Wood Packing Material (WPM) Requirements – All International
All WPM used for international carriage must be treated to kill harmful insects and stamped with the appropriate IPPC logo. Any untreated wood will be rejected for international transport. This applies to but is not limited to the following: pallets, crates, wooden boxes and pieces of wood used to support or brace cargo.
Pack all your merchandise in boxes or crates. NO loose/unpackaged freight will be accepted. Refrain from using bags or flimsy boxes. In addition, each box/crate must be properly sealed. Palletizing is required for shipments over 75lbs per piece or when shipping a large number of smaller boxes. When multiple boxes or crates are shipped loose, your risk for loss increases therefore all pieces should be secured to the pallet using shrink wrap or banding. It is also suggested to use cardboard or other protective layer around the cargo prior to shrink wrapping or banding. Other Freight will be consolidated with yours so ensure your cargo is properly packed and protected.
