Our series on “Have you Considered?” has all been about highlighting topics that we can take for granted, our recent post regarding packaging is one of these topics.
It is taken for granted, more often than not, that if you are buying from an overseas company who facilitate selling their goods to an international market that they know how to package goods or will ensure goods are adequately packed for export.
A question we are often asked is “how can we ensure that goods will be packaged adequately?”, the answer to this question is to check, check and check again. In your initial confirmation of purchase advise of your expectation on packaging, communicate with your freight agent your expectation and have your freight agent express further the expectation on packaging.
To provide further assurance on the standard of packaging, we would suggest to engage in a pre shipment inspection service, Personalised Freight Solutions can provide some direction in this area, please contact us via email / phone / Social Media to be provided further information,
