Why do people use corrugated cardboard for shipping?

As a business owner, you will know how important it is for your products to be protected and arrive safely when being shipped to your customers. You will likely have experienced the frustration of receiving a package that is damaged, broken, or not in the condition you expected to receive it in. 

When transferring goods no matter how far the journey may be, a robust, strong, and durable material is crucial for protection.

By choosing a packaging solution that is suited to your requirements, you can minimise the risk of damage during transport, save yourself the inconvenience of processing replacements due to damaged goods, but also significantly reduce your packaging costs.
The effect damaged goods can have on your company's reputation can be detrimental to the future of your business.

Corrugated cardboard is a popular choice when it comes to choosing packaging for transport and shipping, due to its strength and durability. You will find that a whole array of products are shipped in corrugated cardboard boxes from; food, fragile items, toys, health and beauty products to medical and hazardous materials.
