Exports between countries is the order of the day, that is why more and more companies are encouraged to embark on this world to continue expanding. This decision is not an easy task when it comes to ensuring that the product arrives in perfect condition.
When the decision is made to send merchandise internationally, a preliminary study must be carried out to have under control issues such as analysis and study of the market, financing, means of payment, viability, taxation or documentation. Choosing an industrial packaging company is a complicated decision as a series of factors must be guaranteed to ensure that the service is adequate and the merchandise arrives in perfect condition.
What type of product is going to be transported?
First of all, it is important to know which product is going to be shipped as this will affect the type of packaging and its characteristics. For example, if the product is solid, you should opt for folding wooden boxes such as Madperf, which are ideal for their great resistance to water and humidity. If, on the other hand, the product being transported is liquid, the most convenient option would be to use liquid containers such as Flexitank , ideal for transporting oils, juices, water, wine and detergents, among others.
What means of transport will carry out the export?
It is another determining factor when choosing between one type of packaging and another. If the merchandise is to be made by air transport, it is recommended to use lighter packaging services to try to optimize the weight as much as possible and to make it safe for the transport of the product. If the shipment is made by sea transport, it is necessary to choose the industrial packaging that best adapts to the adverse conditions such as corrosion and oxidation typical of the maritime environment, such as VCI aluminum and desiccant salts.
Where will the product be shipped?
The place of destination is another fundamental factor since it must also be taken into account when choosing one type of packaging or another. If you want to send a product to a geographical area with extreme weather conditions, it must be taken into account when preparing the packaging, so that the product arrives in perfect condition. The country they are shipped should also be taken into account as regulations may change in the destination country.
It is clear that the choice of a good packaging company is vital to guarantee the safety in the transport of goods and the reduction of costs. Each packaging project is unique, and needs a personalized prior analysis to guarantee the best service.
