What is an e-commerce box?
These single wall cardboard boxes are specifically tailored toward online retailers due to the rapid assembly design and other physical features that aid pack efficiency. E-commerce businesses have to be reactive and fast-moving to
trends and the overall turbulent nature of the industry. The demand for speed is becoming ever more pressing with customers wanting orders to arrive next-day, necessitating fast order fulfilment. Additionally, the box is intuitive to
open and displays the products in an appealing, presentational manner to create a positive customer experience, further encouraging loyalty and repeat sales. Delivery speed and the general presentation of a package are both key factors
for establishing a committed customer base, both of which are sensitively addressed with Kite’s specialised e-commerce boxes.
What are the physical qualities of this e-commerce gift box?
These mailing boxes have a crash lock base that grants them the fastest assembly time of all our boxes; simply push the opposite corners of the box towards each other to make the base flaps automatically lock together. The hinged lid is able to be fastened with the integrated peel-&-seal strip, eliminating any time that would otherwise have been taken to cut and apply a separate tape adhesive. This streamlines cost in addition to keeping a packing space tidy and free from unnecessary stationery. To enhance end-user satisfaction, an open tear strip is included to easily open the package without difficulty. The cardboard itself is comprised of heavy duty single wall corrugation to provide suitable protection to an array of different product types. The box is lightweight thanks to the single layer construction, keeping postage costs and carbon footprints to a minimum.
Are cardboard boxes eco-friendly?
Our high quality corrugated cardboard boxes are environmentally friendly thanks to an assortment of qualities. Firstly, the card is sustainably sourced from renewable resources and can be widely and domestically recycled after use. The crash lock base design enables the postal box to be easily compressed into a flat configuration to fit comfortably and compactly into any home recycling bin. Cardboard has a fantastic recycling rate partnered with the ability for the material to be reused around 25 times without compromising the quality. This situates corrugated cardboard neatly into the circular economy that is essential in the creation of a green supply chain.
What sizes are available?
At Kite, we supply seven different sizes of e-commerce mailing boxes with differing dimensions to suit a variety of goods. The hinged lid particularly lends itself to presenting items in an aesthetic manner, making the cardboard boxes a popular choice for displaying gifts or luxury products such as beauty or cosmetics. The smallest option is ideal for a single object such as a watch or candle, while the larger sizes cater toward gift businesses wanting to exhibit multiple wares for an attractive and memorable unboxing experience. Other industries including homeware, baked goods or ceramics also benefit from the universal practicality of a well-built box with built-in efficiency features.
How to integrate these boxes into your packaging system:
Our range of void fill and cushioning materials are the perfect partner to these e-commerce boxes, keeping each object stably located in the same position it was packed in. Tissue paper or shredded paper is perfect for maintaining the sense of high quality, premium packaging while our hivewrap or paper wraps express a sensitivity to our environment in their kraft brown hues. Our selection of in-the-box protection is scalable to the level of shielding your products require; at Kite, we have lighter products and heavier duty solutions to ensure that parcels arrive in the same condition they are sent it.
