Packaging your Shipment – 3 Tips to Save You Money
Regardless of which shipping carrier you select – proper care in packaging your shipment is vital to ensure correct, fast and easy delivery.
Here are three tips on packaging your shipment for a successful journey, with no added fees:
- New corrugated box: Use a new corrugated box whenever possible. A new box ensures extra protection, as a used box will have lost some of its original protective qualities.
- Protect your goods: Anything shipped unpackaged (such as articles that are not protected by rigid shipping containers) are subject to special handling charges.
- New labels: If your only option is to re-use a box please make sure all labels and/or markings that are not relevant to your shipment are removed and/or completely covered up to avoid confusion.
