Custom shipping boxes have been a staple of the packaging industry for decades. These boxes do their job well. They are sturdy and can stand up to repeated bumps and impacts and shield their contents from being destroyed. This makes them a cost-effective and lightweight way to ship items across town or across the country. While technological advances have changed many parts of the distribution and supply chain, these Custom cardboard boxes continue to serve as the industry standard for shipping.
Right-Sized Packaging Makes Good Financial Sense
Not only do the right-sized Custom shipping boxes make financial sense but they also make environmental sense. Boxes that are too large for the items they hold require additional packaging material so that the contents do not shift around and damage the contents.
Just think of how much added weight and paper consumption you are using and what you can save. Our experts at Heartland Packaging can help you generate significant cost savings for companies and can increase the environmental impact of their operations. By choosing Custom shipping boxes, companies can more easily manage packaging for a wide range of items while keeping the costs to a reasonable level.
Dimensional Weight Pricing
Just about all major freight carriers and package delivery companies now use dimensional weight pricing for their ground shipments. Also known as cube weight or volumetric weight, this pricing scheme penalizes companies that routinely ship items in large boxes regardless of the size of the contents. By making a small investment in a range of box sizes, manufacturers and distributors can reduce the cost of shipping via most major carriers in the United States.
Finding your package’s dimensional weight so you can make the most cost-effective shipping decision is an easy and economical practice.
