What Is Industrial Packaging?

Whether you’re a manufacturer, government employee, or aerospace engineer, it’s important to ensure that your products arrive safely. By consulting with an industrial packaging expert, you’ll better understand how to safeguard your products during transportation.

Industrial Packaging Prevents Product Damage

Our primary goal is to help you prevent your products from being damaged. There are many hazards that can occur during the transportation process. These include:

  • Uneven Roads: Single bumps in the road cause your parts to move around, dislodging certain components.
  • Wrong Packaging Materials: From steel to cardboard to plastic, there are many materials you can use to package your products. If you don’t know which material is best for your shipment, it’s best to consult with an industrial packaging expert. 
  • Water & UV Damage: Exposure to the elements can also place your products at risk.
  • Infestation: This is particularly common when shipping food products. The right packaging ensures insects, animals, and other pests stay clear.

With the right packaging, you can avoid these hazards. At Export Corporation, we have the training and experience necessary to protect your products. Call us today to learn more about our industrial packaging services, or to request a quote.

Which Materials Can You Use?

There are several types of materials that are commonly used in industrial packaging, including wood, stainless steel, corrugated cardboard, and plastic. Usually, some of these materials are combined, but the materials that you need to use will depend on what you are transporting.

For example, if you are shipping hazardous materials, you will most likely want to use plastic, while standard food products may need steel or other metal materials. Working with a packaging engineer ensures the right materials and combination of materials are being used before transportation.

Still have questions? At Export Corporation, we specialize in wood packaging and offer custom solutions to our clients in the aerospace, automotive, military, and commercial industries. Reach out to us today to see which type of material is best for your situation.
