Gaylord Boxes & Lids – New & Used

This large bulk shipping cargo container, also known as the ‘Gaylord Box’ – is a two, three or four-walled large cardboard container used to transfer bulk product. Although they come in varying sizes, they’re usually approximately 48″ x 40″ x 36″ (approx. 120 cm x 100 cm x 90 cm) to fit on a standard shipping pallet. Utilizing these containers to combine several small shipments into a single shipment increases shipping efficiency.


A Gaylord box can hold large amounts of product and are strong enough to hold an incredible amount of weight. Since these containers when loaded can weigh in excess of 1000 lbs, they are stored on wooden pallets, commonly known as skids, which can be moved easily with a small forklift. Apart from this, Gaylord shipping boxes are easy to load and unload. Due to the strong design of the container, they can be stacked on top of each other (certain types).
