Corrugated Boxes for Food Transportation
Safe B2B Transit for Food Products
Transit for your food products has never been safer or faster than when you get your packaging from Nelson Container. Using other corrugated (not cardboard) box manufacturers can leave your cupcakes squished, with frosting all over the packaging. Your frozen foods could thaw. The packaging could get soaked, and your foods could call out the bottom, all over the floor.
Packaging for Fragile Food Items
Our protective inner packaging ensures the most fragile items will arrive undamaged. Have a cold or frozen product in need of insulated packaging? No worries. We have many types of protective packaging for all purposes, including materials for insulation.
Custom Food Packaging Solutions
Our machine operators at Nelson Container are experts in their craft and can adjust production settings quickly to keep things cost-effective even with small volume orders and ensure fast turnaround times.
This gives smaller manufacturers the ability to ship their product effectively without having to pay bulk prices. We can create the exact size and shape of packaging that your small Wisconsin food production needs.
Easy to Read Labeling
Labeled boxes make it simpler for Wisconsin food products to ship accurately. Whether you ship high-value products or SKUs in low quantity, Nelson Container will produce labeled shipping cartons to keep your packages moving toward their destination.
As thought leaders, we understand that the new Nutrition Fact labels as directed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), may need an upgrade in your logistics labeling environment. This is why we offer packaging printing solutions in order to ease the supply chain's auto-identification and data capture (AIDC) requirements in order to create a leaner and more efficient manufacturing process in your Just-In-Time (JIT) environment.

On-Demand with QRM and VMI
Keep your fish fresh, eggs uncracked, and decorated foods safe absolutely anytime you need them with Nelson Container’s 24-hour average repeat order lead times. As a supplier, your goal is to meet clients’ demands for the product. Fast custom box production with quick response manufacturing (QRM) allows us to help your company retain clients, providing on-time package delivery with near-zero notice.
Holidays are one major predictor of customer demand. We help ease the holiday stress by having your packaging ready when you need it most.
How QRM Works
Quick response manufacturing uses LEAN and Just-in-Time practices applied company-wide to increase our ability to give you packaging when you need it. Well-rounded cells within Nelson Container work in coordination with each other to move our corrugated (or other material) packaging along the production lines and on to you. The key to our short lead times is communication and structure. QRM works best when given the information from vendor-managed inventory, so we know exactly when to start our productions.
How VMI Works
Vendor managed inventory gives us access to your product inventory. When you’re low on the packaging, we whip up a fresh batch. This prevents overstocking and clutter in your warehouses, increasing space for you to stock other items or increase production.
VMI keeps the entire supply chain moving smoothly, which keeps costs down, from suppliers through consumers. Again, the key is communication.
Let us know when you're starting to mix your cupcakes. As you complete the finishing touches, we'll have you ready to ship them to stores, birthday parties, and any other eagerly waiting mouths.
Food and Beverage Shipping Logistics, Simplified
One of the greatest challenges of food and beverage producers is how to safely and effectively transport their products. Corrugated cardboard containers have been the workhorse of the shipping industry since 1871. Producers in the Wisconsin Cheese Maker’s Association, Cargill Meat Solutions, and Lakefront Brewery all depend on reliable shipping containers to bring their products to stores.
Nelson Container has been providing companies in the Food and Beverage production industry with quality corrugated shipping supplies since 1962. Our protective inner packaging ensures the most fragile items will arrive undamaged and serves as quality box insulation.
