Corrugated boxes are considered as the best versatile packaging option for use in logistic, warehouse, shipping and distribution markets. The superior strength to weight ratio makes it the best choice for these packaging solutions.

Outer dimension or inner dimension
There are many ways to measure the box; these tips are to help you to understand the requirements for deciding the right dimensions. The dimensions are measured in terms of length (L), width (W), and height or depth (H). The length is referred for longer side, while the width for the shorter of the two sides. The depth (or height) is the distance between the opposite and the opening panel.
Outside the box
The outer dimensions are used for transport considerations like pallet patterns and case forming. When determining the ideal good to mount, tape, form your box, outer dimensions are used.
Inside the box
The inner measurements are measured for a correct fit of your goods. As the thickness varies from one box to another, inner dimensions are considered.
