Hybrid Packaging

Hybrid Packaging is Storopack’s method of using multiple in-the-box packaging materials in the same carton to cut costs on materials, handling and shipping.

 

  • Use your packaging materials more cost effectively by putting more protective packaging materials only where you need them and blocking, bracing or filling with lower priced, lighter weight materials.

  • Speed production by developing a step-by-step packing method using materials that are easier to handle and quicker to pack.

  • Replace more expensive forms of custom packaging and virtually eliminate custom inventory.
