Packaging Helps Protect Packages

Packaging Helps Protect Packages

By on Dec 11, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

South Africa has one of the highest crime rates in the world, so there is little surprise that packages are regularly pilfered when shipped to and from the country. Amazon, one of the globe’s largest e-commerce sites, stalled their shipping service to South Africa through the South African Post Office because of the high rates of theft and fraud back in 2008. The only way a person can safely ensure that their product or package is safely transported to and from South Africa is through express courier, a service that Amazon and many other internationally based e-commerce and online retail/shipping businesses offer. However, the cost of such a service is more expensive than regular shipping, and not by any small margin. So how else can we ensure that our packages are safe for general shipping? The easiest way to ensure safe shipping is to properly package your parcels using the finest quality packaging materials. A package that has been properly secured with packaging tape is less likely to be opened. Those looking to pilfer from packages will usually look for weaknesses in the package. A package that is not properly taped with packaging tape will have open flaps that are exposed. Make sure that packaging tapes cover all joints and gaps of the corrugated cardboard box. Ensure that you use high quality corrugated cardboard boxes for all packages that are to be shipped. A new cardboard box with double, corrugated support will dissuade theft because marks, abrasions and cuts will be easily noticed. Not only will plastic sheeting ensure that your product is provided an additional layer of protection, but it will also be an additional level of packaging that thieves are expected to open. Thieves have very little time to open the package and steal the items within, so plastic wrapping will just prolong the process, and will likely dissuade the thieves.

How Long Will My Corrugated Cardboard Box Last?

How Long Will My Corrugated Cardboard Box Last?

By on Dec 4, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

We use corrugated cardboard boxes for a number of different functions. From helping us store office items, to assisting us in the delivery of packages, corrugated cardboard boxes have many uses. But after using cardboard boxes are we expected to throw them away? How long is a cardboard box meant to last? How do I look after my corrugated cardboard boxes so that I can use them again and again? We may be able to help you with a few of these questions. If you buy a high-quality cardboard box then it’s more likely to last longer. Make sure you source a professional corrugated cardboard supplier (like Design Packaging & Tapes) instead of reusing old cardboard boxes used by retail stores in their delivery of goods. Yes, cardboard boxes are designed to be reused. Cardboard boxes are pretty environmentally friendly as they break down easily when exposed to the elements, but that’s no reason to feel good when throwing them out. Store your corrugated cardboard boxes and you can reuse them for all sorts of things from storing items to making shelves. Make sure you remove old tape from corrugated cardboard boxes by using a sharp craft knife rather than ripping off the tape with your hands. This will only damage the box. Store your cardboard boxes in a cool, dark and dry location and you should be able to use a corrugated cardboard box for many years. If a cardboard box is damaged, consider getting it replaced rather than reusing it. A damaged box can fall apart, spilling the items within and causing even more damage. If you require a quality corrugated cardboard box supplier, contact Design Packaging & Tapes today, and we can get you a quote in no time at all, and we’ll deliver our durable boxes right to your...
