Sometimes the question of how to package a product comes out as an afterthought. The product is produced and ready to go out to customers, and somebody finally says, “So how are we going to ship this?”

The simple yet amazingly durable carton carries countless products to their destinations -- and corrugated boxes just keep getting better. Part of the credit for this improvement goes to recent advances in methods for testing their strength.
As a warehouse manager, VP of operations, buyer, purchaser, or procurement official, you understand the critical importance of using strong packaging materials when shipping product to customers.
