Polystyrene bulk filler shavings, more commonly known as Packaging peanuts, offer many advantages. When poured into a box, they instantly fill the space around a product. They intertwine to form a matrix that surrounds objects during their time in transit. Because they are so light, they can help minimize shipping costs. The downside is that loose shavings are not popular with customers. They tend to mess when an item is unzipped.

The expanded polystyrene sheets can be used to align the boxes to provide additional protection to the contents in case the package is dropped or crushed. They are ideal for use as cushioning between layers of products within the same box. Different sizes and thicknesses are available.
