Packaging Guidelines

Step By Step Procedure

1. Use a corrugated box or a rigid carton of adequate strength
2. Check the weight specification of the box / carton
3. Do not over-stuff it and do not exceed the weight specification
4. Provide internal protection with adequate cushioning material
5. Use strong tape designed for shipping. Tape should be at least 2″ wide, but preferably 3″ wide
6. Use proper labeling that clearly shows Origin and Destination address, including phone numbers and PIN codes

Some Packaging Suggestions

1. CDs/DVDs: Packing must be in padded envelopes or in blister-proof packing
2. Sample medical vials: Must have adequate protection inside the packing so that the same do not move
3. Shredded paper can be used for packing such materials
4. Foodstuff samples like, Tea, Rice, Grains, Pulses, etc: Fabric-reinforced envelopes must be used. Plain covers should not be used
5. Books: Must be packed in cartons / wooden cases. If in cartons, two strappings must be done to ensure that the contents hold together
6. Textile goods: Must be first wrapped in polythene or any suitable waterproof material and then covered with strong Hessian / Jute cloth
7. Electronic articles: Must be packed in adequate-ply corrugated cartons

Some Useful Tips for Packaging International Shipments

No consignment can travel up to the destination in sealed condition. It will be opened and checked at various check-points. Therefore packaging must be strong enough to sustain the pressures of journey. Under any circumstances Star World Express will not be responsible for any damage/breakage of the consignment in transit.

1. Ensure that the packing box is suitable in size and strength to hold its contents
2. Ensure that the cushioning material is stuffed generously in the box
3. Use of strapping is a good way to seal the box as it supports even weaker boxes
4. Fragile items should always be packed by a professional packer with proper markings indicating it as FRAGILE
5. Ensure that specially designed boxes are used for packing floppies and video-cassettes
6. Ensure that while packing sharp items like Knives, Scissors etc. the edges and points of these items are fully protected
7. Shipments packed in wooden box should have an openable lid, which can be opened and re-locked again and again
8. Ensure that no single package weighs more than 35 Kgs
