The 5 Packaging Tips For A Tougher Parcel Before Shipping It Overseas
Nov 13, 2018

Are you thinking of sending parcels just in time for the holiday season? This is actually a good idea – it’s fast, reliable, and secure – most especially if you work with the most reliable freight forwarding company in Dubai like Logtrans.

And before you even got these companies, you already need to make sure that you have packed your parcel properly so it won’t get damaged all throughout the shipping period.

To keep your items safe, you need to pack your things in the best way possible – and as a prominent provider of land, air, and sea freight services in the UAE, we know how you can do this correctly. And here are the tips that we will share with you:

1. You need to choose wisely what kind of box you’re going to use. You have to check if its outer layer is strong and sturdy enough so it can protect your parcel from inside out considerably. There are two types of boxes – single walled and double walled; opt for the latter as much as possible.

2. If you have multiple items inside your box, you have to wrap each with a bubble wrap, crumpled paper, or polystyrene chips, to make sure that each item is not touching and to prevent it from moving too much inside the box whilst transit.

3. When you close the box already, you have to make sure that you use the highest quality of the tape. You can double box if you like – to enhance security – just ensure that the edges are sealed and closed up neatly.

4. When you want to ship fragile, large, or perishable objects, you have to pay attention to these even more. You can actually ship them separately if you want – there are guides that you can follow and some freight companies will make sure that it’s delivered safely, just like how we do it at Logtrans.

5. And of course, one thing that you should never forget is to write clear and accurate address – you wouldn’t want your parcel to be delivered in the wrong place, would you? Therefore, write all the necessary information legibly and correctly as much as possible.
