4. Crash Lock eCommerce Boxes
Crash lock boxes are commonly used in the eCommerce sector as they provide one of the fastest and efficient forms of manual packaging assembly. Assembled in one quick action, the base of the box automatically interlocks without the need for tape or adhesives, reducing packing and assembly time and providing cost savings. Boxes can be adjusted to the content's height, minimising void fill, and are 100% recyclable and sustainable.
5. Multi-Depth – Adjustable eCommerce Boxes
Minimise your packaging inventory by using multi-depth eCommerce boxes which adjust in size to perfectly fit your shipping needs. Multi-depth boxes are cleverly designed with multiple creases/pre-made scores on the sides of the box allowing you to adjust the size. By simply folding down the crease at your desired height and tearing/down the corners, you can quickly create your own custom-size packs.

7. Retention eCommerce Boxes
Retention packs securely fixes goods within a pack by using only paper-based materials such as corrugated inserts, hexacomb fitments or self-sealing paper pack.
