Globalisation and international trade require for us to speak openly and clearly. Internationally valid standards and directives constitute the basis for this.
Whether industrial packaging, seaworthy packaging, heavy goods, air cargo or packaging for machinery and mechanical engineering. Our customers come from a widely varied mix of industries with different requirements, and we provide customised and standardised export packaging of premium quality and in compliance with internationally applicable standards, such as IPPC and ISPM standard or the HPE and VOEST standard.
The VOEST standard is an internationally recognised packing guideline for seaworthy and warehouse-resistant packaging from Voest-Alpine Industrial Plants Division, Logistics.
Details of the VOEST standard
General packaging guidelines for seaworthy and warehouse-resistant packaging
The HPE packaging guideline was implemented by the expert committee of the “Packaging according to the HPE standard” work group in the German “Federal Association of Wood Packaging, Pallets, Export Packaging”, HPE (Bundesverband Holzpackmittel, Paletten, Exportverpackung, e.V.).
The HPE packaging guideline has defined minimum standards for load-bearing and stress-bearing packaging for the transport of technical goods. Its aim is the protection of such goods against the manifold strain they are subject to across the logistics chain so that the product is undamaged and can be made available for use at the destination.
ISPM 15 stands for “International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures for Wood Packaging Material in International Trade”.
This International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures is part of the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC).
The purpose of these measures is to avoid the import of wood pests to foreign ecosystems. Different treatment methods can be used to remove potential pests from the wood in accordance with ISPM 15.
State-of-the-art logistics is inconceivable without standardised containers. Around 90% of the general cargo shipped worldwide is transported by container today. The design of the ISO containers is defined in ISO standard 668.
The ISO Container Standard defines the guidelines for international ship transport and for steel sea freight containers.
