Welcome to the Packaging Guide

Helping you pack and package goods in a smart, safe and cost-effective way

It is important to pack goods correctly and choose the right packaging so they reach their destination undamaged. All parcels are machine sorted on a conveyor belt and transported by rail, air, road or bicycle. They are loaded together with other goods of varying shapes, sizes and weights. Your parcels and goods must therefore be packed and packaged to withstand pressure, shock and movement.

Should an accident occur and your goods are damaged in transit, you will be compensated only if the goods are correctly packed and packaged.
