Detailed information regarding tamper proof packaging / boxes

The security of items is becoming increasingly important as more purchases are made online with postage being the supply method.

As soon as products leave your warehouse or fulfilment centre they are at risk from being intercepted and potentially stolen or damaged before they reach the intended recipient.

Tamper-proof packaging can be a useful tool for a wide range of industries – especially ones where product safety is paramount, or items of high value are involved.

While the traditional method, using tamper evident tapes or labels, would immediately highlight whether ecommerce packaging had been opened, the use of these methods had a number of problems.

This includes adding a step to all packing processes (with a detrimental effect on packing times / productivity), the added cost of secondary packaging and the increased admin of re-ordering, inventory management etc.

Tamper proof box options

An option growing in popularity is the inclusion of printed tear strips which are impossible to replace once torn off, clearly identifying that the package has been opened.

These tear strips are integrated into the packaging so that they are secure and cannot be removed. There is no additional cost or tooling required for this.

The other frequently specified option to ensure security is to make use of interlocking tabs that when they are broken will drop in to the box making it clear that the box has been already been opened.

These are single use and extremely secure, making it extremely obvious that the ecommerce / postal packaging has been tampered with.

Both these options have no added tooling charge, keeping manufacturing costs at a minimum.

They also remove the need for additional tamper evident tape which further reduces costs to your business and streamlines the process of preparing products for dispatch.
