Export packing services
Rosewood has extensive experience of packing a wide variety of products for export. We can meet a range of packing needs from providing a single packer, who may be required for a number of hours only, to a multiskilled team for larger contracts. Packing can either take place at a customers’ premises, one of our facilities or another designated location.
Rosewood has served industries where products require specific treatment or bespoke methods of packing. Some examples are packing products that may be shock and vibration sensitive, products in clean-room conditions, or applying timber battening to immobilise deep sea umbilical cable reels.
Inner packaging can complement outer packaging in order to maximise product protection. The inner materials can be used to secure a product, to protect surfaces and to prevent damage from moisture and climatic conditions. There are many types available including, for example:
- Traditional padded timber battens and timber bracing
- Voidfill airbags, paper packing or loosefill chips
- Sealed barrier foil bags and desiccants
- Bubble wrap, polyethylene foam padding or thermoplastic protective sleeving
- VCI paper, polythene, powder, oil and capsules.
Some materials can be dual purpose. Part of the range of VCI paper, for example, not only serves as an anti-corrosion material but can also protect products from abrasion damage.
Rosewood’s packers are familiar with the standard range of shipping containers and methods of loading and bracing techniques. As well as supplying the more traditional methods of load securement such as timber and strapping, we can also supply container airbags.
In accordance with Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) directives, we can undertake the packing of a wide range of hazardous goods including paint, thinners and oil in preparation for transport by air. Rosewood can supply plywood cases and IATA 4 GV boxes that meet the UN criteria for packing and distributing hazardous goods. Rosewood also supplies vermiculite, a highly absorbent and fireproof loose-fill material that can retain leaks from packed materials.
