Choosing a timber packaging company
You may not think it, but choosing the right timber packaging company is important. Without proper quality packaging, your goods may not arrive at their destination intact and undamaged. Choosing the right packaging company for the transportation of goods can help to avoid this.
Timber packaging solutions are durable and versatile. They are suitable for shipping and storing a multitude of different items, are shock-resistant and easy to carry.
Durable and renewable
Timber is resilient and hard-wearing, which makes it a perfect material for use in transit packing. If properly maintained, the material can be of good use for many years. This saves businesses even more money, as they don’t have to repurchase packaging annually. The renewability of timber is also hugely beneficial, as timber products can easily be repurposed, for a wide range of alternative uses.
People want to make the best choice, and they tend to base their selection on the timber packaging company that appears most exceptional. Why not take a look at the company’s reviews and testimonials on their website? This will give you a clear indication of where the company ranks in their credibility.
Certifications and accreditations
It’s important to take a good look at the certifications and processes a company offers. This is essential when choosing the correct packaging company for your specific needs. Check whether the company is a member of the UK Wood Packaging Material Marking Programme (UKWPMMP) and The Timber Packaging and Pallet Confederation (TIMCON). Are they fully ISPM15 compliant and audited on a bi-annual basis? ISPM15 is the internationally agreed standard for the treatment of all forms of packaging made from solid wood and helps protect the world’s forests from disease and trade from costly delays. It is imperative that you check credentials to ensure they are meeting the industry’s exact specifications.
Ability to custom make
Make sure the packaging company you choose can give you options to make custom packaging solutions to suit your needs. Custom packing cases, crates, wooden pallets and clever design solutions can help you to reduce your transportation costs. This way, the products or items they are being used for can be protected properly.
