WHAT ARE SHIPPING BOXES?

Shipping boxes are essentially defined as cardboard containers used for the transportation of products from one point to another. These are usually made larger than most packaging options and are made of coarser but more durable materials that enable the box to hold its shape even when stacked for transit and to protect the contents within even through rough handling.

 

A product invented to keep up with the expansion of the global shipping industry during the Industrial Revolution, the first known corrugated cardboard shipping boxes were produced in the United States in 1871 to prevent the breakage of glassware during transport from artisan’s workshops to local merchants.
