Packaging products for shipment is also another important step that cannot be overlooked! This process requires fluency on your destination country’s guidelines, that may be as specific as regulating the type of wood used for crating. Labels are yet another important factor that fall under this category as the type of good you are exporting may be subject to additional documentation, for example, if it is dangerous or hazardous good, which may lead to delays if improperly done.
Lastly, the importance of insurance for your cargo is crucial. Don’t worry about damaging weather conditions, improper treatment from third-party carriers, or other accidents that may result in damage or loss to your cargo. Protecting your shipment and ensuring your peace of mind is Packair’s primary goal as we place optimal importance on our customers’ satisfaction!
