Heavy-Duty Shipping Boxes

Heavy-Duty Boxes

Heavy-duty shipping boxes are essential for many shipping applications as they protect shipments during storage and transport. High-quality shipping boxes can protect all types of goods due to their numerous features, including water resistance, durability, stackability, and impact resistance.

Cardboard and corrugated shipping boxes feature various characteristics and offer several key advantages that make them ideal for many uses in the shipping industry.

We sell a variety of heavy-duty shipping boxes and related materials. Our boxes are strengthened with single, double, or triple wall construction and can be customized to fit your needs.

Important Features of Heavy-Duty Shipping Boxes

Heavy-duty shipping boxes play a crucial role in ensuring the safe transport of goods. Here, we will highlight the important features that make heavy-duty shipping boxes an essential tool for shipping and storage.

Durability and Strength

The right materials will provide sufficient durability and strength that preserve contained goods.

At Alpha, we use top-quality materials to provide this combination of strength and durability such as ECT kraft corrugated cardboard. This particular cardboard is a resilient and robust material that holds up to the stresses of shipping. It consists of three layers, including an inner line, a fluted middle layer, and an outer liner. Together, these layers provide adequate protection for various items, including those that are fragile or heavy.

Our ECT kraft corrugated cardboard is 40% stronger than a typical shipping container, and it’s available in single-walled boxes, double-walled cardboard boxes, and triple-walled options, along with a telescoping option.

Impact Resistance

Another feature to look for in a heavy-duty shipping box is impact resistance. Alpha’s shipping boxes are designed with reinforced edges and corners that further protect items from damage throughout shipment. This feature is critical for goods such as delicate machinery and glassware that are otherwise vulnerable to impact damage.

Our impact-resistant boxes are available in single, double, and triple-wall designs with the ability to add thickness for increased protection. Our triple-walled boxes are over 0.5″ thick.


To optimize boxes for shipment and storage, stackability is another key feature. This feature is particularly important for eCommerce, manufacturing, and other industries that transport large quantities of products.

You can easily stack our shipping boxes on top of each other to add stability and efficiency during transport. Our Multi-Depth boxes offer multiple box sizes in a single solution, helping you save more space in your inventory.

Customization Options

It’s possible to design heavy-duty shipping boxes with many dimensions and sizes based on each application’s unique requirements. In addition, we can print and brand these boxes with custom text and graphics for use in eCommerce or retail applications. We’ll design a complete custom solution that meets your specifications with each box.
