# Cardboard Box Dimensions

Cardboard box sizes are always measured on the inside. The sizes are almost always expressed by length x width x depth. The term cardboard box is hardly used by manufacturers because it is generic. Instead, the box is referred to by its material (i.e., paperboard or corrugated fiberboard).
