What is Crating in Exports and Imports copy

Crating is one of the methods of packing goods.  Normally crates are made with wood so as to accommodate the whole parcels to safeguard properly from damage.  The crates protect   the goods from damage.    The chances of damage with other goods in transit do not disturb crated goods if well crated.   Some of the buyers particularly insist suppliers to pack materials with crates to avoid any type of damages to the material.

 

Normally, crates are made with woods. Before crating, the supplier must make sure that the woods used for crating have been treated with necessary chemicals and fumigated to make free from dangerous organisms.  Most of the countries demand these procedures with Certificate evidencing on fumigation.   Crating has to be effected in such a way to accommodate the required goods in good condition.  Proper nailing and fixing of each wooden material is required so as to enable  the handling crew to move the crates  without any trouble or damage to cargo.
