Shipping candy to a store, for both displays and stocking on a shelf, requires planning and really tough box features. Candy boxes are supposed to look nice, but even when they're packed inside a larger cardboard box for shipping to your customers, they can be scratched or dented if you don't use a good, sturdy material. You'll also want interior packaging that keeps everything in place.
Boxes for Both Shipping and Displaying Must Be Sturdy
When you choose your box material, choose something on the thicker side. Everyone wants that delicate box for candy, but that will just be destroyed in shipping and on a display stand. Go for thicker paperboard that doesn't try to open up on its own. With a glossy surface and a nice company design, even the thicker materials will seem elegant. Remember the expensive candy boxes of your youth and how stiff they were? That's what you want to aim for.
Look for Tuck and Tongue Style Boxes for Secure Shipping
A box style known as tuck and tongue will help stop candies from edging their way out of tuck tab and roll end boxes. The "tongue" is an extra flap that you tuck into a center opening at the end of the box; you've seen these used for electronics and other fragile items. These boxes are great for those candy boxes that won't be opened up on the shelf; for those, you'd want special display boxes with a perforated opening.
Remember to Order Candy Box Pads
Candy box pads are usually made of glassine paper with the occasional piece of corrugated cardboard. If you're shipping smaller candies that are in layers in each box, like bonbons, you'll need a pad or two between those layers to stop the top candies from smashing the bottom candies. The pads also help keep the candies in place, acting as box fillers, so you'll want glassine pads over the top layer of candy, too. If you're shipping candy that isn't as oddly shaped, such as flat candy bars, you may not need glassine paper, but some stiff cardboard between stacks of bars stops them from moving around during shipping. If what you're sending is a larger shipping box filled with smaller display boxes of chocolate bars, you'll want to pack the outer box with padding so that the interior boxes don't crash into the outer box's walls.
Shipping candy isn't as complicated as it seems. You do need to figure out exactly which materials you'll need for each type of candy, but once you do that, then you'll already have the information you need if you start shipping new candies with similar shapes and sizes. That makes growing your candy business a little easier.

Hello there, I am June. Welcome to my site about software systems used for processing and manufacturing. The equipment used on the production and assembly line is often controlled using software systems. These systems may be operated using computer equipment or handheld devices. I want to talk about the way these software systems are developed and updated. I will discuss the control softwares' main and secondary functions in detail. I will also go into the softwares' ability to speed up the manufacturing and processing procedures. Thank you for visiting my informative website. I hope to see you again very soon.
