About custom windscreen packaging
Sourcing windscreen packaging can be challenging for OEM and Tier one automotive suppliers. Windscreens are large, heavy, and subject to being damaged during transit.
As such, custom windscreen packaging that incorporates internal foam fittings, plus pallets for ease of handling, is becoming increasingly popular.
Our windscreen packaging is perfectly sized for your specific windscreens. Not only does this help prevent damage during transportation by minimising movement, but it also reduces storage requirements. Bespoke sizing also results in improved transport efficiency.
Your windscreen packs use durable corrugated cardboard, with the exact grade selected to provide the optimum protection for your product. Foam inserts also provide cushioning protection. The correct material can also allow for your windscreen packaging to stack safely.
The base and lid design also enables easy loading and unloading of contents, whilst the pallets (which GWP can manufacture in custom sizes) allow for ease of movement in your production or storage facilities. ISPM 15 heat treating also ensures your windscreen packaging is suitable for export.
Finally, if you ship a lot of differing windscreens, you can opt for a modular design that can accommodate a range of different sizes without sacrificing any of the protection.

The cardboard element of windscreen packaging is fully recyclable at appropriate recycling facilities.
The corrugated cardboard and timber used in the manufacture of this packaging is biodegradable.
Corrugated cardboard typically contains between 50 to 70% recycled material.
Water based inks
GWP use water based inks when printing your pallet boxes in-house.
GWP manufacture your windscreen packaging in the UK, reducing emissions from transport.
The durable nature of pallet boxes means they can often be reused over multiple trips.
What is windscreen packaging?
Windscreen packaging allows for the safe transportation of windscreens. Usually manufactured from corrugated cardboard and including foam inserts to provide cushioning protection in transit, windscreen packs also commonly include a pallet for easy handling.
What is the difference between a windscreen and a windshield?
Windscreen and windshield are interchangeable terms for the same thing. Windscreen is commonly used in the UK, Australia and New Zealand, whilst windshield is more common in North America.
Can windscreen packs be recycled?
The corrugated cardboard element of windscreen packaging is easily recycled. The wood used for a pallet (if included) can also be recycled or reused. Any foam inserts, whilst recyclable, must be taken to a specialist facility.
Is windscreen packaging reusable?
Windscreen packaging is durable enough to be used over multiple trips within the supply chain. However, it is possible to manufacture windscreen packaging using Correx® material, lasting hundreds of trips.
Windscreen box pricing
As all windscreens are different in size and shape, custom windscreen packaging is the best option in terms of cost, protection and space efficiency. However, by their very nature, listing prices for a custom product is impossible. This reason is why you cannot find pricing details on our website.
