Types of corrugated cardboard and types of paper
One of the main characteristics that characterize corrugated cardboard is the type of paper used for it. Two main types of paper are used: kraft (for the outer cardboard layer) and test liner (for the middle - corrugated and inner layer). Kraft paper is of higher quality and is made from virgin fiber. Kraft paper is stronger, suitable for printing. Also, paper can be of various weights, which is measured in GSM (grams per square meter). The most commonly used in industry is 125/150/200/300 GSM, which you will more often see as 125KT etc. i.e. This would be 125 GSM paper with the outer side being kraft and the corrugation and inner layer being test. 

Types of cardboard
One of the simplest ways of sorting cardboard boxes is according to the amount of walls and their thickness. The strength of the box and the weight it can support depends on its size and the type and/or strength of the corrugated cardboard (as well as the overall quality of the construction). Double-walled boxes are generally used for large and heavy items. Thus, single walls are used for lighter items up to 10 kg, and for large cardboard boxes, extremely strong double-layer cardboard is used.

The most common types of cardboard: 
Single walls
Type B - 3mm 
Type C - 4 mm - for items up to 10 kg 
E groove - 1.5 mm - ideal for e-commerce. 
Double walls 
BC groove - 6.8 mm - combination of type B and C 
EB Groove - 4.5 mm - Combination of Type B and E 

Box styles
You will often see the FEFCO code on cardboard boxes. The FEFCO code is an internationally applied design system for corrugated cardboard packaging. It lists the type of box designs most commonly used, with a code number assigned to each design.

FEFCO's most popular style for shipping and delivery cartons is 0201, which is a flap box with both ends sealed with adhesive tape. Versions with side handles are available. FEFCO 0427 style boxes are more commonly known as quick-close (postal) boxes. Pallet boxes, these are especially large   cardboard boxes suitable for placing directly on pallets, can be glued or stapled (stapling is the most suitable method if you plan to transport goods in sea containers).
