Few quick tips to help package and ship glass without damage

  1. Wrapping – This is one of the most important step. Wrap the product separately. If you are using bubble wrap to wrap the items, do not use excessive tape as it may lessen the effectiveness of the air bubbles. One of the advantages of using Hexcel Wrap, is that it does not require any tape for closure
  2. Cushioning: Select a suitable carton to house your glassware to fully protect your shipment for example cardboard or corrugated cartons. Now add the support to all the wall of the board so that there’s plenty for the items to rest on. After that insert the products and add void fill to remove the gaps to eliminate the wiggle room. Again if you see space fill the cushion into it.
  3. Now take the Shake Test – After filling all the material in the box/cartons, shake it to ensure that the contents do not move.
  4. Check for the potential for carton indentation: If your carton can be compressed in any way, this pressure can ultimately damage the contents. If you can press the lid in, add more void fill to stop compression.
