Packing tips.
For trouble-free shipping.

Follow these simple rules and you can be sure that the consignment will reach its destination safely.

It’s important that the packaging is suitable for the weight of its contents so that it can protect your goods during transit. The packaging must be suitable for automatic sorting equipment.

In order to improve the delivery quality of your documents and small parcels, we can offer you packaging materials.

From 15.03.2013 all tires sent to Sweden must be packed separately. In case repacking is done at the DPD terminal, an additional fee is 5 EUR per item.

Recomended packaging

  •  There should be used crushproof boxes with equal edges, preferably new ones. An item is put into the box, void is filled with packing material that does not allow the item to move, crash and etc. It is not allowed to put more or bigger weight in to the box than it can withstand;

  •  Tender or fragile items are packed individually, preferable in the way they do not touch bottom and sides of the box;

  •  Packing material (bubble wrap, foam, corrugated cartoon, cotton-wool, cutting, material, special fixing foam (you can spay them between item and box to voids) etc.) should not be saved/retrenched for items stay stable;

  •  Items, sensitive to damp, dust, water need to be put in plastic bag;

  •  Small items, accessories, separate accessories are to be packed up in a bag, and then to a box;

  •  Strong adhesive tape has to be used (box has to be sealed with three layers from the bottom and the top);

  •  Cylinder or tube form parcels must have inner pivotal enclosure, so that can be avoided possible parcel damages.

Mistakes in packaging

  • Fragile and delicate items delivered in an unsuitably packed parcel (packed anyhow, not separated, touches each other);

  • Parcels on the palette are stowed so that while transporting bellow being packages doesn't stand structure pressure from the above packages;
