The preparation and packaging of shipments involves placing the item content in appropriate packaging (blister, box, suitcase, etc.). The proper way of treating the shipment is our common task:
The cardboard should be firm and undamaged. It is not good to use a packaging that was previously wet, even if it is dry at the time of packing because it loses its strength.
Pack the shipment so that it can be transported in any position, the safety of transport should not depend on the position of the box.
Glass and other fragile and sensitive items: These shipments must have the indication “FRAGILE” on the package and must be packed in such a way that there is no individual movement and contact of items within the package.
The package must be fixed and filled with appropriate protective material, such as styrofoam, paper and the like. Thus we provide maximum damage prevention for such shipments.
If the shipment involves a liquid substance: These shipments must be sealed in leak-proof containers, and such containers must be placed in a sturdy box, filled with suitable material, which can absorb liquid if the vessel fractures. It is particularly important to protect the content from leakage in an appropriate way, to prevent jeopardizing other items in group shipments.
If the contents of the shipment involve an oily substance: These shipments must first be put in a box, cloth bag, plastic bag, etc., and then into a solid package that should prevent content leakage in case of a damaged shipment.
The important point in shipment handling is that it is necessary to keep the arrow indicated on the package facing up during lowering, handling, storage and so on.
How to seal the package safely?
Glue, adhesive tape, duct tape, stretch film, etc. can be used to seal the package, depending on the type and value of each individual shipment contents. Shipments that are submitted in a closed envelope must be secured so that their contents or parts thereof cannot be removed without visible damage to the cover.
