Transport Packaging Basic Rules

Transport packaging companies usually have a busy day, because this involves a lot of planning and preparations in advance. No one likes to receive a package which is damaged. It is usually the responsibility of the sender to ensure that the package is packaged well. Usually there can be accidental damage through transportation. Thus, before you choose to start your transport packaging business, you need to consider a few factors. There are a few basic rules of packaging, which need to be followed, if you wish to win the confidence of your customers.

Double Walled Boxes:

Good quality double walled boxes are easy to use. Buyers prefer to use these boxes as they can be reused as well. These boxes are also cost-effective, since they are light weight. However, when you are using double walled boxes for transporting goods, you need to ensure that your product stays well protected. You need to ensure that your packaged product is well secure and doesn’t move much, which can damage the product.

Food Packaging:

When you are moving food products you need to ensure that all products are packaged in food grade containers. These containers have air-tight lids which help in keeping the food safe for storage as they prevent the contact of moisture or other outside elements. If it is food packaging, you need to ensure that adequate temperature is well maintained so that the food does not deteriorate.

Do Not Use Cloth Bags:

If you are packaging a new product, which is delicate and might get damaged easily, you should stay away from using cloth bags or fabric. Though, this bag is quite attractive, it might not offer all the protection which is required. You can use a bubble wrap, if using a cloth bag is a must. You need to use a robust material inside the cloth bag, so that the contents are at no risk.


Labeling is quite important in case of transport packaging. When you do not label, it becomes extremely difficult to know what is packaged inside a box. Labeling with all important information like size of the product, nature of the product, distance to travel and other information is all important to ensure that there is safe transportation of the product.

Bubble Wraps Are Convenient:

Your package might be a big one or a small one. You need to use a good quality bubble wrap for adding one extra protective layer to the item. When you cushion the item, it helps in preventing the item from completely moving around. It offers good protection from any kind of accidental damage.

Check products before they are shipped. If there is any damage in the package, you should bring in changes in the box and then set it off. This will ensure there is no permanent damage to the products.

It is never a good idea to ship expensive items. In case you have no way out and you need to ship such packages, you can arrange for delivery in person. Having insurance is necessary to ensure that in case of damage before delivery, you as a packaging company do not have to bear the losses.
