Packing tips

WORLD LINE CARGO INC. is committed to delivering your parcels fast and safely. However, you must bear in mind that parcels are handled several times during transit. Here is some useful advice about how to properly package your parcels to make sure they are delivered in the best condition.

Our customers are solely responsible of properly packaging their parcels to make them safe for transportation. WORLD LINE CARGO INC. does not take responsibility for this advice we offer.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, REMEMBER THAT PARCELS MUST BE PROPERLY PACKAGED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CONTENT OF EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM. Don’t assume that the “Fragile” or “Handle with care” labels may compensate for proper packaging. These are only informative labels.

YOU SHOULDN’T DO THIS (Most common MISTAKES):

1. Don’t use duct tape as it can easily peel off as shown in the photos below:

2. Don’t leave empty spaces in your boxes/parcels. Parcels that are not full may bend and break during transit.

3. Don’t use paper adhesive tape. It is the worst quality tape as it tears very easily and is not resistant enough.

4. Boxes weighing more than 30 kg break and tear because of their own weight

5. Don’t use raffia bags. We strongly advise against using them as they tear very easily

EXAMPLES OF PROPER PACKAGING:

Wrap parcels in plastic foil or paper and use scotch tape all around them, on all sides. You MUST wrap luggage/suitcases and plastic boxes in plastic foil:

Use wood boxes or pallets for packaging very fragile or heavy items:

Packaging of vehicles such as motorcycles, ATVs, snowmobiles, cars, or tractors is recommended, though not necessary:

Proper packaging for furniture:

Goods/parcels/boxes are handled manually both in Canada and Romania. Parcels are placed one on top of another in the warehouse, in the container, as well as during delivery to their destination in Romania.

WE CANNOT ensure a specific position, temperature or handling during shipping.

Should you have such requirements or other special needs (such as handling, warehousing or shipping), please contact us in advance.
