Packing Your Holiday Shipments the Right Way

The holidays are here, and the shipping industry is soon going to be seeing a huge spike in shipments. Businesses and individuals alike will be sending holiday shipments to destinations across the world. In the rush to get your packages out on time, it can be easy to make mistakes packing your shipments. That’s why we’ve come up with a short list of tips to help you pack for safe holiday cargo shipping.

                 • Use sturdy boxes and shipping containers—Make sure you only use new or like-new boxes for your holiday shipments. Avoid using boxes that have tears, holes, gashes, or that are bent up and no longer have complete structural integrity.                  • Get all the necessary packing materials—To protect your goods inside the package, you need to use packing materials like bubble wrap, packing peanuts, Styrofoam, and packing tape. Don’t try to skimp by using newspaper to pad your items; it won’t offer complete protection.                  • Check the labeling for accuracy—Before you send off your packages, double-check the labels to make sure all information is provided and is correct.
