Boxon’s Solution

Boxon customized a more profitable packaging solution based on the product features and transit mode.

Euro pallet and collars replace diverse plywood boxes

Boxon engineered Euro pallet and collars as outer packaging for the forklift parts. In this way, no more labors are needed to unpack and repack the parts after they arrive at the final destination in Sweden. It not only saves time but also diminishes the waste of plywood boxes which make its way to the landfill.

They can be reused multiple times and reduce the cost of packaging material to a great degree. Additionally, the ease of handling increase both when recieving the goods and stacking it. Customizable color and print also contributes to a high re-sale value.

Safe and tidy inner packaging
