How to pack the cargo before loading it into the container?
It depends on the cargo. Good suppliers select the packaging based on how stable and durable the cargo is. The type of the cargo also plays a role. Proper packaging ensures the complete safety of your products during transportation and handling. Usually, most companies add bandel or lashing to the manufacturer's packaging or replace it with a more reliable packaging solution.
