Requirements for packaging the shipments

Packaging the shipments is a very important part before commencing the delivery, for which is the sender responsible. The senders are very careful in Germany, but even so we do recommend to inform them about the importance of the package and about the requirements of the carriers. It is the best way to prevent any damages.

Send a request for packaging in a message (e.g., on eBay). It is very important for the shipment to be well packed with an undamaged package before each delivery so that it will take in consideration the character of the shipment, which means:

  • the contents were protected against damage or loss,
  • when handling the shipment, the outside package should allow a proper and safe handling during the transport of the shipment and it also should be properly equipped with a visible handling mark,
  • Do not forget, that the packaging of your shipment must allow a transport with other shipments within the car, but also with more than one reloading during the transport.
  • Use only strong, unused and closeable cartons. Make sure that all items are good packaged, are not overloaded and the blank spots inside the box are filled with the right fixative material.
  • Do not put in, fragile items together with heavy items into the same box.
  • Do not forget to use enough adhesive tape (Polyprophylen) which is meant for cartons packaging, it is heat and moisture resistant.

Requirements and recommendations from carriers

The filling inside the boxes

The boxes, which are not completely filled are going to fall down under the weight of other boxes. The box should be able to bear four to five times more of its own weight. The empty spaces inside the box are decreasing the weight which leads to crushing it. Before closing the package it is very important to make sure that all of the spaces inside the box are filled with padding material just as e.g., foam peanuts or corrugated paperboard.
