Do you need a packaging solution suitable for food and beverages or other goods going into a retailer? Echo Cartons can help with one of our half-slotted container boxes that are made using quality corrugated cardboard.

A HSC is especially useful when an open-top container is desired. A half-slotted carton makes a convenient and simple retail end of line bin display.

HSC’s are also particularly handy when you need a cover or lid that can be repeatedly removed and replaced. They allow for protection and also easy access. In this case we can provide a separate lid.


Half-Slotted Cartons are highly versatile, allowing Echo Cartons to adapt to a huge variety of sizes. With understanding of your product and needs, we can ensure you get the sizing and strength required to ship your products safely and display them with pride.

The Half-Slotted Carton (HSC) is much like the Regular slotted Carton but with flaps only on one end, leaving an open top on the other end. It therefore enjoys many of the benefits of the RSC style including being a highly efficient use of material. There is very little off cut waste in an HSC design, making it not only cheaper, but better for the environment.

The Half-Slotted Container style box is extremely fast to manufacture on high-speed machines. This significantly reduces production costs and allows you to have product delivered in the fastest possible time frames.

At Echo Cartons, our state-of-the-art flexo folder gluers can produce HSC’s plain or printed according to customer needs.

What are HSC boxes used for?

HSC’s are great for shipping product to store and then displaying product in bulk. In fact, some major retailers insist on this style with an insert used through the delivery chain. We have the experience to ensure your packaging meets the retailer’s needs. We can help with getting the printing and design up to required specifications.
