Transport Packaging for Ocean and Sea Freight
Cargo ships carry the vast majority of goods destined for other countries and continents. Products destined for sea freight are either packaged into shipping containers or, when they are too wide or too tall, must be fully crated for the journey. Though ships can offer an exceptionally smooth ride, they present unique challenges as well.
ISPM-15 Standards Certified
ISPM-15 is a standard developed by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) that directly addresses the need to treat solid wood materials used to ship products internationally. It governs all wood packaging material (wood pallets, wood crates, wood dunnage, etc) used for export packaging, requiring that they be heat treated or fumigated with methyl bromide and marked with a seal of compliance. This seal of compliance is often referred to as the “bug stamp”
