How To Ship Using Custom Shipping Pallets In Orange CA
Good packaging makes it easier and safer to transport stuff. Therefore, mastering how to pack your freight is important. Here’s a guide on how to ship using custom shipping pallets in Orange CA.
Choose the right packaging
Part of our freight packaging solutions is helping you select the right container for your products. Choose something that is sturdy and not damaged. This will provide the right support to the load it’s supporting. It shouldn’t easily warp or deform. Go for a standardized board, as it’s easier to lift with a forklift.
Pack your products well
Seal each container. Fill up all the empty space. Create a padding for the products to minimize the chances of them getting damaged. Use padding to fill up any unoccupied space. There should be a balanced weight distribution to provide stability. Heavier items should be at the bottom of the stack.
Load it up properly
For the load to be stable, you need to stack it up properly. There are different ways of doing this. You can use column or interlocking stacking. Secure your load using any of the available materials like bracing or using an edge protector. Avoid overloading it, such that some stuff is overhanging from the board.
Each box should be properly labeled. Put the label on the side. The delivery address should be on the side where the delivery person can easily see it. The labels should be accurate. Avoid misspellings or incomplete labeling. It could lead to delays, as the container can end up being shipped to the wrong address. Remove any markings of the previous address, if you had used the container before.
Our normal and military packaging service have different costs. This is influenced by the original and delivery location, weight, dimensions of the freight and other things. Always be accurate when providing information about your freight, so as to get the correct quote on Bill of Lading.
