What Are The Rules For A Proper Packaging?

Logistic services reserve the right to reject those packages that do not meet the minimum-security requirements and the proper packaging.

Items that are extremely fragile or heavy require special packaging for safe shipping. The steps below should be followed when packing your shipments to ensure the safe transportation of the contents.

  1. Protect Content

Pack each item separately. Try to keep fragile items as far apart as possible, from the corners, and from the sides of the box, to reduce the chance that they might break or be damaged.

A wide variety of materials can be used for cushioning and protection. These include bubble wrap, molded foam (a foam that compresses and forms protective molds around the contents), corrugated cardboard dividers, and strong packing paper or crumpled newspaper.

Use enough cushioning material to ensure that the contents cannot be easily moved. Several centimeters of cushioning material around the contents should be sufficient.

  1. Close It Firmly

To securely close the box, use a strong opp tape (เทป opp, which is the term in Thai), designed for shipping. Do not use masking tape or clear cellophane tape. These tapes do not provide the strength necessary to keep packages tightly closed.

Do not use string or wrap the box in paper, as these can tear on automated equipment, resulting in loss of address labels or package contents.

  1. Use Appropriate Labels

For correct and on-time delivery, keep these points in mind when addressing the package:

  • Always include the complete consignee address with zip codes or as applicable in each case.
  • For international shipments include the name of the contact, telephone number and postal code or as applicable in each case.
  • Always include the full return address.
  • Computer and electronic equipment must always travel with their original packaging.
  • Chemical or pharmaceutical merchandise that is affected by the Dangerous Goods Regulations must be packed and identified according to IATA standards.
