Costco, Sam's Club, and many other large retailers have made the shift to new packaging strategies with a focus on sustainability and minimizing secondary packaging. In an effort to reduce secondary packaging, these retailers have increased their need for "retail ready" packaging; something edge protectors have played a large part in. The benefits of these strategies provide value to any size company. Edge protectors, corner boards, whichever name you know them by, save you money by increasing transportation efficiencies, minimizing secondary packaging, and reducing in-transit damage.

Edge protectors are multiple layers of recycled paper that are glued together and laminated. Various options are available, from logo printing for your branding efforts, to moisture absorbent, to color coded for easy pallet identification.
With an assortment of thickness and lengths, edge protectors can meet any application need. They offer stability when stacking pallets, and during transport. They can reinforce heavy and unstable loads, reducing spillage and loss of product, as well as improving the effectiveness of strapping.
