As with most common modes of transportation Air freight is handled several times during transit, often by different carriers. Shipit4us.com highly recommends practicing safe packaging to protect from scuffing, dropping, humidity and condensation.

Load your freight onto pallets or into crates or sturdy shipping containers such as corrugated boxes. Most carriers provide guidance for packaging. Proper packaging serves several purposes:

  • It protects the freight from handling and transit damage.
  • It protects other freight from being damaged.
  • It avoids loss situations, situations in which some of your freight is separated from the rest and lost in transit.
  • It protects the freight from being returned to sender.
