoration? Bubble wrap was initially invented as textured wallpaper by its creators Marc Chavannes and Al Fielding in the late 1950s.


While bubble wrapping can be used to protect your merchandise during shipments, it must be used correctly to provide effective protection. To wrap an object in bubble wrap, make sure the top, bottom and all sides are protected with the wrap.


Did you know that, in 2006, the Georgia Aquarium received two male and two female whale sharks through the mail? Shipping the sharks involved the use of a B-747 transport airline to get them from Taiwan to Georgia, with a brief stop in Alaska.


There are many factors to consider in determining whether it is more cost-effective to have your employees build shipping containers versus purchasing them. Cost of labor, space utilization, and inventory needed to build containers are three of the major considerations that factor into the equation.


Corrugated cardboard for boxes is all made on a single machine called a "corrugator." These machines perform several different operations one after the other, and are capable of turning out corrugated cardboard at a rate of 500 feet per minute.


Do you ever feel like a simple corrugated cardboard box would work for shipping your item if only it came in more sizes? You may want to consider whether custom cardboard boxes would be most cost effective.


There are some items that deserve better packaging than what you can purchase at the post office. Whether you need to ship a family heirloom or your company’s new prototype, we’re always ready to create a custom solution.


Do you have an item that simply won't fit safely using standard packaging supplies? Consider have a custom shipping crate or box built for your object to provide a shipping environment that's both economical and safe.


Cardboard boxes may seem simple, but a surprisingly large amount of thought went into them. Specially trained packing engineers design the material and layout of cardboard boxes and other packaging to make sure it's strong enough for the job.


Bubble wrap has been used for many purposes other than shipping packages. Brides have walked down the altar dressed in it, gardeners have protected their garden plants with it, and it has even been put on display in prestigious art museums.


Although the U.S. Government stopped publishing standards for wood packaging years ago, American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards now in place virtually mirror the old government standards. However, the emphasis is now on packaging efficiency rather than meeting particular specifications.
