Wholesale Shipping Boxes for Chicago Businesses
Durable corrugated boxes are necessary for Chicago area businesses shipping heavy goods and bulk items. Corrugated boxes have better edge crush test ratings and resist more compression than standard shipping options. There are three types of corrugated boxes:
A single row of fluting pressed between two linerboards – standard for transporting lighter goods like shoes, hats, clothing, etc.
Two sets of fluting sandwiched between linerboards on each side – excellent boxes for shipping moderately-weighted items like books, glass bottles, paint cans, etc.
Three sets of fluting with each separated by linerboard – great for shipping smaller but heavy products like compressors, small motors, motorcycle parts, etc.
