Guide to Freight Packaging

Freight packaging is an essential aspect of shipping goods around the world. It helps to ensure that items arrive safely and securely at their destination. There are several elements to consider while preparing to package freight;

Freight Packaging Guide


  • Packing material– selecting appropriate materials for the packaging is essential. This includes choosing the right box type and cushioning and wrapping materials to protect the item being shipped. It’s also advisable to use strong tape or straps to seal the box to keep it secure during transit.

  • Shipping labels– it’s essential to label the package correctly. A clear address label should be attached firmly to the box, along with other necessary instructions, such as “Fragile” or “This Way Up.” Additionally, a detailed product description should also be included on the shipping label to help in tracking and identification at the destination.

  • Shipping method– it’s crucial to ensure that the package is appropriate for the practice of transportation. If the compacity is too large or too heavy, it may be rejected by the carrier and could lead to damages or lost items.

  • Consider Insurance– consider insurance for your shipment. Packaging is the best Insurance; however, depending on the value of the goods shipped, it may be wise to purchase additional insurance coverage. This will help ensure that you are adequately protected in case of loss or damage during transit.

By following the tips outlined above, FreightCenter customers can be confident that their packages are packaged and shipped safely and securely. For more information about freight packaging, contact FreightCenter for assistance or get a free online quote today!
