TYPES OF PACKING:
- WOODEN CRATES
- WOODEN BOXES
- SEA WORTHY PACKING
WOODEN CRATES USED FOR PACKING:
Wooden crates are an effective means of packing and storage of engineering goods that are not prone to damage. They are also an economical way to transport material within the same region. This cost-savvy option not only protects against potential scratches, dents, and theft, it safeguards the equipment during the loading and unloading process.These wooden frames are typically just what they sound like: a basic structure that has no additional covering. One can easily look inside to observe what’s being stored. They’re mainly used to transport items without needing to be exceedingly cautious.
WOODEN BOXES FOR PACKING AND STORAGE:
Wooden boxes provide an ideal solution for packing and storing engineering goods. Not only do they keep items securely sealed and concealed, but their higher cost is easily justified by their reliability and durability. They can be used to transport smaller items in bulk and also to protect valuable materials from scratches and dents. Forklifts and cranes can easily move them, and with the contents completely hidden, the risk of theft is practically non-existent.
SEA WORTHY PACKING AND STORAGE:
The sea is the ideal means of shipping goods abroad; however, engineering products require special attention for packing and storage. This is due to the fact that engineering industry packing is one of the most costly types of packing. As such, many governments have put in place strict regulations for the quality of the packaging materials – usually wood – to be used.
- The heat-treated pine wood used should have a valid certificate from the vendor.
- It is also crucial to have proof of fumigation from the vendor.
- Furthermore, the shipping marks and country of origin should be plainly visible on the packaging.
- To make sure the item is in the finest condition, there should be silica gel inside the box to absorb any moisture.
