Whenever you receive a package in the mail, it is likely that it has been shipped in a corrugated box. Many people are always asking me why this is. Why are most of your packages always shipped in corrugated boxes? What is wrong with normal cardboard boxes for shipping items in and packaging items? Well, there are many reasons why corrugated boxes are superior to traditional cardboard boxes. One reason is it’s durability and strength. While traditional non-corrugated boxes are ok for packaging lightweight things such as cereal, things that are going to be transported across the country and have to hold heavy things such as TVs or furniture just to name a few, have to be strong and durable. This is why so many items are shipped in corrugated boxes rather than normal cardboard boxes. Also, another reasons is that corrugated boxes last longer when exposed to elements such as rain and snow than traditional cardboard boxes.
