Packaging Principles

1.  Understanding the packaging principles of SF Express will help you to have the know-how in packing your shipment, to prevent from any damage or loss. 

     The principle of zero damage

     A well packed parcel could help to prevent your shipment to be damaged from leakage and / or deterioration that caused by friction, weight and pressure from the outside during transport.

     The principle of safety handling

     The packaging must be suitable for the nature, status and weight of goods. 

     The principle of appropriate packaging

     It is necessary to choose the right packing box and fillings stuff based on size, weight, and transport properties of shipment. 

     The principle of tight packaging

     The packing box should be filled with your pieces, protecting materials and cushions. Make sure to protect your  pieces perfectly and stuff cushions to avoid friction and squeezing during transport.

     The principle of fragile protection

     Please wrap the ceramics, glass products and other fragile goods with bubble bag to give better protection. Each of  these kinds of good should be wrapped and packed by the bubble bag, paper foam and other anti-shocked materials. 

2.  SF Express offers standard envelopes, packaging bag and carton box without charge.
