  • Unique packaging can be ensured by using the company labelled tapes.

How to fill in free space inside the packaging

  • Fill in free space between the content and the packaging to maximize the protection of your parcel content.
  • The following internal packaging is recommended: foam sheeting, plastic sheeting, encapsulated-air plastic sheeting or bubble wrap.

Securing and stuffing parcel

  • Secure and stuff the parcel inside so that it sustains 5x the static load of its own weight at minimum.

Stable position

  • When packing your parcel, bear in mind that it will be transported in its most stable position.

Repeated used boxes

  • If you use cardboard boxes repeatedly, do not forget to remove all outdated labels to prevent misrouting of your parcel.

Handling labels
