well, even if you can pack more into a box sometime you would be better off not to overload. There are TWO ways to fill a box... Volume, and Weight.

In my business some of the worst boxes that the UPS Gorillas have ever brought in were TShirt boxes. They are so heavy for their size and they get crushed and hardly hold their shape. Check your boxes for their WEIGHT rating. It may be printed on the bottom somehere... Asian cardboard is pretty bad!

Find a supplier with free freight or close enough to go and pick them up.

If you are shipping and shipping 1000 pieces then a freight company would be a lot less than a carrier like UPS or FEDEX Ground in most cases.

haha.

im just really trying to work out if im better looking for seperate shipping for a quote ive been given, so im trying to get rough ideas, but this is important stuff im probably overlooking too.
Hi Andrew,

1000pcs, could you tell us your size range, ratio for 1000pcs? the gsm? if you want to pack the goods with less cartons and minimize the cubic meter of total cartons, it is better to order separate cartons as per your t-shirts specifications.

By the way, for your reference. For US men's size M, 6.5oz s/s t-shirt, 1 cubic meter can pack more than 800pcs, but less than 1000pcs.
