From classic corrugated cardboard boxes of every size to specific e-commerce boxes, DS Smith's shipping boxes will meet the needs of every e-retailer. Our flexible solutions make shipping and packaging easy. Browse through our range of packing boxes designed for e-commerce businesses and find the perfect solution to ship your products to your customers.

How to Choose the Right Cardboard Box

Packaging has several important responsibilities in your e-commerce business. It protects your products, ensuring they aren’t damaged in transit. It delivers a positive unboxing experience that leaves your customers with a favorable opinion of your brand. And – managed correctly – it helps you cut down on the materials you need, minimising both costs and waste.

But with all the different types of cardboard boxes available, how do you decide which is the ideal fit for your products? Start by taking a closer look at your company’s specific needs.

Do you offer products of various sizes?

This is a common challenge for e-commerce businesses. You sell a variety of items, and they don’t all fit in one standard box. Try one of these strategies:

  • Determine if you can fulfill orders using boxes in just a few different sizes – for example small, medium and large. Our versatile single wall cardboard boxes are sold in 10 different dimensions and can be used to ship various products.

  • Customise boxes to fit each product. We developed our Made2fit cardboard boxes to solve this exact problem for e-commerce businesses. They come in just two standard sizes, but you can adjust them to create 26 different sized boxes – perfect for anything you are shipping.
Do you offer products of different weights?

Weigh your products before getting too far in your packaging selection process. Many retailers, including DS Smith, allow you to filter products based on weight: light duty, medium duty and heavy duty. Lighter items are generally easier and more affordable to ship.

Light duty (up to 5 kg) and medium duty (6 to 15 kg) boxes, such as single wall boxes or postal boxes, are multipurpose packaging solutions suited to many items.

But if you do need to ship heavier items, opt for double wall cardboard boxes. These sturdy boxes feature double-fluted cardboard, and the extra layers of protection safeguard products against harm during shipping.

Do you sell fragile products?

Delicate items, such as electronics, art and glassware, require extra care to make sure they arrive at their destination in perfect condition. Look for packaging that both secures items in place and offers a layer of cushioning against bumps and shakes.

Tips for protecting your fragile items:

  • Leave as little room as possible. Items packed in a box that is too big are in danger of rattling around and breaking in transit. Choose a cardboard box that fits snugly around the product and appropriate void fill (like bubble wrap or kraft paper).
  • Hold items in place. Secure a fragile item inside a shipping box with an interior retention unit, or use a retention pack, an all-in-one packaging solution, to ship breakable items like mobile phones or tablets without the need for additional void fill.
Do you sell products that need additional security?

When you ship high-value or sensitive items, such as jewellery, food, drink or cosmetics, you and your customers want extra assurance that no one will tamper with them en route. Secure postal boxes’ have a unique closure that effectively prevents interference or theft.
