Carton is the most important container for shipment of the goods. Buyer usually gives written instruction as to the construction of the cartons. As per buyer requirement, there should be a shipping mark both sides of carton box where exist bar-code sticker and other shipping information. Cartons are made of multiple plies of the special type of paper. The respective buyer could fix three plies, five plies or seven plies (Normal/All liner/High GSM) quality carton boxes. Some buyer also likes to use an additional ply board to increase protection of their goods.
Cartons should be adequately strong so that they can carry the garments to the buyer in far off countries without getting damaged. Loaded cartons are bound with PP strapping. For FCL shipment PP strapping is not required, but for LCL cargo sometimes PP strapping is mandatory, but now a day’s maximum buyer is not willing to use PP strapping due to an environmental issue.
Inner cartons are smaller that outer carton boxes. An outer carton often contains a number of inner cartons. For example, an outer carton must contain forty shirts and they should be divided into four inner cartons. So, each inner carton must hold ten shirts, and there should be four inner cartons in the main carton. This way of packaging keeps the garment safe and away from damage. Packaging is also a manual and labor-intensive work. However, simple tools are available to enhance productivity.
