Just as important as how you contain the contents of your shipment, is how you package them on the inside. You need to ensure that the contents of your shipment are properly protected. Use any combination of:
- Corrugated fibreboard
- Moulded plastic materials
- Loose shredded paper
- Bubble wrap or bubble pack
- Plastic or foam “peanuts”
Use enough material (at least two to three inches on each side) to ensure that the contents of the shipment do not shift significantly during shipping. Also, wrap items individually to further protect them. If the package contains fragile items, be sure to write “FRAGILE” on the outside of the container.
Tip: It’s a good idea to include copies of all paperwork inside the package in case anything gets misplaced.
