How to choose the right product transport packaging

by:Jialan Package     2023-06-14

When transporting products, should you choose plastic express bags or packaging cartons? Choosing the right product packaging involves all aspects of branding and product safety, in addition to balancing box cost with functionality. Before choosing the shipping package, let's look at the advantages and disadvantages between plastic express bags and packaging cartons.

plastic courier bag

Plastic courier bags are lightweight, malleable, and usually don't take up much shipping space. In addition, using plastic bags to send express delivery has the following advantages and disadvantages:


Low cost - plastic bags reduce the need for void filling, transporting the same product, using courier bags takes up much less space than packaging cartons. This also helps companies save product transportation costs on the side. At the same time, the production cost of plastic bags is relatively low.

Quick packing - it is very simple to pack with express bags, you only need to put the product in the express bag, and then tear off the adhesive strip to seal the mouth, which also makes the packing more efficient.

Waterproof and moisture-proof——Most types of plastic bags are waterproof and moisture-proof. When the product encounters rainy days during transportation and delivery, the plastic bag can play a very good water-proof effect, thereby further protecting the product.


Weak anti-extrusion ability - plastic express bags can only play the role of dustproof and waterproof during transportation. If it is squeezed, it will not protect.

Not environmentally friendly - Although plastic is recyclable, plastic bags are usually disposed of as dry waste. Moreover, plastic bags will produce waste gas when they are incinerated after recycling, and it will take hundreds of years to decompose if they are buried.

Packing boxes

Corrugated boxes are one of the most common packaging methods used to deliver products to customers. Moreover, corrugated packaging boxes of different sizes can be customized according to the needs of the products. In addition, there are the following advantages and disadvantages:


Strength - Corrugated boxes are stronger than plastic bags and provide excellent protection for your products. Moreover, corrugated materials also have different strengths for brands to choose from.

Environmentally Friendly – ​​Most corrugated cardboard boxes are biodegradable and easily recyclable, so it’s easy to dispose of the box when you’re done using it.

Ease of Customization - Corrugated boxes come in many shapes and sizes depending on the needs of the product. At the same time, the brand information can also be displayed in the shipping box.


Not Waterproof – Unlike plastic bags, corrugated materials are generally not waterproof and may dampen the product if the package is left in a wet environment such as in the rain.

High cost - corrugated boxes are strong and durable, and their cost will be higher than that of plastic express bags.

It can be seen from the above that the advantages of packaging cartons as express packaging are far greater than express bags. However, what kind of transport packaging to choose depends on the needs of the product and the budget of the enterprise. For some low-value and non-destructive goods, you can choose low-cost express cartons. For some high-quality and high-demand products, it is very good to choose packaging cartons.
