I think most would agree that corrugated board is one of the greenest packaging materials currently available. You can buy it with a high or 100% recycled content and when it is no longer needed, it can easily and readily be recycled to serve another day and another packaging application.
Partitions have been rediscovered by the green and packaging communities as a great way to solve a packaging or damage problem, while reducing material and labor costs when compared to other product protection options. Best of all, it can all be accomplished with undeniably eco friendly, corrugated board.
Corrugated Partitions - Not Just for Liquor Bottles Anymore
Historically corrugated partitions have been a mainstay in the liquor and bottled beverage industry because they do such an excellent job of separating and protecting one product from another. Obviously bottle to bottle damage is virtually eliminated and other benefits are also enjoyed.
- Labels are not marred or damaged in shipment because label to label abrasion is prevented.
- Stacking strength is dramatically increased, even when the bottled and cased products are heavy liquids
- Bottles and jars remain upright, minimizing the possibility of leakers
New Applications for Eco Friendly Corrugated Partitions
Recently we have had a flurry of partition projects and applications and here are a few reasons why our customers chose this solution over other options we offered:
To verify count
– Products were individually wrapped with Kraft paper to avoid damage and then randomly stacked and packed in a corrugated case. Our customer was being inundated by claims of incorrect counts. Coincidently the complaints were always for under shipment, never over, so we created a 20 cell partition that separated the individual products for easy, accurate count confirmation.
