Business to business, business to end user, if the package does not arrive in good shape, the business has a problem. Damaged packaging means unsaleables, unusables, and unacceptables. It means returns from unhappy customers, it tests customer loyalty, and it costs businesses billions every year. In these days, the internet offers new options and opens new doors. It also increases the demand for immediate and improved service. A supply chain depends on seamless operation, and logistics demands the best in delivery systems. After all, end users do not really care who is at fault when their product arrives in damaged condition. Every link in a supply chain has its own cost. And, each of those costs add to the price of the final product. Competitive businesses feel they are already working close to the bone, and their margins take a direct hit with every damaged container. The container may hold boxes of dry goods, fresh food, electronics and peripherals, glass or other breakables, or any of the goods that feed the economy. Corner boards provide protective support to containers during storage, handling, and shipping. And, the following explores their make-up, applications, and values to originating business and end user customer.
Many companies in fact use the wrong size of corner board. Using boards that are too large yields unnecessary waste while too small does not provide the proper level of protection for the product being packaged. Angleboard is an innovative solution to safeguard shipments both in and out of transit. When sized correctly, it works to protect the stretch film surrounding the load, packaging of the product and the product itself. Furthermore, it not only protects the corners of packaged product, but also adds structural strength to the pallet for stacking purposes.
