A corrugated cardboard box is probably the most common shipping container used today. 

Corrugated paper was patented in England in 1856, but corrugated boxboard was not patented until 1871. Brooklyn printer and paper-bag maker Robert Gair invented the pre-fabricated paperboard box in 1890. By 1895 the first corrugated cardboard boxes were being manufactured in the US. By the early 1900s, corrugated paper shipping cartons or boxes began replacing wooden crates and boxes as the shipping container of choice. Wells Fargo and Kellogg’s Cereals were among the first companies to use corrugated boxes for shipping their product.

Corrugated cardboard is made of paper and consists of an arched layer or "fluting" sandwiched between two layers of smooth paper called the "liner". Corrugated cardboard is classified according to the size of its fluting. Common flute sizes are "A", "B", "C", "E" and "F" or micro flute.

The most common cardboard box style is the Regular Slotted Container (RSC). All flaps of the box are the same length from the score to the edge. Typically, the major (top) flaps meet in the middle and the minor (bottom) flaps do not.

AAA Box Company is a corrugated box supplier because corrugated cardboard boxes are economical, durable, versatile and recyclable.
