The Importance of Reliable Packaging


Regardless of what you’re shipping, the packaging proves as important as the product when it comes to proper logistics. Even if you’re not shipping a fragile item such as glassware or an antique, proper packaging is critical to ensuring that your creation not only arrives, but arrives in the same condition you sent it out. For that reason, it’s critical that your packaging, containers, and dunnage is suited to exactly your needs. In today’s blog post, we’ll discuss how totes, shipping containers, and reusable packaging will minimize your costs of doing business and maximize your customer’s satisfaction.

Totes as Cost-Effective, Reliable Shipping Containers

Carter Associates’ Tuf-Totes are ideal for anyone looking to attain the most utility from their shipping containers while keeping costs to a low. Our corrugated plastic shipping totes are specifically designed with state of the art bonding equipment to create the most consistent, dependable products you can find.

Shipping Containers for Every Logistical Need

If you’re looking to expand your horizons beyond totes, however, we at Carter Associates provide a litany of other shipping containers for all your shipping needs. Aside from totes, we also offer sleeves, thermoformed packaging, and dunnage to secure your products through any length of travel. Our sleeves, for instance, are fully collapsible, stackable, and weather resistant, making it one of the best options for anyone looking for reliable packaging of large or large-quantity items. Moreover, our corrugated plastic sleeves are both lightweight and come with modifiable side walls that allow for both simple product loading/unloading and protection of any parts or products that you fear may come loose at any point in transit.

Reusable Packaging that Saves You Money

While selecting which packaging solution is best for you, it’s also important to keep in mind the reusability of each container. While we pride ourselves on the reusability of our packaging, it’s critical to consider the conditions that each type of packaging was created to withstand. Our structural laminates, for instance, are tailor made to offer state of the art weather proofing; by contrast, our corrugated plastic sleeves are idea for environments that will undergo a wide variety of temperature shifts, and have been field tested in temperatures ranging from -10°F – 160°F. Choosing which packaging solution best suits your environment and the environments you will be shipping to is critical to ensuring that you receive the highest return on your investment as possible.
