Sleeves, Boxes & Containers.
Effective solution for bulk shipping / export
Corrugated cardboard pallet boxes – being able to handle weights of up to 1,000kg – are perfect for bulk shipping of multiple items. Easy to manoeuvre, your pallet boxes can be custom designed to work seamlessly with existing equipment, racking, transport providers or your specific products.
Pallet boxes can also be supplied / stored flat when not in use to reduce your warehouse storage requirement. They can be further enhanced with print and a range of coatings to offer further protection from abrasion, corrosion & moisture during shipping.
01: Key Benefits.
Advantages to your business of using pallet boxes
If your business already bulk ships products, or even exports to Europe or beyond, you will understand the challenges this poses. Preventing transit damage, keeping products together and maintaining cost effectiveness, are all of critical importance.
Fortunately, pallet boxes can help with this, plus offer additional benefits.

02: Transit Protection.
Protect your products during transit and / or export
Pallet Boxes are, effectively, a large, double walled carton that is attached to a timber pallet.
Made from double wall stitched corrugated board for strength, Pallet Boxes are perfect for shipping both multiple items in a fewer, large consignments, or heavy and / or bulky products.
The double wall corrugated board typically used offers excellent durability and strength, so that you can be confident that your products will be fully protected during storage and transportation.
However, it is even possible for GWP Packaging designers to analyse your products and operations, and design your packaging with the specific stack strength, durability and using the most cost effective material for your specific requirements.
This in turn leads to minimised transit damage, less stock written off as un-sellable, fewer returns and, ultimately, enhanced satisfaction for your customers.
Regardless of your chosen size, design or requirement, cardboard pallet boxes are supplied as a composite pack with a cap, sleeve and tray.
As such, the boxes come with the bottom tray mounted on an integral wooden pallet. Whilst a standard sized four-way entry pallet is commonly specified, Pallet Boxes can be tailored to fit the specific pallets that are used throughout your operations and supply chain.
Regardless of the pallet chosen, they will be heat treated and conform to export standards – giving you peace of mind. In fact, you can either ask GWP to source the pallets you require, or supply them for use as part of your pallet boxes.
Reliable performance to ensure protection in transit
03: Efficiency & Productivity.
Drive improvements in efficiency and productivity
Cardboard Pallet Boxes can provide a cost effective solution for the bulk transit of your products. However, you can also realise cost savings through reducing transit damage (as detailed above) but also through improved efficiency.
Designed to hold weights up to 1,000kgs, they offer the potential for shipping multiple products in larger consignments instead of in numerous smaller ones.
As such, making use of Pallet Boxes could ultimately reduce your company’s shipping costs and have a direct, positive impact on your profitability.
If you choose to use industry standard sized pallets, it ensures they are compatible with most equipment, racking, transit vehicles and shipping containers.
Besides the manoeuvrability this offers, it also ensures they are suitable for use when shipping items by road, rail, sea or air. They also enable the efficient use of space, allowing you to ship more items at a lower cost.
Another benefit is that the corrugated element is collapsible, so once your product has been successfully delivered the boxes can be quickly collapsed and stored for the return journey (if applicable).
Finally, the corrugated material can be removed from the pallet and recycled, allowing the pallet to be used again too.

05: Printed Pallet Boxes.
Additional options to boost sales and increase brand awareness
As well as offering an efficient and safe way to transport your products, you can also select from various additional options.
For example, you can choose from a range of print options that can not only give a professional appearance to your packaging, but will help with ongoing brand recognition and awareness too.
Besides this, print can be used to include part / batch numbers, barcodes to help with inventory management or even instructions for handling to ensure safety and further minimise the potential for damage.
An additional option for increased protection is the use of protective coatings applied directly to the corrugated material.
Particularly suited for use on Pallet boxes are water resistance, anti abrasion (useful for protecting the packaging of the items within the pallet box) and even VCI corrosion inhibitor, which prevents rusting or tarnishing of metal products or components.
The VCI inhibitor is essential for export, with products frequently exposed to atmospheric moisture during shipping by sea.
Plus, due to the way in which GWP is structured, if corrugated cardboard pallet boxes are no one-hundred-percent suited to your specific application, you can source plastic pallet boxes instead.
Perfect for particularly heavy duty applications, these can be custom manufactured from Correx® corrugated plastic, or you can chose from a wide selection of moulded plastic stacking boxes.
