Big-name brands and the companies behind them might get a great deal of media coverage but they often lack a crucial element that a family-owned business excels in: trust. Express Packaging is a family-owned business that has offered quality boxes for companies of all sizes for more than 30 years.
With the rise in shipping logistics, companies are looking for new ways to cut corners in order to improve profit margins. Especially if you have smaller products, reconfiguring your corrugated boxes will save space in the trucks and a decent amount of expenses overall. Since most packages are shipped in bulk, it is now ideal to utilize your space more efficiently to save a significant amount in the long-term.
From small e-commerce businesses to retail giants, the delivery and presentation of an item may be just as important as the item itself. A plain, cardboard box with packing peanuts is not unexpected but it provides an empty experience for the user. Unfortunately, many online companies are still using old-fashioned methods of packaging and are not capitalizing on creating a unique customer experience.
Close to 100 Billion boxes are produced and used each year within the United States. That’s a lot of boxes that companies and individuals are purchasing in order to send packages to various destinations throughout the globe. The question that remains in the face of this staggering statistic is, “have you begun to reduce your package waste and costs, or are you still spending too much money on shipments?”
Most people just refer to boxes as cardboard boxes, but there is a difference from an industrial perspective. Chipboard boxes and corrugated boxes are very common in the industry and have different applications. Let’s examine both types so that you may determine which one your business needs.
The growth of the e-commerce market has been a mostly positive development for everyone involved. However, this growth comes at the price of an increase in waste. Businesses and consumers can enjoy the benefits of e-commerce while still taking precautions to rescue and recycle as much material as possible.
Why Flexographic Printing Is Right For Your Packaging Needs
While cutting-edge digital technology has changed the way we do business in every conceivable way, sometimes tried and true is better.
Why An Overlap Slotted Container May Be Right For Your Packaging Needs
For the vast majority of packaging applications, the standard “Half Slotted Container” (HSC) is the right choice. It’s sturdy, fast to fold into place, and it’s sealed with a quick swipe of the tape gun. But what about those instances where you need something a little more robust? Enter the “Overlap Slotted Container” (OSC) and its variation, the “Full Overlap Slotted Container” (FOL).
A Sturdy Box That’s Slightly Different From The Regular Slotted Container
Every box design serves a purpose and sometimes many. The half-slotted container (HSC) is no exception to this rule. In one of our previous posts, we talked about the most familiar and widely used type of cardboard container — the regular slotted container (RSC). It’s the kind with equal-sized flaps — both on top and bottom — that meet without overlapping. Similar to the RSC, the half-slotted container has the same kind of bottom flaps. But it’s also significantly different.
Sturdy corrugated cardboard boxes have so much potential for reuse, repurposing and recycling that it’s a shame to send them to the heap of lost opportunity known as the landfill.
