Corrugated inserts to hold and protect a product within a mailer shipping box are usually a great packaging solution. In most cases, they reduce or eliminate the need for additional protective packaging products such as foam, paper or bubble packaging, and the labor required to use and apply those ancillary packaging materials.
When is a “built-in” insert advantageous?
In some situations, it is wiser to create a mailer box and use separate inserts for different size or shape products. Being able to stock one box and only have to swap out the inserts can be the most convenient and economical way to go.
However, in many other circumstances, when the mailer box is going to be used only for one product size and shape, there are numerous advantages to using a mailer with a built-in insert. These benefits may include:
- Lower packaging cost – typically a built-in insert results in lower cost because there is less waste and scrap.
- Reduced procurement costs – both necessary components are ordered, shipped and delivered together resulting in overall savings.
- Minimized storage and handling costs - valuable warehouse and pack station space is saved by not requiring multiple packaging components.
