How to Pack Guidelines

  • CDs/DVDs: Packing must be in padded envelopes or in blister-proof packing.
  • Sample medical vials: Must have adequate protection inside the packing so that the same do not move.
  • Shredded paper can be used for packing such materials.
  • Foodstuff samples like, Tea, Rice, Grains, Pulses, etc: Fabric-reinforced envelopes must be used. Plain covers should not be used.
  • Books: Must be packed in cartons / wooden cases. If in cartons, double strapping must be done to ensure that the contents hold together.

  • Electronic articles: Must be packed in adequate-ply corrugated cartons.


Some Useful Tips for Packaging International Shipments


No consignment can travel up to the destination in sealed condition. It will be opened and checked at various check-points. Therefore packaging must be strong enough to sustain the pressures of journey. Under any circumstances overnight, no one will be responsible for any damage/breakage of the consignment in transit.


  • Ensure that the packing box is suitable in size and strength to hold its contents.
  • Ensure that the cushioning material is stuffed generously in the box.
  • Use of strapping is a good way to seal the box as it supports even weaker boxes.
  • Fragile items should always be packed by a professional packer with proper markings indicating it as FRAGILE.
  • Ensure that specially designed boxes are used for packing floppies and video-cassettes.
  • Ensure that while packing sharp items like Knives, Scissors etc. the edges and points of these items are fully protected.
  • Shipments packed in wooden box should have an open-able lid, which can be opened and re-locked again and again.
  • Ensure that no single package weighs more than 35 Kgs.
