Extra - Packaging

Did you know that the choice of packaging must be in accordance with the characteristics of your goods?
All goods transported need appropriate packaging, in closed boxes and with the proper wrapping.
Packages are divided into three categories: primary, secondary and tertiary.

The primary packaging is one that is in direct contact with the product, the secondary is one that groups together the primary packaging, the tertiary consolidates large quantities of products and is suitable for storage and / or transport safely, maintaining the integrity of the contents.

Geocargo supports and provides secondary and tertiary packaging.
  • The secondary packaging are the freight boxes, for storage or transport. Or folding boxes, corrugated cardboard, etc.
  • Tertiary packaging - more resistant materials, for example: different types of corrugated cardboard, of various thicknesses, or wooden containers, pallets, angles, plastic film.

Advice and requirements

A. Close the packages
For primary and secondary packaging we can use adhesive tapes, industrial staples, adhesives and glues, cable ties or stretchers.
For the tertiary packaging: it’s necessary to use film to cover pallets, with the main objective of guaranteeing their protection. Or else, the stretch film with high resistance to tearing and capable of wrapping these formats. Likewise, it is also important to use angle brackets, which avoid bumps, or cardboard dividers that keep the load even more secure..
B. Interior padding and packaging protection
The use of correct security material in primary and secondary packaging allows shipments to reach their recipients in perfect condition: bubble wrap, foams, filling chips, air bubble plastic, padded envelopes, among others.
C. Packaging labelling
Provides information on how to handle the submission. For example: fragile product, hazardous material, position indicators or overturning. Not only do they identify a company's brand, they also record batch codes, expiration dates, barcodes or even nutritional information.
Consult us about Legislation and regulations that regulate the characteristics of packaging, such as, for example, technical standards (standards such as ABNT or ISO), international transport standards (for example, International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures nº 15 or ISPM-15), legislation relating to the environment or regulations affecting the handling and marking of dangerous goods.
