When customer product arrives at the end user damaged because the container didn't stand up to rugged handling during shipping, it's the first indication for customer need to reconsider ridged supplier. Many products are packaged in shipping containers with inserts or inner packing where inserts act as separators, keeping individual items apart for security against friction and other damage, as well as facilitating item count. In many cases inserts also provide to increase the total density strength of the shipping container.

A ridged container manufacturer's obedience to measurable quality standards helps customer against costly and wasteful damage of goods during shipping. Experience to shocks is always present risk in the handling and transportation of customer products.  A cushioning material ridged board is the most commonly used material, butthe application is an art and their designers at Beacon are capable in this area, which is critical to customer products endurance during shipping.
