Common Shipping Supplies Companies Use

Some companies send their products out to packaging companies to have them packed properly and shipped to their intended destination. The companies that receive the products for packaging and shipping are logistic companies. These companies have a long list of shipping supplies that they use in order to protect the products and lower the risk of damage during shipping.

One of the most important things when it comes to shipping supplies is boxes. Without cardboard boxes there would be no shipments and no way to know if the product will arrive safely or not. Boxes can be several different sizes depending on the type of product that is being shipped. Tape and a tape dispenser are also very important. Both of these things are vital in securing the box and reassuring that the products enclosed in the box are not broken during shipping.

Some companies require special types of paper wrapping materials in order to properly secure the product. For many food products, butcher paper or freezer paper sheets are used. Crinkle paper can be found in special gift boxes that can be for show, display, or resale. This type of paper can be found in an array of colors including white, navy, forest green, red, chocolate, burgundy, green, royal blue, yellow, purple, light blue, lime, and orange. Tissue paper is another form of wrapping materials that are used with some product packaging. There are different types of tissue paper. Some tissue paper is graded as gift paper or wrapping tissue. This type of wrapping material can also be found in a wide array of colors.

Wax paper is another material that is used by companies to ship product around the globe. Wax paper can be purchased in rolls or sheets according to the measurements needed. It can also be found in different lengths starting at one foot and going beyond four feet. The length and width of the most commonly used wax paper is 12 by 12. Although it’s not common to find shipping companies that use wax paper as an alternative to packaging, it can be beneficial in using with food or perishable items.

Logistic companies and other packing and reworking companies use hundreds of materials each day while doing their daily workloads. These materials determine whether or not the product will be tightly packaged. Depending on how the product is packaged for shipping, the risk of damage may decrease with certain types of materials.
