Packaging for every type of goods

 

 

 

  • Section I GLASS BOTTLES

Bottles must be transported in compliant packaging, approved by the carriers because they need a particularly strong packaging that allows them to be immobilized inside the box in which they will be placed.

  1. Always check the integrity of the bottle and make sure that there are no defects in the closure system.
  2. The bottles must be wrapped in absorbent and waterproof materials.
  3. Place the bottles in crates with separators and anchoring points, polyethylene air chamber packaging or polystyrene tubes.

Improvised packaging with pluriball, styrofill and/or newspaper sheets are considered inadequate by the insurance in case of damage as they do not guarantee the complete amortisation of the bottle in case of sudden movements.

It is advisable not to send bottles containing liquid with other types of goods (clothing, books, etc.). In the event that the liquid should spill due to poor packaging, incorrect closure of the bottling line, lack of absorbent and waterproof padding or due to manufacturing defects of the material not thoroughly inspected previously, the sender of the shipment will be held solely responsible for any damage caused to his or other packages.

ARTICLES WITHOUT INSURANCE COVER

Please note that food products in general, solid and liquid, perishable and non-perishable and / or vacuum, regardless of the type of packaging provided are part of the items without insurance coverage for which you can not make any claim in case of damage and / or loss.

  • Section II ALUMINIUM CANS

With Packlink you can send aluminium cans or tins with a maximum capacity of 5 litres containing, for example, olive oil. For each package we recommend to send a maximum of 10 liters of oil because, given the delicate nature of the content, it is better to avoid making packages too heavy and therefore difficult to load and unload for couriers.

  1. Always check the integrity of the aluminium can and make sure that it does not have any defects in the closure system.
  2. Use a cardboard box, preferably with a double wave, placing at the base a sheet of polystyrene of minimum 5 cm that will serve as a protective base for the cans. Then place the cans inside the pack and fill all the empty spaces with the polystyrene sheets. The cans must be completely covered with polystyrene and must not touch each other at all.
  3. Conclude the packaging by placing one last sheet of polystyrene on top of the cans and finally close the box by sealing it with packing tape.

It is advisable not to send cans containing oil and/or different liquids with other types of goods (clothing, books, etc.). In the event that the liquid should spill due to poor packaging, incorrect closure of the can, lack of polystyrene padding or due to manufacturing defects of the material not thoroughly inspected previously, the sender of the shipment will be held solely responsible for any damage caused to his or other packages.

ARTICLES WITHOUT INSURANCE COVER

Please note that food in general, solid and liquid, perishable and non-perishable and / or vacuum, regardless of the type of packaging provided are part of the items without insurance cover for which you can not make any claim in case of damage and / or loss.

  • Section III FRAGILE GOODS

With the Packlink web portal, it is not possible to confirm special dispatch services - SHS Special Handling Health & Safety or SNS Non-stackable Merchandise - dedicated to the dispatch of fragile items.

You can still send fragile goods with special attention to packaging. Since the goods are handled by machines and belts in the hub routes, they must be prepared to withstand a free fall height of about 1.50 m.

Even if the words "Fragile" are applied to the outside of the package, we cannot guarantee in any way that the courier will particularly manage the collection, movement and delivery of the goods.

  1. With fragile objects, always uses double wave boxes to protect the products from impact and maintain rigidity, even if stacked one on top of the other.
  2. Insert a filler under, above and to the sides of the fragile object with a minimum thickness of 5 cm so that the object remains positioned in the centre of the box. You can use common polystyrene chips and air cushions to fill in gaps and block products.
  3. Always use foam cushions that perfectly match the shape of the object and protect it from knocks. Simply place one above and one below the product.
