  • Material Heavy duty Gaylord boxes are meant to ship or store items of all types. From storing food items to providing a protective casing to heavy machinery, these bulk cargo containers are not restricted in their application and find use in a variety of industries. The material they are made from is supposed to consist of at least three layers of sheets, with a corrugated center. If your purchase of heavy duty Gaylord boxes does not have the required number of layers, it means they are not good quality and won’t last long.
  • Multiple uses Making your purchase from a reputable vendor becomes particularly important when it comes to products such as heavy duty Gaylord boxes. Good packaging not only protects your items during transit but also becomes cost-effective in the long term. Unless put under exceptional duress, these bulk cargo containers can be reused at least two to three times before they have to be replaced. Not using the Gaylord box for the time being? Just fold it and stow it away for future use!
