Corrugated Box Styles

Corrugated box styles are widely varied to fill a variety of shipping and storage needs and come in many different shapes and sizes, but normally fall under one of several categories:

 

REGULAR SLOTTED CONTAINER (RSC) – CODE FEFCO-0201

This is the most common box style – a standard shipping box, where the flaps fold down and meet in the middle.

HALF SLOTTED CONTAINER (HSC) – CODE FEFCO-0200

A standard box with no flaps (open) on top.

OVERLAP SLOTTED CONTAINER (OSC) – CODE FEFCO-0202

A standard box with the top and/or bottom outer flaps partially overlapping.

Overlap Slotted Container (OSC)

 

FULL OVERLAP CONTAINER (FOL) – CODE FEFCO-0203

A standard shipping carton where the top and bottom flaps overlap each other. Offers more strength for heavy objects, and provides more rigidity to minimize flex.

TUCK REAR TOP CONTAINER WITH TUCK FRONT BOTTOM – CODE FEFCO-0211

SNAP BOTTOM CONTAINER WITH TUCK TOP – CODE FEFCO-0215

The four flaps that form the bottom panel are die cut. To set up, the user folds the largest bottom panel first, then the two end panels. When the remaining bottom panel is folded and pressure is applied near the center, the flap “snaps” into the slot created by the other panels.
The style is convenient for small-volume shippers who do not have automatic set-up equipment. Because the bottom is not fully sealed, it may not be suitable for heavy products.

SNAP BOTTOM CONTAINER WITH RSC TOP – CODE FEFCO-0216

Same as FEFCO-0215, replacing the tuck top configuration with RSC style flaps.
