Learn about the most applied standards in transport packaging companies

Companies are increasingly adopting quality standards to ensure efficient operations and optimal service to their customers.
The objective of all transport companies that want to compete is to provide the service that their customers need and with the quality that they expect, every day. The companies that make up the freight transport chain are no exception; from the manufacturer of the packaging to the carrier and all indirect services such as freight forwarder, consignees, shipowners, packaging and mooring companies, ports or airlines.

However, for the process to work from start to finish, it must meet the quality requirements, all the companies that make up the chain must do so. For Jordi Moré, from the leading industrial packaging group in Barcelona Embalex, those ultimately responsible for delivery must pay special attention to three key points:
  1. Physical integrity of the goods, that is, correct stowage and lashing.
  2. Necessary conditions of the goods such as humidity, light, temperature or any other type of protection system.
  3. Deliver the correct amount consigned, to avoid possible theft or robbery.

In addition to the standards published by the Ministry of Development, quality-oriented companies implement international standards on quality management systems, such as ISO 9001:2015. Focusing processes and opportunities based on risk, thinking about continuous improvement.

In addition to this quality regulation, two main regulations have emerged in recent years. By definition, ISO 14001:2015 represents the correct application of processes to protect the environment, prevent pollution, use resources sustainably, mitigate climate change, and protect biodiversity and ecosystems.

Finally, the general regulations define the requirements for the implementation of occupational health and safety management systems, that is, OHSAS18001 (based on ISO-45001).

Juan José Salvador, Quality Manager of the Embalex Group, explains that, beyond their differences, the three management systems have three basic principles: Continuous improvement to continuously improve the company, Principles of Occupational Risk and Pollution Prevention; and promote efficiency and effectiveness to optimize the use of resources.

NIMF-15 regulation for heat treatment of wood in foreign trade
Heat treatment of wood
The heat treatment of wood is a critical process used to eliminate pests and diseases, as well as to comply with international regulations governing the trade of wood abroad. The NIMF-15 standard, in particular, establishes the requirements for the heat treatment of wood used in packaging used in international trade.

In this sense, heat sealing for wood packaging is an effective technique to ensure that these regulations are met. By using this technique, the risk of pests and diseases entering the destination country is avoided, which could lead to serious economic and environmental consequences.
It is important to mention that heat sealing for wood packaging is a process that must be carried out by trained professionals and with the appropriate machinery to guarantee its correct application.
