Just a few inches of extra empty space in your packaging can have a huge impact on your bottom line. The average shipping box is 40-60% empty space. By creating custom boxes with an On Demand Packaging® solution, Packsize customers solve this problem and report immediate cost savings.

By eliminating or reducing filler material needed to protect the product during shipment, we’re able to eliminate about $0.50 of packaging materials per box. When shipping hundreds of boxes, these savings will add up fast. What’s more, void filler is usually the most unsustainable part of your package—it’s often made from plastics that don’t naturally decompose and aren’t easily recycled.
Nowadays, most shippers treat a box that’s the size of one cubic foot the same as a box that weighs 10 pounds. Every inch of space saves you money when it comes to dimensional weight charges.
