BDCM boxes

Delivery in BDCM cardboard boxes is a common requirement if your business ships clothing, fashion or even certain types of homeware.

BDCM is an abbreviation of “Bulk Distribution Carton Metric”. Like Bulk Distribution Carton (BDC) boxes, BDCM boxes are effectively a range of industry-standard sizes. Using BDC and BDCM boxes for shipping clothing and other garments is frequently stipulated by larger retailers and catalogue businesses.

GWP is a UK manufacturer of all BDCM box sizes, with our extensive experience ensuring that your packaging adheres to industry standards for retail, clothing and catalogue trades.

Benefits of BDCM boxes

Besides being able to source BDCM, BDC and any standard cardboard box sizes from us, you can expect to see a whole range of additional benefits by working with GWP.

GWP precisely manufacture BDCM cardboard boxes in the UK to industry standard carton sizes (including BDCM 1, BDCM 2, BDCM 3, and BDCM 4), ensuring you comply with large retailer delivery requirements.

Standard printing includes space for manually adding supplier, catalogue number, colour and size information to the outer face, allowing for easy identification of specific products.

A dotted line provides a guide for cutting an opening in the BDCM boxes, which allows for easy picking of products by warehouse or fulfilment staff.

Adding printed company branding, logos and handling or safety instructions to BDCM boxes is also possible.

BDCM boxes typically utilise a durable single-wall material, making them sturdy yet lightweight. Double wall material can be used for heavier items if required.

Either premium white or natural kraft (brown) material is available for the manufacture of your BDCM boxes.

BDCM cartons are supplied flat-packed, minimising delivery costs and reducing storage requirements before use.

BDCM cardboard boxes are quick and easy for staff to assemble (packing tape is required), improving productivity.

All BDCM boxes that GWP manufacture use material from FSC® certified sources and are fully recyclable.
