Any suggestions for artwork packaging?

I work for a company that ships mounted photographs on a regular basis. Can you recommend any materials for packaging that is almost as durable as plywood, but lighter and cheaper?

The way we package things right now is based on the artwork itself. For things mounted to aluminium, dibond, or acrylic or custom frame, we will actually build custom heavy-duty crates for them. For things mounted to foamcore or gatorboard, we are currently wrapping the artwork in foam, then with many pieces of cardboard and then plywood on the front and back. We want something lighter and easier to handle but also just as durable. Also, the other problem with this is that the corners aren't necessarily protected. We are considering masonite. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
