Proper Packing

Proper packaging is a must.

Don't ship your goods without proper protection. Many claims and damages arise from improper packaging -- and packaging errors may eliminate your carrier's liability.

The pictures below should help you visualize how to best package and secure your goods.

When possible, heavy, bulky items should be placed on pallets for improved handling. To maximize carton strength, stack cartons on the pallet vertically. You can secure cartons to a pallet with banding, shrink-wrap, stretch-wrap, or breakaway adhesive.

Cartons should be stacked squarely on the skid, with no overhang. Box flaps and corrugations should face up. Be sure the top surface is flat.
