Why Use Corner and Edge Protection for Shipping?

Protective packaging serves various functions besides product protection, such as increased stability and stacking strength. When searching for which material to choose, consider paperboard packaging products.

These solutions offer many benefits compared to conventional cardboard edge protector options, including significantly less material. The customization and adaptability of these products allow us to provide solutions in various sizes, shapes and thicknesses to deliver the exact amount of protection you need.

Finding an effective packaging solution is one of the most critical elements in product manufacturing. Without the appropriate packaging, your product may arrive at your customer’s facility damaged, often resulting in additional return shipping costs and rework charges to replace the original item. Even when some standard cardboard packaging options seem to be enough, an extra layer of paperboard corner and edge protection goes a long way in providing the added security you need.

When you consistently deliver products that are clean and free from damage, you create a sense of loyalty with your customers that will strengthen over time. Also, by adding a custom-engineered corner or edge protection solution to your existing packaging, you’ll have peace of mind knowing you’ve taken the proper steps to reduce the amount of damage that can occur during transport.
