My Supplier Changed Liners

Tyler asks:

I have just found out that my supplier has not been making my 44 ECT with 55 or 56 liners.
How should I respond to that?

If your supplier(s) choose to change the board combination and increase the bending stiffness of the combined board – a good thing – then you need to adjust your scoring accordingly so that the boxes will erect without any adjustments by your customer.

Make sure they are supplying you a minimum of 52# ECT for incoming sheets so that you can ship a minimum 44# ECT out the back door.
