Hinged cardboard box 540x380x320 mm
Hinged cardboard box with self-adhesive lid, 540 x 380 x 320 mm
Why should I buy a hinged cardboard box and not a "normal" folding carton?
Because it is easier to use and quicker to pack. Moreover, you don't need any additional material like adhesive tape; not least because of the self-adhesive lid.
What should be simpler about a hinged carton?
You just have to fold it up and it is ready for the goods. With normal folding boxes, the bottom has to be closed with adhesive tape beforehand; this is not necessary with the so-called 'automatic bottom'.
I only have to send packages occasionally. Faster packing does not matter to me!
Not to you. But think of an online retailer who has to pack hundreds of cartons a day. For him time is of the essence!
Automatic cartons are more expensive than normal packaging. A retailer can't save that much time to make it worthwhile!
Yes, he can: Large companies buy large quantities of packaging and therefore get much cheaper prices. Hinged boxes pay for themselves over time.
