Precaution measures for Breakable And Fragile Items During Shipping and Forwarding Procedures

If the item being shipped via Conway shipping and forwarding is fragile like electronic or glass items, you need to wrap items separately to prevent damages occurred during the Conway freight transport process. Most freight forwarding companies ensure all shipments reach their destination without any damage but if the items are fragile and not protected when crating them, they can get damaged.

Always keep the non-fragile and fragile Conway freight shipment items separate to reduce chances of damage. Make sure to pack up the individual crates fully to the maximum extent to prevent cargo movement inside the crate. Tightly packed items will not shift that much when they are being shipped.

The business of crate Conway freight shipment is labor intensive and all measures taken to keep Conway freight together will make shipping as well as crating an easier process.

Wood Crates Are the Best for Shipping and Forwarding

From our experience, we understand that wooden crates are the best way to transport Conway freight items and such crates can be designed as per any size, packed in any manner and have the ability to contain any kind of weight.

If the objects within the crate are more solid there are lesser chances of damage to Conway freight or crate. Every item needs to be wrapped as well as packaged separately using bubble wrap, cloth, paper, expandable foam or packing peanuts. Items need to be packed in boxes firmly with adequate spacing between inside objects and box walls.

Shipping and Forwarding Requirements: Complete Crate Packing

It is a good idea to pack the crate to its maximum capacity to facilitate more solid pieces when shipping Conway freight. Chances of inner shifts are minimal in this manner and in the case of shipping by freight forwarding companies, the basic rule of thumb is that heavier items are placed at the crate bottom and lighter items placed on top. If filling the crate to maximum capacity is not feasible, use packing material to fill up empty spaces in the crate. This minimizes crate shifts internally. If the Conway freight items can be reassembled, disassemble the item and place individual components inside the crate. This will minimize freight damage risk during shipping and forwarding.
