For example, by taking a holistic view of your packaging is possible to highlight inefficiencies and wasted spend. For example, reducing packing times can boost productivity.

Inventory Management (JIT Supply)

Reduce warehouse space and costs

GWP are able to supply your packaging within a “Just-in-Time” (JIT) service agreement.

06: Material.

What is corrugated packaging?

In essence, corrugated board is a high performance packaging material that has been used in one form or another for over 100 years.

Corrugated cardboard is created from a combination of two sheets of paper, referred to as liners, which are then glued to a corrugated inner medium known as “fluting”. The 3 layers of material are assembled in such a manner that it gives the overall structure improved strength over that of each individual layer – effectively becoming greater than the sum of its’ parts.

This ingenious design creates a continuous series of arches, connected to each other, which combine to provide an extremely high strength for its weight. This provides corrugated board with good levels of both rigidity and resistance.

packaging manufacture
Corrugated packaging is arguably the most prevalent form of packaging in use today, being both cost effective and flexible

An added benefit is that the air circulating within the flutes also acts as an insulator, providing a layer of protection for its’ contents against temperature variations.

There are numerous grades of corrugated board, each with varying flute sizes and profiles. These provide a huge number of combinations that enables the creation of packaging solutions with different characteristics and levels of performance.

Corrugated boards can of course be cut, folded, trimmed and coated into an infinite variety of designs to become finished corrugated packaging.
