One of the most important aspects always resides in delivering the merchandise to the destination in the shortest possible time and ensuring optimal transport and that it does not damage the cargo. This ranges from the manufacturer of the packaging, to the carrier that later makes the delivery.
Here, intermediate services are also taken into account, such as freight forwarder, consignee, shipowner or packaging companies; The degree of satisfaction of the end customer depends on all of them. For this end-to-end strategy to make sense and be effective, everyone must perform their task as efficiently and effectively as possible.
There are three key points that must be constantly monitored:
In the first place, the maintenance of the optimal state of the merchandise , and by this we mean both lashing and the choice of a good industrial packaging that provides the necessary support for the merchandise to be transported.
Control and security during transport is a simple point, although many companies do not strictly comply. Each packaging company must keep a rigorous control of the merchandise and especially protect itself against theft and loss.
Finally, the conditioning of the space necessary for certain goods is essential. And with this we are taking into account the temperature, light, humidity and other protection systems.

- ISO 14001: 2015. It certifies a correct application of the processes from an environmental point of view.
