How to pack large items?
While it’s important to take proper packaging precautions when shipping any item, larger products require special attention. There are a variety of issues that can make it difficult to ship large products, and these need to be addressed when choosing your packaging.
Wood or corrugated?
Hybrid crates consisting of both corrugated board and wood can help to reduce costs without compromising protection, even with relatively large top load weights. For certain items and specific journeys, we can create a sturdy wooden base and use corrugated fibreboard for the sides (sleeve) and top. Sometimes a plywood panel is used to provide additional stability. Another solution is to reinforce a corrugated board construction with wooden slats placed around it as an additional frame.
Lightweight & durable
Heavy duty corrugated board is the most lightweight solution for this kind of application and is very durable. For one-way shipping concepts, it is the most cost-efficient and space and resource-saving material for packing and shipping goods. Overall, it is the most customisable and easy-to-handle solution. Nevertheless, identifying the type of packaging that best fits your needs requires an analysis of your product, distribution complexity, relevant climate zones and mode of transport.
The load factor
Corrugated board is fully customisable and, even within standard dimensions, can help to increase the number of items shipped in the same space, so that it can tap the full potential of possible freight cost reduction. Corrugated is also a sensible solution for particularly heavy items because with other materials the maximum gross weight is often reached before the container is full, which rules out stacking. Thanks to wet strength gluing of the board, in sea freight applications, corrugated solutions retain the structural integrity of the packaging over a period of weeks in moist climates and when exposed to condensation.
