Effective export packaging enables your valuable freight to arrive at the destination intact and undamaged. Export packaging is also often referred to as transport packaging. Transport or export packaging is the outermost layer of packaging and is designed to protect your goods during transit.
It is predominantly used by organisations that are shipping high value, sensitive or delicate machinery or expensive goods that must be kept in perfect condition whilst in transit.
There are many factors to consider when thinking about getting your valuable freight to its destination. Goods going to the wrong place or getting lost or damaged in transit can lead to costly replacements and delays.
An export packer must assess the freight, transport method and routes to ensure that correct materials are selected and design suitable packages. Weight and physical sizes of the freight are a particular consideration – to ensure the packages can go on standard type vehicles or shipping containers.
We have successfully utilised export packing for many previous projects with machinery being moved to worldwide locations including Malaysia, Indonesia, USA, Mexico and Australia. Everything from small pumps and ancillary parts to single oversized pieces weighing over 25-tons. We also use export packing materials in the UK for clients looking to store equipment long term and locations in Europe – to ensure that the freight stands the best chance of arriving in the expected condition.
If you are planning to move your valuable assets to a new location, we would strongly recommend you consider how you pack your items for transit.
