carton packagingYour product’s packaging is one of the first, and therefore most important, impressions you can make on customers. If your packaging isn’t making an impact on shoppers, you can bet that your competitors’ packaging will. Econo-Pak’s full-range carton services help in cases like these, successfully maximizing your brand’s potential.

What Are Carton Services?

Cartoning is a technique manufacturers use to encase consumable and non-consumable goods in individual or bundled packaging for consumer distribution. Not only does this process facilitate product transportation and distribution, but it also combines the necessary design elements to turn shoppers into buyers.

Econo-Pak brings more than 40 years of experience to the contract packaging field, so your next product is sure to stand out on the shelves. We’re trusted by organizations ranging from small, independent firms to Fortune 500 giants.

Carton Service Packaging

This versatile packaging method provides an efficient means to pack and ship products to distribution centers and retail outlets. Many suppliers take advantage of cartoning for reasons including:

  • Ability to work with a broad range of food product types
  • Customizable package size and design options
  • Enhanced product efficiency
  • Easy and safe sealing techniques
  • Reduced waste
  • Reduced labor costs

These benefits make cartoning a great way to distribute your products around the world.

Carton Service Industries

Many industries use cartoning techniques for their distribution and retail practices. Among them are:

  • Retail outlets
  • Supermarkets and wholesale stores
  • Craft breweries
  • Beverage bottlers
  • Club stores
  • Pharmacies
  • Food vendors and services

Manufacturers in these industries consider cartoning a safe, reliable, and efficient way to conveniently ship products without risking their integrity or quality.

Cartoning Machines

Several types of machines are available to form, fill, and seal your carton packages. Cartoning machines, or cartoners, come in two basic types:

  • Vertical cartoners, which pull carton blanks from a magazine and open them into carton flights vertically
  • Horizontal cartoners, also called end-load cartoners, which pull carton blanks from the magazine, open them into a horizontal flight, and fill them either manually or automatically
