It is very important to pick the right size of the box because it doesn’t only help you lower the costs but also help you ensure better brand reception.
The cost of shipping is determined by length, width and depth of the box. You will have to accurately measure the box’s dimensions by keeping into consideration the size of your product. That will help you make informed shipping decisions.
Good thing is that it is pretty simple process to measure the box. But you have to make sure that you are doing right optimization of the box size for the size of item which is to be shipped.
The basic measurements that you are going to have to know here are the length, width and height (also called depth).
If you have the box for the packaging of your product, you will have to start by measuring the longest size of the box. That will be the length of the box. Then you need to measure the shortest side which is known as width of the box. And finally, you will need to measure the height from the inside of the box. With these measurements, you will be able to know about the amount of supplies that you are going to need for the protection of your product.
And if you have the product and you are ordering for a box, you will have to determine the size of your product. Let’s suppose that you are shipping a stack of calendars that gives the measurements of 9 inches in length, 9 inches in width, and 5 inches in height. You are going to need a box that offers nice adjustment of the stack with the measurements mentioned above while leaving a little space. The fitting accommodation can ensure reduced damage to the products.
With information about the measurements mentioned above, you can order for the box of right size. A custom box with a measurement of 10x10x6 inches is going to be the ideal solution here. Use of this box will leave half an inch of room around the calendars and one inch of room at the top of the package. This way, you will need minimum amount of fillers.
Optimization of the box size according to the size of product is very important. This optimization will ensure product safely during shipping and you will also be able to reduce the shipping costs due to reduced dimensional weight.
