There are many different types of ecommerce packaging. What works best for you will depend on the products you’re shipping. It’s always best to tailor your packaging to your products. We’ll take a look at some of the most common types of packaging, but if you have any questions, always feel free to reach out to the Korpack team. As a leading packaging company, we’re can provide expert ecommerce packaging advice.
Corrugated boxes are among the most common type of ecommerce packaging. Made of thick, durable corrugated “cardboard”, corrugated boxes are able to withstand the rigors of the shipping process. Corrugated boxes are made of three layers of kraft materials, two liner boards and a corrugating medium in the middle.
Corrugated boxes come in many sizes and can quickly be branded. If you ship products and orders that vary in size, you’ll want a wide selection of corrugated boxes. It’s best to match boxes closely to the size of your products to cut down on waste and shipping costs.
Roll end corrugated boxes are a type of corrugated box. While many corrugated boxes are taped together, a roll end corrugated box has special hinged flaps that are fitted into the box to seal it shut. These boxes require much less tape (usually just a few small pieces to secure it).
These stock boxes are also very popular. These boxes feature flaps that are equal in length with at least two of the flaps meeting in the middle to close the box. Regular slotted containers are usually best for lighter products. They come in a huge range of sizes and you can brand them if so desired.
As with corrugated boxes, it’s best to have a variety of sizes on hand. This way, you can select boxes that match your products.
Similar to regular slotted boxes, full overlap boxes feature two flaps that completely cover the top of the box, meaning the flaps don’t meet in the middle. This results in a sturdier box, making it a better choice for heavy or fragile items.
A roll end tuck top box, or RETT Box for short, features a lid with flaps that fit inside of the box. This creates a tight seal and offers more strength than a similar flap topped box. However, there is a serious downside: RETT boxes are not as secure as roll end boxes. You can use more tap to secure them, of course, but a roll end box may be a better choice.
