With the development of the economy, import/export goods and long-distance transportation are common to see. However, you often hear of damaged goods that have caused losses. What should be done to effectively prevent damage delivery? Stay tuned, with our years’ experiences in packaging solutions, we provide the THREE key methods in the following.
Method 1: Package
You must know the importance of an effective package, especially for long-distance transportation or export/import logistic. As long as you keep the points for packaging design in mind, the damage and collision of goods are greatly reduced during transportation.
The following 4 key points of package design that you must pay attention to.
1-1 Use A Sturdy Outer Box
Wooden box, Pellet, Corrugated Cardboard Carton
|Wooden box||Pellet||Corrugated Cardboard Carton|
1-2 Fill The Space As Much As Possible
Expanding Foam Packaging, EPE Foam, Bubble Wraps
|Expanding Foam Packaging||EPE Foam||Bubble Wraps|
1-3 Fasten the Goods Together
Edge Board, Stretch Wrap, Corner Protector, Dunnage Bag, Packaging Strap
|Edge Board||Stretch Wrap||Corner Protector||Dunnage Bag||Packaging Strap|
1-4 Apply Accessory Material to Draw Attention to Handlers Effectively
Fragile Shipping Label, Impact Indicator, Tip Indicator
|Fragile Shipping Label||Shock Detector||Tip Indicator|
Method 2: Accessory Packaging Material
Generally speaking, during chain transportation, there are lots of handlers. The shipper and receiver hardly determine the damage point and where goes wrong as the damage delivery unfortunately happened. Are your main products high value-added commodities, such as precision instruments, medical equipment, LCD screens, servers or solar energy? Any incident increases irreparable and high costs. Production cost, additional freight charge, lead time and goodwill causes unnecessary trouble.
In this section, we provide 2 accessory packaging materials for transportation, which has been proven to effectively prevent damage delivery by 70%!
2-1 Shock Detector
The shock detector we mentioned here is a shock detector for shipment monitoring. The shock detector has 5 types, each can detect a different impact force and drop height. The shock detector can accurately be applied to different goods. Its usage is very simple, just like a shipping warning sticker. You just tear off the sticker and apply it to your outer carton.
Under normal circumstances, the shock detector is white. Once the goods that contain the shock detector are dropped or impacted, the middle window will immediately turn red, indicating product damage. The red activation makes the shipper, logistic chain, and consignee react fastly.
The great advantages of using a shock detector are to remind the handlers of a careful handle and to provide smoking-gun evidence in case of damage delivery. Moreover, most handlers pay more attention to goods with shock detectors to avoid trouble.
There are 5 types of shock detectors, each can fit any type of package.
2-2 Tip Indicator
The tip indicator turns from silver to red on a plane greater than 80°. Its usage is as simple as shock detector. Just tearing off its back adhesive and apply it to the outer surface of shipments.
When the tilt angle of the anti-tilt label on a plane is greater than 80°, the indicator in the middle will turn from silver to red, and it is as simple to use as the anti-shock label, just tear off the sticker and stick it on the goods.
Under normal circumstances, the tip indicator remains silver, even if the airplane takes off or landed, the tip indicator will not cause error activation.
There are 3 types of tip indicators, each can fit any requirements of the package.
Method 3: Ship via Quality Logistics Companies
There are many logistics services in the market, but what are the conditions to be viewed as an excellent logistic service?
A high-quality logistic company usually has 3 traits as follows.
3-1 Complete Transportation Equipment
3-2 Transport Efficiency
The logistic company must be highly efficient to meet the needs of customers. Many logistic companies or express are able to deliver from place of departure to destination within 3 days.
3-3 Highly Rated
The logistics company ensures perfect delivery that the transported items are not damaged to the destination.
This is the main point that a good logistics company should have. You should choose a high-rated logistic company among logistics so that you don’t need to worry about the lack of experience and training.
Prevent damage delivery and add more protection for the goods are the obligations of an enterprise to the products. We should pay attention to these issues. If the quality of transportation affects enterprises’ reputation, it will be a great loss and not worth it.
As long as evaluate the 3 key points provided above, superb high-quality transportation is around the corner.
