Cartons for pallet shipping
All boxes that are suitable for shipping on pallets have at least one thing in common: When assembled, they fit flush with the outer dimensions of a Euro pallet. This is important because overhangs when loading a pallet lead to additional costs for the shipping company. Furthermore, the risk of transport damage increases with the size of pallet overhangs. To avoid this, BOXXCO offers suitable pallet boxes so that mail order companies do not have to worry about consequential costs when shipping pallets.
Depending on how heavy or fragile the goods to be transported are and how high the boxes are stacked on a pallet, 1-wall or 2-wall boxes are necessary. Single-wall pallet boxes are sufficient for light articles with small packaging units in terms of surface area and a manageable stacking height. The heavier, larger or higher an article and thus its outer carton, the more likely it is that double wall corrugated board will be used, which offers greater stability and cushioning properties compared to single wall cartons. There are no concrete limits in terms of weight specifications or sizes from which the recommendation for single wall or double wall boxes could be derived. The special features of shapes, materials and their properties of articles shipped on pallets are too great. If you need expert advice, please contact us at +49 35795 1797-10.
Properties and area of application
Not only the material or the size, but also the construction of a carton determines its suitability as a pallet shipping carton. Especially with cartons that cover the entire surface of a Euro pallet, ingenuity is required to ensure easy loading and unloading despite the large packaging. For this purpose, there are pallet containers with a fold-down loading flap on the long side of the box. This means that even small people can fill large boxes with goods without any problems. Another clever accessory in the area of pallet shipping, the pallet caps, prevent stacking of loaded pallets that should not be loaded. A small warning cone made of corrugated cardboard on a pallet indicates the fragile goods being transported and thus prevents transport Damage.
