UK-based packaging distributor Kite Packaging has introduced an advanced custom-size box tool designed to enhance the customer experience by simplifying the process of ordering bespoke-sized boxes.  

The tool, accessible on the company’s website, allows customers to specify their desired board grade, colour, and dimensions, for a box of their choice. 

They can select from four European Federation of Corrugated Board Manufacturers (FEFCO) styles, including 0201, 0203, 0426, and 0427, which cover 80% of most requirements according to Kite.

The tool offers further guidance on the strength and construction of these styles. 

The newly launched feature offers instant quotes for standard custom boxes and die-cut boxes without the need for registration, thereby streamlining the packaging procurement process. 

The tool allows easy navigation and input with a simple user interface and one-page layout. It also features flexible pricing tiers based on quantity.

In addition, the custom-size box tool provides access to stock options to match the needed dimensions and can request quotes on smaller quantities.

With this launch, Kite aims to optimise the buying process and provide a more efficient service to its customers. 

Kite managing partner Gavin Ashe said: “This is a fantastic tool for customers to use to get an instant quote on the most common box styles. For larger quantities and more complicated solutions, Kite’s award-winning design team are always available to help.  

“Our new custom-size box tool is all about saving customers time and money by giving them instant pricing and order capability, live on our website for simple and straightforward designs.” 

In January this year, Kite expanded its strapping range with the addition of new products to its portfolio.
