Our e-guide offers the building blocks of solid freight shipping, including:

  • Packaging materials – The quality and material of boxes, pallets and wrapping materials play major roles in the size, weight and structural integrity of your shipment. Use the right materials to protect packages while keeping costs low.
  • Pallet stacking and wrapping techniques – Sure, you could stack boxes on pallets without a second thought. But improper stacking could result in damaged items. With a little planning, you could put shipments in a stronger position to make it through the journey.
  • Freight Labeling – Sometimes boxes get lost, even if it was on a perfectly-packaged pallet. Labelling is critical to recover lost items, file claims, and most importantly, properly handle items.
  • Freight insurance and liability coverage – Freight shipping comes with inherent risks. Damaged product and lost items are unfortunate parts of transporting packages. But with the right coverage you can recover any losses to revenue.
