5 Things to Look for When Buying Boxes for Your Business

When creating a company, you must develop your brand, a logo, your products, and how you will ship them. While branding is imperative to the success of your company, so are the boxes that you ship your products in.

The modern marketplace is extremely competitive and most of your competition is willing to undercut you to get a sale. With that in mind, it is becoming increasingly important for you to ship your products in high quality boxes.

But, what makes a good box? Here are 5 things to look for when sourcing boxes for your business.

1. Box Shape

This one goes without saying. Every product requires a specific type of box to ship it. If your product stacks nicely, classic rectangle corrugated boxes may be best for you.

If you are shipping a canned product, a corrugated tray may be the best option.

Corrugated boxes come in all shapes and forms and most packaging companies are ready to help you choose a box that perfectly suits your product.

2. Box Durability

Durability goes a long way in the world of shipping. No one remembers when their package arrives in its proper condition, but everyone remembers when they receive a damaged product.

When sourcing boxes for your business, you want to place a premium on durability and make sure that they will survive the rough shipping process.

The most important thing you can do is check the weight thresholds that the boxes are capable of withstanding and seeing how your specific box performs in an edge crush test.

 

3. Types of Lid / Seal

Some products require boxes with special flaps, lids, or seals. The average corrugated box is closed with traditional flaps that are taped shut.

However, other forms of boxes have overhead tuck tops, [...]

4 Reasons Why Quality Corrugated Boxes Still Matter in 2017

It may be 2017, but corrugated boxes continue to be one of the most important COGS purchases that a business can make.

Think about it, every day, boxes are used to ship millions of products across the world. Amazon, the world’s leader in online sales, shipped a staggering 1.6 million packages per day and around 608 million in 2016.

Your Reputation Ships with Your Corrugated Boxes

This may seem like a silly statement, but it is exactly the opposite. When you ship a product, your customers expect it to arrive on time and in good shape. If your products are arriving damaged because you elected to buy a large quantity of low quality corrugated boxes, your customers will shop elsewhere because they will assume that your products are cheap.

In 2017, you cannot afford to lose customers because you shipped your products in inferior corrugated boxes. Make sure you ship your products right the first time in order to avoid any embarrassing returns and disputes.

Free Advertising

When you ship products in corrugated boxes, you control the advertising medium. How many random boxes do you see in a given day? Probably a lot, and all of those boxes are decked out in free advertising for the company that shipped them.

Take advantage of this easy method of advertising by planting your company logo and contact details on all corrugated boxes you ship. Even after the boxes have completed their shipping lifecycle, they may still live on and be used by other people that need boxes for moving and storage, and the first thing they will see when they use your box is your company and products.

Do not underestimate the value of planting your brand in the subconscious of your customers. The [...]
