Why Does Packaging like Corrugated Containers Exist

Corrugated containers were invented out of necessity. Human beings needed to find a way to ship their goods and they wanted them to arrive in the best condition possible. Brown Packaging has been a major player in the packaging industry and we value the work of all of our clients.

When mankind began to ship products long distances we invented packaging like wooden boxes and corrugated containers. This allowed our goods to survive long distances. As the distances continued to grow, innovations occurred that helped spawn the production of corrugated containers. Companies needed a cheaper way to ship goods and they needed a material that they could mass produce and that they could rely on to get the job done. Corrugated containers satisfied all of these needs. It was that cheap form of packaging that every company could use for their products. Corrugated containers could be made in large quantities for cheap and they performed well over long distances.

Once the use of corrugated containers caught on, there was no turning back. Every company that shipped mass consumer goods began to use them because they provided an immense increase to a company’s profit margins. The key to business is profit and corrugated containers helped achieve this.

Will We Ever See Corrugated Containers Replaced as the Mainstream Form of Shipping?

While it could happen, it looks as if corrugated containers are here to stay. The cost of manufacturing other forms of packaging continues to grow while corrugated cardboard remains affordable and reliable for all businesses.
