One Industry That Loves E-Commerce: Cardboard
from the growing-rapidly dept
Well, here’s an industry that you probably don’t think too much about (and certainly didn’t expect to see discussed here): cardboard. It turns out that, thanks in large part to the growth in e-commerce, the cardboard box industry is booming. All those individual orders require their own cardboard boxes, as opposed to the old “ship ’em to the store” technique that required either a single large cardboard box or (gasp!) no cardboard at all for things delivered on large pallets. So, forget technology, maybe the future is in corrugated paper.
