The principle of no 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, paper foam and other anti-shocked materials.
