Tips for Overseas Crating and Shipping
Whether you’re exporting personal or business goods, it’s important to understand the stress that shipping puts on crate contents. If you’re packaging contents for a trip abroad, take measures to avoid impact harm and moisture damage. Large shipments often travel by ocean vessel, and they’re frequently loaded by chute, sling or conveyor. Each of these loading methods causes cargo stress, so it’s important to palletize and brace all items properly.
Moisture is a concern in overseas shipping due to condensation buildup in the cargo hold. Remember to wrap art and valuables in waterproof coverings and include packaging material that is soft and moisture-resistant. When possible, avoid packing additional liquids that might leak during transport. Check with your freight company for specific shipping exclusions.
