Effective, Eco-Friendly Packaging Solutions for Shipping

Do you need custom shipping boxes or transit packaging? For over 40 years, we’ve been supplying shipping boxes, transit boxes and consumables suitable for courier dispatch and full pallet transportation. We’ve got everything you need for couriers, individual box dispatches and pallet load distribution.

Corrugated Shipping Boxes and Custom Shipping Packaging

Whether you need custom printing for your transit packaging or a specific shipping box size, we can help you design an effective packaging solution. We also have a wide range of standard shipping packaging and transit boxes available via our online shop. These include single-wall and double-wall cardboard boxes, heavy-duty transit cartons and cardboard pallet containers, packing tape, pallet wrap and other packaging essentials.

Bespoke Packaging for Shipping and Transit 

Our bespoke packaging solutions are designed to save you money. We do this by reducing unnecessary empty box space, meaning your goods have greater protection and are less likely to become damaged during transportation. For added security, we can include cardboard or foam fittings, while custom printing can make your packaging easily identifiable and give your branding a boost.

Kind to the Planet, Kind to Your Pocket

We aim to minimise packaging waste, save unnecessary packaging costs, preserve the planet’s resources, and give your transit packaging a more professional appearance. With various board grades and strengths, we offer extended durability for your custom shipping boxes, extending their lifespan. After usage, they can easily be recycled. Plus, by maximising palletisation, we can reduce transportation costs, lowering your business’s carbon footprint.

We can assess your current packaging requirements at Packaging Supplies and consolidate your box usage with our wide range of box sizes and designs. For bulk discount prices, simply get in touch with our friendly team for a free quote.

Shipping Boxes and Transit Packaging FAQs

This depends on the item you’re shipping. Transit packaging is a great choice for protecting and containing products during transport as it provides a sturdy and secure packaging solution to prevent damage to the contents. If your item is already packaged in a box, you might want to save on packaging costs and instead wrap it with Kraft paper or pop it into a compostable mailing bag.

For large items, we can supply export pallet boxes which comprise of a tray, sleeve and lid on a wooden pallet base. They come in standard sizes and we can quote for them on an individual basis. Please note that we don’t sell these through our shop due to their size.

Our strong and sturdy shipping boxes are made from 80% recycled material and are also 100% plastic-free. We stock both single-wall cardboard boxes and heavy-duty double-wall options.

Single-wall cardboard boxes have one layer of corrugated cardboard, which makes them more lightweight and a great choice for lighter items. Double-wall transit boxes have an additional layer offering extra strength and protection, making them ideal for heavier or fragile products.

Yes, we stock a wide range of sizes for our shipping boxes, from small parcels right up to large cardboard boxes. If you have a tricky item to ship or require specific measurements, we can make your transit boxes to your required measurements. Get in touch with our custom packaging team and find out how we can help.

Whether you need to use void fill or not will depend on what you’re shipping and the amount of free space in your transit box. If the item is particularly fragile or there’s free space that your goods can move around in, it may be a good idea to use void fill. We have a wide selection of eco-friendly void fill on offer, including EcoNutz, newspaper offcuts and NestPack.

Yes! Our shipping boxes are made with the planet in mind; that’s why they’re 100% plastic-free. At the end of their life, they can be recycled or home-composted, so there are plenty of options for responsible disposal. 

Yes, you can! Our transit packaging solutions can be fully customised. Whether you want to put your brand on your box to make it easily identifiable while adding a hint of your company’s personality or just need a custom size, we can help.

Expert packaging suppliers for over 40 years, with an emphasis on plastic-free packaging

In the late 1970s, two friends and colleagues, Tim Allen and Stewart Middleton saw a gap in the market for a different type of packaging supplier. At the time, other businesses were selling custom made boxes and stocking packaging consumables, but Tim and Stewart wanted to offer more than that. They wanted to give their clients additional services, such as warehouse storage and the ability to have their packaging delivered as and when it was required. Packaging Supplies was established, and the rest is history.
