    Deadlifts, squats, good mornings, GHR's, reverse hypers and any other posterior chain exercises.

    If the boxes are easy to handle then any of the above would be good.

    If the boxes are very large/cumbersome in addition to being heavy then it will be more a matter of figuring out how to best handle the boxes rather trying to build up strength to "brute force" carry them. If this is for a job trying to work *hard* instead of just emulating the guys who have been doing it for years will make you very tired & slow regardless of how much weight training you do.
