Cardboard boxes increase shipping cost
In the article published in Packaging Digest, the prominent internet portal in the field of packaging in North America; The perishable materials used in the packaging of unit loads arriving at a distribution center can be damaged by up to 11 percent, even just because of the temperature and humidity imbalance. With the effect of heat and humidity, the structure of cardboard boxes deteriorates by 30 percent in the first 40 days of storage. Higher humidity levels affect the structure of cardboard boxes to a greater extent. It is seen that corrugated cardboard type cardboard boxes are 95 percent weaker at 50 percent humidity than 71 percent humidity. Due to their unstable structure, cardboard boxes that cannot be stacked to fill the trucks at full capacity cause the trucks to travel a long distance.
