Earth Day wasn’t that long ago. As a box manufacturer, we have to consider the impact we have on the environment. Many people love to hate packaging, but good packaging is actually is one of the most underrated tools for reducing waste. It makes sense when you think about it. If your packaging is snug, it means less material and less waste, which also translates into less cost—win-win!
Sometimes creating the right boxes for your goods is a customized job, but certainly one worth considering if it means eliminating extra bulk and weight, which can shave off expensive shipping costs. At Racer Boxes, we’ve created a range of standardized box sizes that fit a variety of applications. However, we’re always ready to help with a custom job. After all, providing the highest quality, the best service, and the most affordable pricing is how we’ve built our reputation.
While opting for the correct box sizes is an environmentally savvy choice, there are other factors to consider as well. Take the food industry, for example. An enormous amount of energy goes into producing, storing, and preparing to transport fruits and vegetables. When food is damaged during transportation, it means all of the water, land use, energy and financial resources that went into producing it are also squandered.
When it comes to protecting and transporting food, the right packaging makes all the difference. The produce boxes at Racer Boxes are specially designed for shipping fruits and vegetables. These boxes are durable with die-cut holes that allow your produce to breathe, ensuring it stays fresh while keeping it protected. In addition, our stackable (space-saving) fruit trays are the perfect fit for fresh strawberries, mushrooms, tomatoes, apples, peaches, and more!
Custom printing is available for all our products, and we are pleased to offer prices on complete skids. Being based in Richmond, we are in a position to deliver all over the Lower Mainland, and can arrange flexible shipping options for clients concerned about space and storage.
