eCommerce packaging is a serious consideration for every business making online sales. This is true whether you’re a small business with an online shop or a large company shipping worldwide.
Online consumers expect deliveries to be effortlessly fast, arriving in a perfectly sized box with no unnecessary packaging. Of course, in practice, this can be difficult to achieve every time. For many businesses, the reality of eCommerce packaging includes not having the right box available or having more boxes than needed taking up storage just in case.
Finding the Right eCommerce Packaging Strategy For Your Business
The obvious strategy may be to bulk order cardboard boxes, but this choice doesn’t come without issues. Purchasing ready-made cardboard boxes can be expensive and the boxes themselves take up a lot of space on your premises. In addition to this, at times you may not have the right size or style of box to hand as and when you need it, causing delays to you and your customers. Alternatively, you could send a badly sized box filled with extra padding to avoid damaging the item inside. Unfortunately, this can cause irritation for the person receiving the package, not leading to a good first impression!
Having the right eCommerce packaging strategy in place is key for increasing your company’s efficiency and cutting costs while satisfying your customers with the perfect packaging. For many businesses, using a box making machine is a fantastic solution.
The Benefits of Box Making Machines for eCommerce
Box making machinery lets you select the type of box you require from a number of sizes and styles. This means you always get the best box for every delivery. Ideal for long or short production runs, box making machines make boxes quickly and accurately. In addition, you can easily store unmade boxes to free up space.
Box making machines also provide an easy way to brand your eCommerce packaging.

This means an investment in one of these machines is also an investment in consistently promoting your brand.
