There are so many reasons why a tri wall box is the clear-cut choice for many overseas shipments. Add customization, and this smart option is a slam dunk!
Although many packaging companies often offer a dozen or so stock sizes for you to choose from, nothing guarantees a perfect fit like a customized tri wall box. You provide the exact specifications and the packaging manufacturer company does the rest.

Keep Customs Happy
Besides a perfect fit, a customized tri wall box moves through customs quicker than wooden boxes. Sure wooden boxes can be customized too, but they are subject to certain restrictions that can make or break a deadline.
These restrictions are collectively known as “ISPM 15 Rules,” which apply to international shipping of ocean freight that contains wooden crates, dunnage, wooden pallets, wood cases, drums, and other wood-packaging material.
|ISPM 15 requires that all international ocean freight shipments using any species of raw wood packaging must be fumigated or heat treated, prior to the international shipping, to kill insects or fungus. All wood-packing materials used in international shipping must be stamped with the approved by IPPC stamp, prior to the international shipping. International ocean freight shipments that contain wood-packing materials will be checked in respect of compliance with the ISPM 15 regulations before to be allowed to enter to or crossing through a participating IPPC country.

In addition to faster movement through customs, a custom tri wall box can be designed to help your products (and brand) stand out in a sea of competition. You can choose bright colors, cool eye-catching designs, logos, labels and more to set your boxes apart. A customized box can also be outfitted with dependable accessories like corrugated trays and pads, dividers, handles and more to ensure that your products are always safe and secure.
Speaking of safety— a customized tri wall box is considered extra heavy duty thanks to three flutes instead of the standard two, which offers superior strength.
This solution is made with high performance grade corrugated paperboard, which is much stronger than cardboard (stiff paper) because rows of air columns act as a cushion and paper columns make the box strong. The air cushions offer an added layer of protection to help absorb shock and hold up when multi-stacked.
Something to keep in mind when considering this packaging product is due to its paper-based exterior tri wall boxes must be stored in a dry location. Just like a single of double wall corrugated box, triple wall box is susceptible to deterioration when in contact with liquids.
A bonus benefit of choosing tri wall corrugated boxes is recyclability. Corrugated boxes (custom or not) can be recycled up to eight times. This equals savings for you and the environment.
