Rules for the transportation of fragile goods


If the load is not packed by the loaders themselves, then you should purchase stickers for marking and warn the loaders about the fragility of the load. The safety of things depends on the quality and reliability of the packaging. In many bodies, you can secure everything with special fasteners or pack things very tightly, but if you can’t put them this way, then foam plastic or other materials are placed between the boxes or boxes. When loading, heavier boxes are placed on the bottom, and lighter ones on top.

CARGO CLASSIFICATION:Rules for the transportation of fragile goods
To transport fragile cargo, you first need to decide which category it belongs to, there are three in total.

Fragile items: vases, electronics, glass, windows, aquariums, sculptures, crystal, some building materials. Their integrity can be damaged not only due to careless handling, but also due to weather conditions (changes in temperature or humidity).
Expensive items: antiques (paintings, dishes), safes, musical instruments.
Flora and fauna: flowers in pots, animals.
For the first and second categories, durable packaging (packing paper, cardboard boxes, film, wooden boxes) and soft lining (film with bubbles, polystyrene foam) are suitable. This will ensure that the load is secured inside the box, and additional security can be provided by a tight load inside the machine or belts.

As for the third category, there will be some difficulties with packaging plants, as well as if they require additional transportation conditions, such as temperature, light, moisture, and so on. To transport animals, enclosures and transportation documents are required.
