The “box to bag” shift is very real and for good reason now.
Compared to boxes, mailer envelopes are:
If you are not already paying higher shipping costs due to dimensional weight, the bad news is that you soon will be. Essentially, package carriers are now charging for the space your package takes up in their system and truck. So the cost to ship a light product (example – apparel) in an oversized box is determined by the overall dimensions rather than just the weight as previously calculated for most packages. In other words, it used to not matter if the box or package was larger than it had to be, but now it does and you will be penalized with a new, higher rate.
Mailling bags are always lower in cost compared to some corrugated boxes. In addition to acquisition cost, they occupy less space on a truck or in your warehouse so the inbound shipping and storage costs are minimized.
In use, they also reduce packing labor because they do not have to be erected or taped. Most mailer envelopes have a convenient peel and seal strip that eliminates the need for additional tape to secure the contents.
The greatest advantage is the way they can conform to the product being shipped. There is no oversized penalty being paid because whether you are shipping one or three T-shirts (for example) the mailer envelope is always the perfect size.
What type of mailer envelope do you recommend?
It always depends on the application. What you ship, how you ship, and even how many you ship can influence our recommendation for you. Here are a few options we offer:
