Custom Designed

Packaging Today

We don’t only make boxes; we protect your investments. It's our job to make sure your goods are transported from business to business without any damage or delay. We take that job seriously, and ship out orders from our facilities at least once every day, shipping quality single-wall, double-wall, and triple-wall packaging to our business partners within 24 hours of order placement.

Your product gets where it’s going without being harmed by the elements. Ask yourself these questions:

Will your product be traveling by boat? By train? By 18-wheeled truck? Will it be exposed to the crushing weight of other products in the same transport vehicle? Frozen? Passing through the most humid conditions? Moved from one vehicle to another in the middle of a rainstorm?

  • Water-Resistant Films
  • Rigid, Layered Walls
  • Moisture-Resistant Glues

Nelson Container chooses the package materials with your transportation method and route in mind.

Triple Wall Shipping Boxes

Triple-walled corrugated boxes from Nelson Container are manufactured with various flute profiles to increase the compression strength and cushioning properties of the container. Using sturdy shipping boxes is the most logical solution when shipping products for your business or moving your possessions into a new home. Our heavy-duty packaging incorporates moisture-resistant adhesives in its construction to create the most impervious shipping container possible. Triple wall containers will protect your products against unforeseen damage caused by improper handling or punctures. All shipping boxes manufactured by Nelson Container are offered in bulk.      

Protective Inner Foam Packaging

Simply designing a container isn’t enough. Our containers protect your product from the elements encountered during transit AND from the product’s own specifications. We design the protective shell as well as any protective inner foam or inner corrugated board designs needed to keep your product stationary and safe.

Not every object fits perfectly in a rectangular container. Not every object has rectangular dimensions. Not every object sits still and unaffected during a cross-country trip in a train car. When your product has awkward dimensions, a hard-to-identify center of gravity, sharp corners, or other complicating aspects, you need Nelson Container.

In-House ISTA Testing Facility

Nelson Container has the advantage of utilizing an in-house ISTA testing facility where we test your products’ packaging for weaknesses in the design. If any packaging fails any test, it’s back to the drawing board.

Other companies need a third-party ISTA tester, which requires sending the product and packaging somewhere off-site, waiting for them to have time to test it, and waiting for them to return their findings. Then, if the design fails, the process starts all over again. Design. Wait. Get feedback. Repeat. This is a time-consuming process when a company doesn’t have the ability to perform ISTA tests in-house.

ISTA Tests Offered:

Series 1 1A 1B 1D  
Series 2 2A 2B 2C 2D
Series 3 3A-flat      


Lead Times with QRM

The longer you wait for your supplies, the more money you're pouring into empty overhead costs, and the less you see a return on your investment. Nelson Container helps increase your company's return on its investments by nearly eliminating lead times by using a system called quick response manufacturing (QRM). Quick response manufacturing borrows elements from lean manufacturing and JIT practices to reduce wasted time. Quick response manufacturing is a cornerstone in Nelson Container's manufacturing process. Our whole company is dedicated to ensure a smooth flow of the supply chain. 

Learn Why We're Better Custom Package Design Contact Nelson Container

As soon as you start your production of the item, place your order for its packaging. We'll have it made and delivered to your production floor by the time you finish running the job—often before you finish. You don't have to fill your warehouse with a product just because you're waiting on its packaging. Just call us, Nelson Container, and we'll fill your packaging orders on time, every time.

The Beast Builds the Best Corrugated Boxes

Our largest box making machine, a jumbo folder/gluer, allows us to create large, jumbo and oversized corrugated boxes faster and cheaper than anyone else in and around Fox Valley. Lead time for new package designs is 48 hours, while repeat packages are down to an astounding 24 hours.

Keep in mind, each corrugated box order is custom-made to your exact specifications. Our engineers will specify the grade of corrugation, the use of stitched or glued joints, and any protective inner packaging materials you need to keep your shipments safe. We want your products to arrive intact as much as you do.

Difference Between Corrugated Packaging and Cardboard Boxes

"Cardboard" is used to refer to any kind of flat paper packaging. Most of the time people say cardboard when they mean corrugated. Corrugated can be identified by the unique "fluting" between flat layers which gives the packaging slightly more volume while offering much more support. You're probably looking for corrugated, not cardboard.
