Large, fragile items, such as flat panel TVs, present many challenges when it comes to shipping. Damage and returns, high shipping costs, and write-offs are common. Box On Demand can improve product protection while reducing your shipping costs, adding to your bottom line. With fewer damaged goods, customer satisfaction is improved and returns savings are substantial.
Box On Demand equipment creates many different packaging styles to protect large items during shipment. Available features such as perforated creasing make assembly of protective packaging and inserts simple and quick.
How much are you losing in damages? Reduce your damage by switching to an overbox process using Box On Demand technology.
One of the most common overpacking solutions is a “box in a box”, where the product packaging is placed within a second protective shipping box. Typical styles used by BOD clients include:
- Exact fit overboxing: An outer box (typically of heavy double wall corrugated) fits directly over the original product packaging, improving structural rigidity and damage protection.
- Void fill overboxing: A shipping box larger than the product packaging is created and void fill (typically foam or cardboard inserts) is used to isolate the product packaging to the middle of the shipping carton.
- Two piece overboxing: Simplifies assembly for larger items where it would be difficult to reach in and place protective inserts. Half-slotted containers (HSCs), two-piece trays, or a combination of box styles are often used and typically banded together prior to shipment.
- Multi-pack overboxing: An item with many large or heavy pieces. Each is packed in its own protective packaging (typically corrugated) which is then packed into a larger container. The final package is tightly packed to minimize movement and increase protection of the entire shipment.
