This type of packaging is versatile, cost-effective, allows for customization, and lends itself to product protection during shipping.
The corrugated box also factors into today’s economy, with 394.8 billion square feet of corrugated (31.9 million tons of containerboard) produced by U.S. paperboard mills in each year, according to a Fibre Box Association Annual Report.
With environmental impact concerns and process optimization primary considerations for the supply-chain environment, companies are making strides in using the minimum amount of packaging at the lowest possible cost to meet their sustainability goals.
