So whether you’re packaging small or large automotive parts, they’re probably oddly sized, fragile, and require a customized packaging solution to ensure they stay safe in transport.

Protect Your Parts with Custom Corrugated Boxes
These parts will need to be protected against empty spaces using dunnage (for example, packaging peanuts) padding, foam, bubble wrap, etc. In our earlier post, “Protective Packaging for Automotive Parts, ” we discusses the importance of protecting automobile parts during shipping using Fill-Air and Instapak Foam Fill to not only keep products safe, but also provide versatility, save warehouse space, increase the packaging process and enhance customer satisfaction.
Depending on the application and final destination, we can use a variety of materials and manufacturing techniques to create the best auto parts packaging solution for you including heavy duty custom corrugated boxes for all in-pack and transportation protection needs.
Custom sized boxes accommodate a wide variety of shapes and weights. Using the latest in computer software packaging design, we can easily determine the weight of a package given the weight of the part being shipped; likewise we are quickly able to calculate the strength of the corrugation. These specialty boxes can accommodate irregularly shaped products to ensure your parts stay safe and undamaged when it reaches the consumer’s hands.
