Packaging Material And Its Relevance To Logistics

by Michael Kotendzhi | Warehousing, Logistics

When a 3PL Logistics provider offers the service of packaging, the material of the packaging material is vital in choices. The proper packaging renders the security and the durability to the products until it arrives at the end-users safely without any deficiency.

What is Flute? 

The most common packaging boxes are the carton or cardboard boxes because of flute, a material contained between the box boards that are wavy shaped that can hold out against pressure and higher endurance.  The thickness of the flute can be various in making, depending on the stipulations of each product.  Moreover, it determines how much damage the box can endure and how high the box can be stacked.

​Corrugated Boxes

Corrugated boxes are so far the best durable packaging boxes that can withstand higher pressure since they contain larger flutes to make them sturdier and stronger. Most of the corrugated boxes come with a standard A-flute that is around 0.25 inches which is the thickest available right off the shelf in the market. The boxes can be recyclable which is one of the largest factors as well as why they are commonly used in logistics, especially in Vancouver, British Columbia, where recycling is strongly enforced by law.
