Factors to Consider in Export Packaging

Written by  Super User

International shipping puts a number of demands on exporters. There are four potential problems to keep in mind when designing export packaging: breakage, excess weight, moisture and theft.

Export cargo is generally carried in containers. Besides the normal handling encountered in domestic transportation, a shipment transported by ocean freight may be loaded aboard vessels in a net or conveyor which puts added strain on the package. Woven cord strapping can absorb impacts and load shifting that would normally break steel banding. During voyage, goods may be stacked or come into contact with other goods. Once overseas, cargo could be dragged or dropped during unloading.

Avoiding damage to your cargo is the main purpose of export packaging. One of the reasons that containers and pallets have become so standard is that they combine efficiency with unmatched cargo protection.

It is important to take steps to prevent cargo from being tampered with or stolen. Containerization helps with this and using secure polyester cord strapping makes tampering even less likely.

Export packaging should adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Provide proper bracing in the container ensuring that the weight is evenly distributed.
  • Goods should be palletized and whenever possible containerized.
  • Packages should be made of moisture-resistant materials.
  • To avoid theft use cord straps and seals.
