A corrugated cardboard box is probably the most popular packaging box used in every application. It can be used on a single or double wall to form a stronger cardboard box for different purposes if required.

SINGLE WALL VS DOUBLE WALL CARTONS
Single Wall boxes are produced utilizing one layer of fluting. They are the most commonly used boxes for e-commerce shipping packaging, as they are a cheaper alternative to double wall yet still provide rigidity and cushioned protection required of a shipping carton. Single Wall boxes are reliant on the flute, to determine the properties of that case. For example, short flutes such as E, are able to withstand crushing far greater than a larger flute. Larger flutes such as B and C are able to absorb more shock and provide a greater cushioned protection, than the smaller flutes.
Double Wall boxes are constructed with two separate layers of fluting, generally in two types of flute sizes. The 5-ply construction strengthens the whole construction of the cardboard boxes, making them the perfect choice for heavier items or items which require a higher level of protection. The increased rigidity over the single wall makes double wall the ideal choice for utilizing in long-term storage. Double Wall Cardboard Boxes are generally used for moving heavy items, like moving house or long-term storage purposes.
