Boxes are containers that are used to store or transport stuff from one place to another. Boxes are available in a variety of sizes and are usually square or rectangle in shape. Boxes are generally made from cardboard, plastic, wood or even metal. Corrugated boxes are used extensively in the packing industry. Boxes made from cardboard can be flattened before and after use. Wooden or metal boxes are like chests and are used to store things on a temporary or permanent basis and can be fastened with a clasp or can even be locked. Big boxes are used as containers in the logistics industry.
