Supply chains and corrugated

29 Apr 2024

Corrugated plays a vital part in global supply chains. It can protect product and position manufacturers and distributors as sustainable and responsible when they choose corrugated over other harder to recycle materials.

Lightweight and sturdy, it is used in many innovative ways to protect, ship, and sell products across all transport mediums, road, rail, air, and sea.

Correctly designed it can be a hugely effective way of shipping products safely and maximising how space is utilised ultimately saving shipping and transportation costs.
In addition, corrugated can help to mitigate the pressure that supply chains are under to become more efficient and sustainable, reducing fuel consumption and associated costs.

“Supply chains are extremely complex, and having the correct packaging can have a pivotal impact on the success that supply chain has,” said Jennifer Riddell, Managing Director, Boxshop. “Perhaps the most important thing to achieving that success is working with a team of corrugated professionals who understand how to support each requirement from individual pack solutions to shipping solutions and what the packaging needs to deliver.”
