How a pallet is packed and wrapped is at the discretion of the customer but it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that the pallet is packed and wrapped in a safe and secure manner. We do not make any recommendations but will check that it is safe for transportation. All product must be palletised with no overhanging as this could result in damage to the product.
Please ensure that you have printed your shipping labels and securely affixed one label on one side of the pallet. If you are using a packing slip, place it on the same surface of the pallet as the shipping label.
Do not place the label over a seam or closure or on top of sealing tape. Remove all old labels from the pallet. It is recommended that you place a duplicate of the shipping label or other form of identification inside your consignment.Top
