FEFCO is as an official system for corrugated boxes

A code is developed by FEFCO as an official system for descriptions of packaging with simple symbols internationally understood by all.

When you see a size for a box it is always written in this order:

Length x Width X Height mm

Many of the FEFCO boxes can be modified and used as bespoke design variants. Usually all packaging outers are one piece and consist of fitments or platforms for unique product items.
