The Fibre Box Handbook was first published in 1919 as a handy reference to the railroads' new requirements for corrugated boxes. Over the next 70 years, 18 more editions of the Handbook were published. During these years, the contents of the Handbook were gradually expanded, but the core of the book remained unchanged. Changes in industry regulations beginning in the 1970s prompted a redefinition of the Handbook, and the 20th edition included a major redirection, complete revision of existing material, and expansion of the contents.
The currently available 75th Anniversary edition is a full resource for those who use corrugated or work in the corrugated packaging industry. Inside you'll find a wealth of information about: corrugated's history; its diverse applications; a range of common box styles; rules and guidelines governing its effective use; testing procedures ensuring optimal performance; and even corrugated's stellar role in the environment.
The Handbook provides designers, engineers, buyers, sales personnel, students and all corrugated packaging employees with the knowledge necessary to succeed in the corrugated industry.
It's available for purchase in printed, digital and bundle version at the FBA Store.
