How to Pack Heavy Items for Shipping
Packing and shipping heavy items can be complicated, here at Green Fulfilment we have years of experience packing and shipping items of all shapes and sizes and overseeing their safe onward journey and competition of fulfilment.
We understand that not all items are the same and require different sustainable packaging methods to ensure their safety during transit.
Heavy items require special consideration when it comes to packing them up for shipment. There are a few key things you need to consider when packing heavy items:
o The weight of the item
o The fragility of the item
o The size and shape of the item
You’ll need to take all these factors into account when choosing sustainable packaging materials that can protect your heavy items during shipping.
Heavy packages will be moved by warehouse equipment like forklifts, they will experience compression on all sides through stacking, and are more likely to shift during transit.
That’s why it’s important to use sustainable materials that can withstand heavy handling without compromising the safety of your product. Here are a few sustainable and reusable packaging materials that are up for the task:
o Recycled cardboard boxes
o Kraft paper
o Bubble wrap
o Foam peanuts
When it comes to choosing packaging materials for your heavy items, durability is key. Recycled cardboard boxes are a sustainable option that can stand up to heavy handling. Kraft paper is another sustainable material that can be used to reinforce your packaging. Bubble wrap and foam peanuts can help to cushion your heavy items and prevent them from shifting during transit.
