Cleaning Supplies Packaging Tips


Thorough Inspection: Inspect the products being shipped, looking for punctures, tears, broken seals, and leaks, among other major product defects. Product defects are likely to cause accidents, so do not ship cleaning supplies with any damages.

 Dense Packing: Strategically pack the cleaning supplies closely together to prevent movement. Frequent movement during transit can lead to damage. Pack cleaning supplies closely, preferably within a sturdy cardboard box or plastic crate.

Labeling: Choosing the correct hazmat label and shipping label is critical. Ensure to include the appropriate hazmat and shipping labels to avoid fines, delays, and increased inspections. Refer to the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) to determine the class of your cleaning supplies. In addition, the MSDS is required to be included, along with other shipping paperwork.  

Insurance: Regarding freight shipping products, purchasing insurance is always recommended. While the value of the cleaning supplies might not be high, it is best to mitigate the costs of potential damage risk and prepare for the unexpected. Insurance can often be purchased through a 3PL such as FreightCenter or the individual carrier. FreightCenter can work with you to ensure you have the most comprehensive insurance coverage.


Proper packaging and shipping should be stressed more for those shipping cleaning supplies. Shippers must understand the rules, regulations, and packaging requirements for shipping cleaning supplies; failure to do so can prove disastrous for both shippers and freight carriers. According to the PHMSA, every year, undeclared aerosols, cleaning supplies, flammable liquids, and corrosives are the most common undeclared goods involved in Highway Shipping incidents.
