The goods come in different shapes and sizes, and each has its own packaging requirements.
Why package your goods?
As we all know, travelling by road, air or sea is not smooth sailing. All the small bumps and vibrations will hustle around your goods and may potentially cause damage.
But using the right packaging can minimize shipping damage.
The actual cost of damage is much higher than what you first thought of:
Time lost for arranging replacement
Replacement of goods
Time spent dealing with unsatisfied customers
Disposal of damaged goods
Preventing goods against damage is important.
