Many companies opt for transporting their goods by container as sea freight because costs are lower compared to air or land transport or on account of the size of the packaged goods.
Sea freight has its own laws, though! The specific climatic influences such as moisture, heat and cold as well as mechanical stress must be taken into particular consideration with seaworthy packaging.
We offer needs-based sea freight packaging custom-tailored to your special requirements and your transport goods, while paying attention to optimal size and design for storage in the container or ship. Our packaging solutions are designed for challenging environmental influences, e.g. salty sea air, strong temperature fluctuations and persistent humidity. From an individual machine all the way to a large-scale plant to be transported by ship, we ensure that your goods are protected optimally and draw up customised packaging suggestions in this regard.
When transporting goods via sea freight, it is particularly important that all requirements be met in terms of stowage, customs as well as export/import regulations. As experts in wood transport crates, we comply strictly with all necessary regulations and guidelines of the destination countries, e.g. import regulations for wood packaging, the ISPM 14 Directive according to IPPC standard as well as the requirements of the shipowning company.
“Wood transport crates are subject to special conditions. The FAO (Food and Agriculture Organisation) of the United Nations has been providing the international framework for the protection of plants from the introduction and spread of pests for more than 50 years. Wood as a natural, sustainable raw material can be seen as a risk in this context. For this reason, the ISPM 15 Directive must be adhered to in order to avoid penalties or even the stop of the delivery.”
