Smart Shipping Tip #3 – Double Boxing

Double Boxing. More Than Strength Protection

Most people double box items due to the increased stability and extra strength of additional packaging. This is the main reason for double boxing and saves thousands of packages every day from certain destruction.

Another reason for double boxing that gets overlooked is to prevent the contents of packages from getting stolen by puncturing and taking the contents. If items such as jewelry and other small parts are placed in a box, one way to get to them is to poke a small hole in the box and grab the contents. This can be done by using a thumb or box cutter. Double boxing the shipment helps to eliminate this type of loss. Don’t forget to add your return address, phone number, and tracking details on the inner box, too.
