Industrial packaging is heavy-duty and designed to store, protect, and ship a wide range of goods. It is typically used in manufacturing and distribution businesses. It varies in size and material and can also be customized to suit specific needs. Some common types of industrial packaging include boxes, bags, tape, envelopes, and containers. Some types of specialized industrial packaging include insulated, anti-static, and tamper-evident products.

Boxes and mailers are the most basic packaging supplies that businesses need to store or ship goods. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and are made from different materials including cardboard and corrugated fiberboard. Bags and sacks are another form of shipping and storage container that comes in various sizes and materials including plastic, burlap, or paper. Strapping and banding materials include plastic and steel bands that are tightened around a package or pallet of goods to improve containment strength and secure the load to a shipping pallet.
Other forms of packaging materials include tapes and adhesives, strapping and stretch films, cushioning and padding materials, and wrappings and tubing. Tapes and adhesives seal boxes and packages tightly to prevent contents from spilling or leaking. They are available in a variety of thicknesses and adhesive strengths. Strapping and stretch films help bundle items together, keep them in place, and protect them from dust or other contaminants. Foam and air pillows add cushioning and protection during transportation. Wrappings and tubing seal products securely and are available in various sizes and materials, such as saran wrap, cling film, and heat-activated shrink wrap.
Specialized packaging materials include shipping monitor indicators, which allow manufacturers and distributors to track and record the conditions of their shipments. These indicators measure and report the number of shocks, tilts, and temperature fluctuations that a packaged product experiences during its journey. Examples of these shipping monitor indicators include the Impact Label and Leaning Label.
Lastly, identification and marking materials label packages and other containers with information about their contents and handling. These products are available in a variety of colors and shapes and can be printed with company logos, barcodes, and other identification information. Some of these products are also water-resistant and UV-proof. They are designed to last for long periods of time without fading or peeling. They are ideal for food packaging, where they can protect the integrity of the contents while in transit.
