I have searched this universe far and wide for the next best type of shipping supplies. You know, things used to be a lot less complicated when it comes to business. We used to do things the old fashioned way and not worry about things like “ethics” or “morals”. In addition to this, we definitely didn’t have to worry about OSHA violations and all that. That being said, I think it is true that the world of eCommerce is definitely starting to be even more popular. Pretty soon, that will be the way that all business is done if you ask me. Some people might disagree with me on this issue, but I am a firm believer that we will see unprecedented levels of success in the eCommerce industry moving forward. With all that being said, I have been looking around different sectors of the market and poking around the internet trying to find the best and most profitable types of shipping supplies. You may think that I am crazy for doing this, but I truly believe that shipping supplies is the key to success. Anyways, I am basically rambling at this point because I am trying to write enough words in this article, but I wanted to take some time and talk about my favorite types of shipping and packing supplies and talk about what they are good for (and also maybe mention a few things that they are not good for).
The first type of shipping material that I want to talk about takes the form of little plastic bags. If you are unfamiliar with poly bags, then I really have to say that you have been missing out on some of the cheapest and most efficient forms of shipping supplies that are made today. Poly bags are great because they can come in all different sizes to fit a bunch of different products.
So whether you are shipping something as simple as box cutters or as complex as computer chips, you will find great success using this specific type of shipping supplies. I also love these things because they are as cheap as dirt and super easy to just toss away once you are done using them. This type of behavior may raise some questions as to the environmental impacts of using plastic bags in such great quantities to ship various consumer products, but honestly I could not care less about the environment. I mean, I’m only going to be around on this planet for maybe another 70 years or so; who cares what happens to the planet after I’m gone? Certainly the billions of people who will live on after me care, but I surely don’t.
Another type of shipping supplies that I want to talk about are different types of shipping boxes. This might be something that more people are more familiar with, especially if you have spent any amount of money online at websites like Amazon or Etsy. The great thing about shipping boxes is that they are super affordable and extremely durable compared to plastic bags. Though it is true that cardboard boxes do not behave well when wet (you may find that your box will fall apart, which is a huge bummer), I would argue that these types of shipping boxes are still great for all sorts of reasons that I could talk more about but don’t really feel like it.
