Learn about how to choose a Hong Kong shipping company for moving here

Business,Business News,Import - Export
While hiring a ocean transport company to ferry your goods, check whether they understand the different kind of hazards and packaging requirements for different items. If they can handle the hazards on sea, you can safely hire them.

Arranging your things properly is the key to ensure that your long distance ocean cargo shipment reaches its destination safe and securely. Proper packing of things need not to be very difficult and stressful. All you have to do is understand what kind of product you are going to pack what kind of material is required for that sort of stuff. You also have to understand the different weather your cargo will go through and what type of material will be used to store it. Below are the some tips you can use while working with an ocean freight forwarding agency.

Check whether they care for and understand the hazards at all. When the shipping company will transport your goods, it will go through a wide range of odd environments. Whether due to natural calamities or from carelessness while transporting, your things can become unusable and completely damaged when it will reach its destination. For example, the boxes may turn and/ or bounce inside the container. It will result in puncture or scrapping of the package or the items inside. Different degree of temperature, humidity and air pressure is another likely hazard. And more to it, your goods can be completely smashed if they are not staked properly or handled badly. Before you hire any ocean transport company, make sure they understand these potential hazards of shipment.

Check whether the freight forwarding agency using the right kind of packaging material. In general, while shipping a delicate item, it is put inside an outer case, and the inside is filled with bubble wrap, Kraft paper or foam peanuts to keep the product intact inside the case and this inside filling gives the outer box more strength to hold the inside stuff. Most packaging company prefers corrugated cardboard as a packaging material because it is very solid and durable.

While planning for packaging with a Hong Kong shipping company, use minimum material to cover your goods. That way you can ship more stuff in a single container and as a result of this, your over all transport cost will be lower.

Make sure your transport company is aware of different staking options and configuration. Check how they keep products on the pallet. In a single file, or using an interlocking system or cases are hanging over the side of the pallet. If the cardboard boxes are kept in a single file, it will increase the compression strength of the packing cases. If they use interlocking system it would be more stable and boxes will not fall or tip which is common problem with column method. And if the boxes are hanging over the side of the pallet, it will reduce the compression strength and will cause all kind of damages including punctures, tears, and others all kinds of shocks to the product.

If you have large items to ship, be absolutely sure that the transport firm can really handle this consignment. When you have some specifically over sized items which will not fit inside any standard cargo container, you may need some special type of packaging to protect the goods during transit. Shipping oversized item have a peculiar problem. You have to forklift it once or twice even for packing it. And after the packing is complete, lift the packet from both end and check whether it is dipping at all or not. If it dips, then more back up is required in the packaging before you ship it.

If your are sure that the shipping company understand the packaging needs of different type of goods, you can safely hand them over your items even for the longest roots and to the most remote location. They will be able to keep them safe during the transit.
