Minimum size of a package must be sufficient to attach a packaging label of 100 mm x 150 mm to one of the sides of the package. Maximum dimensions of a package (pallet) – 1200 mm x 1000 mm x 1700 mm.
If a package is too small, it is difficult to attach a label to it and if the label is unreadable, the package cannot be transported. If a package is too large it cannot be accommodated into the vehicle and cannot be transported.
Goods or valuables may not protrude out of the package and/or palette, because any protruding parts will be damaged during loading.
Maximum weight of a package (pallet) may not exceed 700 kg. Heavier pallets must be divided into several packages that would not exceed the maximum weight.
A package must be sufficiently durable to make it possible to lift the package held by its sides without any items contained therein falling out. A package may not contain more goods than the package can accommodate.
Only new rigid corrugated cardboard boxes, envelopes or plastic bags shall be used for packaging. Packages will be placed on top of each other, so their sides must be rigid to withstand the static load without collapsing.
Packages stacked on a pallet must be rigid so that they would neither press each other nor slip to the sides. To this end, sufficient amount of shrink wrap must be used.
Filling hollow packages
Hollow packages must be filled with packing material (paper, shaving, cotton, plastic foam, bubble wrap) to absorb shock. If hollows are not filled, items inside the package will not be stable, knock against each other and against the packaging thus standing a risk of sustaining breaking or other damage. Items inside a package must not touch the sides of the package.
If liquids are sent in tanks or special containers, make sure that their lids are protected, i.e. the lids may only be opened by removing the security seal.
Corrugated cardboard boxes must be taped with adhesive tape wrapped around the box in three places at least. If too little adhesive tape is used the box may fail to hold the items in it and open.
We suggest using special adhesive tape with logos that cannot be purchased without placing a special order.
