Myth: FedEx and UPS won’t insure your package if it’s packed with paper.
Truth: False! Both FedEx and UPS point to paper as an acceptable means of protective packaging. Each company provides guidelines and recommendations regarding how to pack on their respective websites.
The truth of the matter is that Ranpak’s protective packaging can safely protect almost any product during shipment. Our patented paper packaging technology is used across a wade array of industries and products from cookies to computer monitors, and even a 250-lb window. In fact, companies often see reduced damage rates after switching to Ranpak products from other applications such as air bags, bubble and foam.
Ranpak Package Engineers can develop a custom package design specific to your product at no cost to you. Our Package Engineers work in our International Safe Transit Association (ISTA) certified laboratory. The lab features a drop tester and a vibration table, as well as other sophisticated equipment designed to ensure that the packaging design being tested meets your needs and carrier requirements.
