PACKAGING GUIDELINES

 

Packaging Guidelines
A handy guide to help you safely pack and send your parcels
To help ensure your parcel gets to its destination safely it's important you follow these simple guidelines to:
• Protect your item against damage while it is being transported and delivered.
• Protect other customers' items. You could be liable for damage to other items if it is caused by inadequate packaging of your parcel.
• Protect APD Contractors and equipment against injury or damage.
Your responsibility
As the sender, you are the only person who knows exactly what is inside your parcel. Therefore, it is your responsibility to ensure your item is packaged correctly and does not contain prohibited or hazardous goods.
By accepting a parcel APD does not acknowledge the packaging is adequate or the contents are acceptable. That is up to you. To check if your item is prohibited or hazardous,
Internal Packaging
Internal cushioning and strong external packaging protect your article against knocks and shocks. Cushioning material should be packed around all sides. Suggested packaging materials are:
• Handi Bubble Wrap
• Polychips
• Corrugated cardboard
• Shredded or rolled paper
• Polyethylene foam sheeting
Wrap the item enough times so that you can no longer feel the shape of the object. Items packed together in one container should be individually wrapped and separated from each other with more cushioning material.
If you are sending heavy items make sure they can't move within the parcel during transport, as this could damage the outer packaging.
