This need for extra materials may feel like an afterthought, but there are many things to consider when selecting a void filler. This is where Summit comes in – we have the technical expertise to help you select the right kind of void fill packaging, and the resources to keep you in constant supply. 

What is void fill cushioning?

Packaging fillers such as bubble wrap, crunched paper, or air pillows can be wrapped or placed around fragile items to soften the blow of an external impact. Void fill cushioning materials are also essential for reducing the space a product can shift in its parcel. We can assist you in minimizing shipping costs by optimizing dim weight, without compromising on protection integrity.

Void filler is not one size fits all; tissue paper won’t protect breakable products like air pillows or bubble wrap will. When you work with Summit, we’ll take the time to understand your specific business needs, so we can recommend the perfect void fill packaging option. If we know where and how your products are being shipped, we can determine what level of protection is needed. Our goal is to provide you with a void filler solution that consistently prevents product breakage. 

Other packaging variables to consider are:  

  • temperature controls (cold-chain shipping) 
  • anti-static for electronic devices
  • corrosive inhibiting materials for certain metals
