Reading Time: 3 minutes

Losing products due to damage in transit is a worry for any eCommerce business, or anyone needing to send items between different locations. Finding the right protective packaging helps to ease these worries by preventing damage to your products in transit. Foam packaging comes in a variety of different forms, but whatever form it comes in, foam packaging is an excellent choice for offering great levels of protection for your products at an affordable price without adding extra weight to your parcels. 

 

Foam Rolls 

Foam rolls are one of the most widely used choices of foam packaging out there and they are extremely easy to use. Foam rolls are very flexible and can be used to wrap a wide variety of items no matter how awkward the shape. As they are supplied on large rolls of up to 300m long you can simply add more layers for higher levels of protection if needed and can choose from thicknesses from between 1-4mm.

Egg Box Foam Packaging 

If you’re looking for something that’s heavier duty and will fill out your box quickly, then these foam inserts are an ideal choice. Made from individual sheets of foam 25 or 30mm high, these foam inserts allow you to encase your products in a thick layer of protective foam within your boxes. Many are already suitable for our postal boxes, but they can also be cut down to shape if needed to make sure that they fit snugly into your boxes to provide the best protection possible.
