What is the Purpose of Box Dividers?

Shipping a single product in a box is relatively easy. All that is needed is a box that the product fits into. There should also be room for packing material to keep the product inside of the box safe and undamaged. Once that has been done, the box can be closed and is ready to ship.

Fiber dividers can be made that allow the person packing the box to fit in objects that re not the same size and shape. The key is to be able to position the dividers in a way that allows this.

The objects in the box can also be stacked using the dividers. A divider placed on top of one set of products can provide the bottom for the next layer. All of this allows the contents of the boxes to be packed in a way that protects them from damage and that can keep them from moving around while in shipping and during the storage of the boxes. The use of fiber dividers gives the user a product that is stronger and gives even more protection than a lightweight piece of cardboard.
