Understanding the Importance of Corner Protection

Corrugated boxes are a lightweight, efficient and eco-friendly way to move products. However, a lot can go wrong when you’re moving large amounts of cargo in corrugated boxes. Items can shift, boxes can fall apart, and people can be injured. Corner protectors can help you avoid these issues. Here are a few reasons why you should be using corner protection when moving cargo.  


Protect the Cargo

While corrugated boxes can hold a lot of weight, they can also sustain damage from a lot of different sources. By using corner protectors when moving corrugated boxes, you can keep the boxes from bending or shifting, which will do the same for the items inside. This makes transporting large amounts of items easier and more efficient. 


Keep the Packaging Intact

When corrugated boxes bump into each other, they can bend and even tear. Corner protectors prevent some of this movement. They can also help you prevent damage from water, debris or pests finding their way into the boxes. Keeping your boxes intact while transporting them is essential for getting them to where they need to go. 


Reduce Co-Worker Injury

Keeping boxes together makes moving cargo safer, especially for co-workers who need to carry them from one place to another. Boxes that aren’t held together properly can collapse, causing the items to fall on a co-worker tasked with transporting them. Items can also fall or fly out through unseen holes, creating hazards for co-workers and anyone in their path. 


Move Items More Efficiently

One of the most important benefits of protecting the cargo you’re transporting is how much more efficient it makes your business. You can save the money you would have spent having to replace, inspect and repackage items. Additionally, you can improve customer satisfaction by delivering intact goods in a timely manner. It’s a win-win for your business!
