Storage Fix: Plastic vs Expendable
Plastic boxes will hold their shape better and are more protective. Usually, when cardboard is exposed to the elements, it is not a pretty picture. The cardboard gets wet and retains that moisture breaking down the fiber structure. It also becomes a harbor of mold. Now that the package is damaged, its useful life is over. Plastic boxes, although not waterproof until specified in your order, can withstand those elements and can even be suitable to be stored outside.
In the past customers appreciated the low cost of expendable packaging, but frequently had issues with product contamination, sometimes from the wooden deck of the truck and unsafe stacking, due to their non-rigid nature. Now, to optimize the supply chain and to generate significant savings, companies are seeking out returnable, reusable packaging.
Storing plastic corrugated boxes can be a breeze with the addition of anti-slip locking features. These will ensure that your stacked boxes are securely in place and able to safely stack higher than cardboard. This reduces workplace injuries and product damage.
