Exporters must know the global transportation conditions, especially on collected goods. They should remain in mind these four possible problems in the design of export pallets and cases: precipitation, excess pressure, damage, and pilferage.
In general, they are transported in containers of cargo. However, at times, they are shipped as cargo merchandise. During transport, the goods can come into hard touch with or pile on other products. The humidity was a constant concern, condensation may develop while cargo is kept in the vessel even if the vessel is equipped with dehumidifiers and air conditioning.
Some buyers are familiar with foreign port systems so that they specify packaging requirements, otherwise, the products must be prepared often using the following guidelines:
* Pack in solid containers, filled and sealed sufficiently.
* To provide a good bracing in the container, ensure that the weight is distributed evenly.
* The goods must be palletized and containerized where possible.
* Both packages and load must be made of moisture-resistant material.
* To prevent pilfering, to brand names or not write the content on the packaging. Use gaskets, belts, and shrink wrapping.
* Use Container carriers or private leasing companies. Such containers vary in size, construction, and equipment and can accommodate most goods.
* In general, air shipments require less heavy packages relative to ocean expeditions, but they have yet to be adequately protected, especially if they are very pilferable.
