Cardboard boxes are used in almost every business around New Zealand. They range in dimensions and are used for various tasks but are they being used to their full capacity?
Due to their ever-present nature in businesses they can often be over looked as a mere commodity item. Yet the truth is that we are heavily reliant upon these boxes but they are regularly not used efficiently. Some questions that need to be answered when you are choosing boxes are:
- What is the weight of the product?
- Will you need to layer your product inside the box?
- Is the product fragile or valuable?
- How is the box being transported?
- What are the internal dimensions of the box you require?
The inappropriate use of boxes can lead to increased expenditure, heightened material waste and brand damage. While finances can be developed, brand damage goes far beyond a monetary value and sometimes is not repairable.
Measuring the internal dimensions of your carton is an easy way to ensure you have a snug fit for your products. With the correct dimensions and carton type, products will be protected in the travelling process while ensuring that your product is delivered in a visually appealing format. The right carton saves you money by cutting out the need for extra protective packaging materials you normally would use to fill dead space.
Custom made cartons are an easy option Snell can provide. They can be customised to your specific needs and can vary in functionality depending on your industry. Whether you need a printed, custom fit box or a stock line carton speak to your Snell representative or our Customer Service Team for more information.
