At Navigators, we take complete care of every shipment we handle to ensure safety of cargo in transit. There are many ways to achieve cargo safety during land transport. Here are a few basics we suggest:

Right Packaging

Choosing the right packing materials is critical to preventing shipping damage. Also, providing the best protection to your cargo will ensure that the freight can withstand the travel en-route.

  • We help you choose the right container for your shipment considering its size, scale, value and endurance.
  • Using good quality pallets and wrapping the goods properly help significantly.
  • The pallet should be larger than the product that it is supposed to hold because if it hangs around the edges there are chances of collision with other goods.
  • Distribute weight evenly so that there is balance.
  • For transporting fragile items, air-ride suspension will prevent damage.
  • Double-box items if the goods are heat-sensitive.
  • Do not cut back on packaging materials as it will pay back in other forms.

Good Outer Material
  • A tough outer cover ensures that the product gets good protection from any kind of damage.
  • Polybags can be used as the outer material as it helps preventing water seepage.
  • For shipping small goods, padded mailers work well as they are cheap and effective.
  • For larger items, a flat-rate mailer or a corrugate box is good as it is rigid and provides the right safety for the product inside.

Right Freight

We have often observed that products get damaged during the initial transit from the manufacturer to our warehouse. To curb this common issue, our logistic services include picking up goods from the sender’s doorstep to dropping it off at the receiver’s place. This ensures that the goods reach the receiver in good shape on time.

Stack Properly

Apart from choosing the right packaging material and pallets, placement or stacking of the goods must be planned carefully. A general rule followed while loading is to stack like bricks to distribute weight evenly. Also, fragile goods must be handled separately. Do not leave any empty space between boxes as this can result in tipping and falling during the transit, damaging the products inside. Make the cargo compact so that there are no void spaces.

Label the Boxes

To handle fragile goods, giving special care, while transporting your goods ensure that it is clearly marked outside the package. This helps the people handling such packages a clear indication. Small measures like indicating which side should be up and which side should be down, prevents mishandling. Also, provide us with detailed instructions on how to treat the products if they must be handled differently.

Insure Your Products

Though insurance cannot prevent damages, it surely reduces the financial burden involved if something goes wrong before it reaches the customer.

Shipping is part and parcel of doing online businesses. Sturdy packaging can prevent most of the issues that crop up during land freight. Navigators Shipping & Logistica LLC is committed to ensuring zero-risk shipping and logistics in all its operations.
