green bullet Modern meaning
In the modern context the box usually has the simple, down-to-earth association with shipping, courier services and storage. See for example the logo used by DropBox.

In reality though the box or square shape is far more common than that in logos, often used simply as a background shape or container for logo elements such as company initials.

The box is symbolically closely associated with the square and its meanings - notably honesty and integrity.
