What is a shipping box?

A shipping box is, at the same time, a packaging made of corrugated fibreboard, whose bottom and lid form characteristic flaps that can be locked or secured with an adhesive tape. It is the shipping boxes that are most often referred to as “cardboard boxes”.

The most important feature of shipping boxes is their ease of assembly thanks to the fact that their two side walls are glued together in the production process. This type of packaging is delivered unassembled to occupy less space.

Shipping boxes are most often used as secondary packaging or in the transport of large-sized items (e.g. household appliances).

The type of shipping boxes offered by Packhelp is the FEFCO 201.
