Export Packaging

Unlike other suppliers FSC Global provide export packaging as standard, it’s all part of the service. We will select the most appropriate option to ensure that your goods arrive in perfect condition regardless of how far they have travelled.

Below are some examples, if you have a preference please let us know when you make an enquiry so we can be sure to meet your needs.

Plywood wrap with steel bands
This method provides a high level of protection whilst keeping weight to a minimum making it particularly suitable for airfreight shipments.

Wooden battened with steel bands
This type of packaging is very strong however it does increase the shipping weight, it also consumes a lot of timber so it’s not the most environmentally friendly solution.
To keep in line with our environmental targets we favour plywood wrap however this option is available if required.

Palletised with shrink wrap plastic
Goods packed onto strong softwood pallets shrink wrapped with LDPE plastic provides the perfect solution of small drums or multiple item shipments.
The pallets are reusable and the LDPE shrink wrap can be reprocessed through plastic recycling facilities.

ISPM 15 Compliance
The ISPM 15 directive helps to prevent the worldwide spread of plant pests and diseases by regulating and using chemical or heat treated wooden packaging material.
We use packaging complaint with ISPM 15 regulations where applicable, this ensures your goods do not get stopped at point of entry by customs.
The packaging carries the wood packaging directive logo for identification, if required additional compliance certificates can be supplied with the shipment.

Container loaded
If we are loading a container for you we will pack individual items and pallets using the methods above and then pack the whole container with equal care.
The warehouse facility has container loading ramps and forklifts designed for use inside a container.
This enables us to move the goods around gently and avoid any damage being caused.
All the goods are then secured for sea freight shipping and the container sealed on site.
