Corrugated In The Produce Industry
Corrugated containers are used to ship fresh produce all the way from the growing field, through the distribution system, to rest directly on retail shelves. For decades the corrugated box has been the best shipping container choice for produce growers and packer/shippers. Today, it is the proven best shipping container for everyone in the distribution chain, including distribution centers and retailers. Research continually demonstrates corrugated's superior product protection, cost efficiency and shipping density for a variety of different produce commodities.
Grower-shippers have long appreciated corrugated for its low cost, ease of use, exceptional product production, high shipping density and color graphics used for brand identification. Its custom design allows optimal protection for each commodity, and there are plenty of corrugated box suppliers to choose from.
While many of these features are important to retailers, they are also looking for a container that will improve operational and merchandising efficiency throughout the entire distribution system. Corrugated containers meeting the industry's new Corrugated Common Footprint Standard
can answer those needs better than any other container can.
