Packaging is a fundamental part of logistics in an online store, especially e-commerce boxes. Once the sale is made, the main interest is that the products reach their destinations in perfect conditions. Hence, the package should have the maximum protection. In addition, of course, to offer a good image. Whether we just start an online business or we take time in it, we will use some practical criteria to choose the packaging of the online store.
What are you selling?
You know that it is very different to send clothes than bottles of wine or a bicycle. It’s a matter of volume and weight. Also the value and fragility of the product. These are characteristics that all of them need the resistance of the packaging.
What protection and identification do you need?
Please also take into account the additional packaging that is required inside the e-commerce boxes (filling, padding, protection). Also outside the box (identification, warning, etc.). These are all necessary things to prepare a safe shipment.
Where do you send it?
A national shipment is not the same as an international shipment, in which the journey is longer and more complicated. You will also have to know the path of the package: if it is subject to a humid environment or will have sudden changes of temperatures. When in doubt, it is best to always choose sturdy cartons.
How will they treat the package?
Likewise, it depends on how the package is handled: it can receive blows, crushing or more. In Abco Kovex we always advise using a suitable packaging for the type of product you’re shipping. Hence, reinforced by outside and inside, to avoid breakage or damage.
Classes of cartons for e-Commerce
Products are of various kinds or large quantities. This is a factor that complicates the choice of the box and also the frequency of shipments. Therefore, if you send one or several units, the packaging will be different and even if you send products of different weight, shape and size.
Custom e-commerce boxes are often required for each product, but there are also more flexible resources that fit your shipments. Ask us and we will give you the most appropriate solution. Of course, avoid whenever you can, what is called overpackaging, that is, excess packaging raises costs and gives a bad image.
