Folding boxes are storage or shipping containers that can be folded into a box shape from one or more specially-designed flat sheets. They can be made of both paper-based products as well as other materials like plastic. They are valued because they do not require the use of adhesives, fasteners or tape.
The need for storage and shipping containers is universal across industry, commerce and consumer products contexts. Every company that makes or sells things needs a way to get their products to their customers. Cardboard boxes are among the most popular tools used for this purpose. They are used for the storage of ingredients in industrial processes as well as to ship the products of those processes. They are used to store breakfast cereal, electronics, facial tissues, staples, agricultural products like eggs and a wide range of other kinds of products. Because cardboard boxes are used for so many different purposes, many different cardboard box varieties are necessary to accommodate them. Folding cardboard boxes are popular for the storage of medium-weight objects. Folding boxes are usually sold unassembled; they are assembled by their users once they arrive at their place of application.
