Due to the needs of the market, the carton factory has a wide variety of models and models. There are dozens of different specifications or models for a product that are common. Moreover, there are often cases where the same size and the same printing color appear in several different models, which causes difficulties for the carton factory in terms of production management.

Before re-applying the qualified product, the repaired product must be strictly confirmed that its model and specifications are in compliance with each other.

Warehouse storage, shipping process precautions

Storage cartons must be stored according to various models and specifications. Different types of cartons should not be stacked together. Due to the limited space in the warehouse, isolation measures must be taken between different types of products.

This is a problem often encountered by many cartons. For the prevention of such accidents, in addition to the explicit requirements of the leaders of the Ministry of Storage and Transportation regarding the stevedores, they must implement the isolation measures and carry out the model confirmation work after loading and unloading. It is not uncommon for cartons to be confused at the cartons factory after the stevedores have hurriedly unloaded the goods.
