Triple-Wall Corrugated Packaging for B2B Shipping
Nelson Container designs and manufactures custom, triple wall corrugated boxes for virtually any application—from containers for shipping heavy engine parts to display bins for pumpkins. Our triple wall corrugated boxes offer the strength of wood crates at significant cost and weight savings. If you’re shipping or storing high-value, large, heavy or delicate products of any kind, consider triple wall corrugated boxes.
The strength and cushioning properties of a triple wall corrugated box is determined by the flute profiles used. The combination of differently sized flutes (those wave-shaped arches in between the linerboards) can be customized to maximize the cushioning properties and/or compression strength of a finished box.
Whatever type of fragile or heavy objects you ship, we can design and build a corrugated box with protective foam inserts to ensure safe transit or storage. Oversized items? No problem. Thanks to “The Beast,” our jumbo corrugated folder/gluer machine, we can create custom packaging for almost any jumbo-sized product you need to ship.
Vendor Managed Inventory Services Keep You Stocked and In Business
There’s an increasing trend toward Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) services, particularly for businesses that need to respond to varying demand. In tandem with our quick response manufacturing capabilities, vendor managed inventory enables you to meet the often unpredictable seasonal demands for your products.
If the products you ship require the same packaging and/or your packaging needs fluctuate on a seasonal basis, you are a good candidate for VMI. As soon as your inventory of boxes reaches a critically low level, a usage report is automatically generated and we send out a new shipment. You’ll never again be caught off-guard with no boxes for shipping. You even have the option of getting your boxes pre-assembled, so there’s no time wasted putting them together.
Products We Regularly Create Containers for:
- Medical equipment
- MRI machine parts
- Computers and monitors
- Food (perishable and canned goods)
- Glass and products made of glass
