Right solution in every case
Do you believe in magic? We do, and we believe that true magic lies in the powerful simplicity of everyday objects. Take for instance a cardboard box, or a case. One case can contain 24 cans of food, 4-gallon jugs, 15 bottles of soda, 12 bottles of wine or 10 video tapes. A Case can be big enough to accommodate a dram or a hectare and small enough to cover a milligram. Isn’t that magical?
Cardboard boxes have also one unique “power” – they can give us insight into the state of the economy through the cardboard box index. This index measures the manufacture of cardboard boxes to estimate consumer goods production and it acts as an industrial indicator. When more boxes are produced, there is probably a greater demand for consumer goods.
Only Amazon ships an average of 608 million packages each year, all packed in cardboard boxes. Apparently, cardboard boxes are favorite shipping and stacking solution and it is no surprise when we take into account their multiple advantages.
- Cardboard Corrugated Boxes are lightweight and very convenient to handle while packaging, loading, and unloading.
- The raw material required to fabricate Corrugated Cardboard Boxes is rather cheap, which makes these boxes highly affordable comparing to the other available alternatives in the market.
- Corrugated Cardboard Boxes have better printing and graphics capabilities and as such, they can be used as effective marketing tools for brand awareness and promotion.
- Corrugated Cardboard Boxes are available in various shapes, sizes, designs, and colors. This is a real advantage because needs can be very diverse and so should be the Packaging Solution.
- They are very easily available in almost any given region being a widespread worldwide business.
- Most importantly, Corrugated Cardboard Boxes are completely recyclable in nature that makes them eco-friendly.
What are the differences between corrugated box, a folding carton, and a setup box?
- A corrugated box is made of corrugated fiberboard and it is used as a shipping container. These boxes are rated according to the strength of the material or the capacity of the finished box and are most commonly used to transport and warehouse products during distribution. A shipping container made of corrugated fiberboard is sometimes called a “cardboard box”, a “carton”, or a “case”.
- A folding carton (sometimes called a box) is fabricated from paperboard which is printed (if necessary), die-cut and scored to form a blank. These are used to package a wide range of goods, they are transported and stored flat, and are erected at the point of filling.
- A “set-up” box is made of stiffer paperboard, permanently glued together with paper skins that can be printed or colored. These are assembled at the point of manufacture and transported already “set-up”, which differentiate them from folding cartons. Set-up boxes are more costly than folding boxes and are usually used for protecting valuable products such as cosmetics, watches or smaller consumer electronics.
Whatever the product may be, there is no doubt that at some point it will be packed and shipped in a case. The larger the demand for your product is – the more cases you need! With the rise of the demand, there is also a rise in potential savings in terms of time and money. All these savings begin with a good packaging line, so make sure to check out case packers by Tishma Technologies. Combined with our Tetristack robotic palletizer or integrated with some other robotic add-ons, we believe they are the right packaging solution for you – whatever your case may be.
