However, it is also a great option to package delicate items of any kind that need extra considerations throughout the shipping process.

Custom Molded Pulp Packaging 101

Constructed of recycled paper and corrugated cardboard, molded pulp packaging becomes a lightweight, shape-holding, and shock-absorbing layer between your product and the outer wall of the corrugated box. The packaging is very efficient in regard to space and also is versatile, as it continues to evolve to meet the needs of the packaging industry.

This type of packaging is eco-friendly and can be recycled again after its life cycle. In three words, molded pulp packaging basically saves money, time, and space.

Here’s a quick breakdown of the benefits that molded pulp packaging by CS Packaging offers:

1. Affordable 

In every business, time is money. Investing in molded pulp packaging will save time from the first to the last step due to decreasing the labor involved in packaging your goods. 

Molded pulp packaging is designed to nest within itself to maximize items per truck and decrease storage. This saves you time in transportation and the packaging process.

2. Time

Molded pulp packaging is made from recycled materials, making it an affordable option. Molded pulp is formed into specific shapes which eliminates the assembly process and in turn, saves you money.

Molded Pulp packaging can be standardized to maximize value for years to come. Once the tooling is made for your specific product, the item cost remains low.
