Packing Methods & Specialized Packing

All of our packaging methods utilize the quality assured global standard of ISPM-15 rated lumber.

Standard Export Packing
Standard Export

During the standard export packing, the commodity is secured to a solid floored skid.  Lumber used in the construction of the crate are certified ISPM-15. The skid design is based on weight, dimensions, and configuration of equipment. The openings are then sealed and all critical surfaces are cleaned and coated with preservative. The skid and equipment are enclosed in a water-resistant lined case. Case requirements vary according to the weight of the equipment. The entire case is sheathed with exterior grade plywood. The thickness of the plywood is determined by the size and weight of its contents and lined with a specialized waterproof paper. Case markings are included in all packing methods.

VCI (Vapor Corrosive Inhibitor) Packing
VCI (Vapor Corrosive Inhibitor)

During the VCI packing method, the commodity is packaged similarly to the standard export packing method with additional steps taken to assure that all equipment is preserved during exposure to changing temperatures. Those steps include enveloping the equipment with a custom made VCI bag. This bag is coated with a film which emits gases carried on the atmospheric molecules and dispensed into the air condensing on all exposed areas offering protection. VCI is an acronym for Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor. Protecting equipment, in a VCI bag, is recommended for domestic shipments as well. Equipment that is traveling inside of a closed van can collect condensation very quickly when subjected to temperature fluctuations. This packing method would be most effective on metals.  If there are plastic parts, the recommendation would be to pack with the MVP process.

MVP (Moisture Vapor Proof) Packing
MVP (Moisture Vapor Proof)

During the MVP (Moisture Vapor Proof) packing process the commodity is packed similarly to the standard pack method with additional steps taken to assure that the equipment is protected from the corrosive air moisture. This is our premier packing product as it offers the most protection from temperature fluctuations and deterioration and destruction of the packed product caused by exposure to the atmospheric corrosiveness during export. The product is specially mounted to a skid and enveloped inside a custom-made vacuum sealed bag. All openings are sealed. A calculated amount of desiccant is placed within the bag to absorb any moisture. Steps are then taken to protect the vacuum seal and assure that the pack is not compromised.

One of our clients had traveled to a plant where MVP crates had been stored outside and had been exposed to a typhoon. When opened, all equipment was in pristine condition.

Heat Shrink Wrapping Packing
Heat Shrink Wrapping

This form of protection is ideal for sealing your cargo, either by itself or after it’s packed as a final layer of protection. We offer Heat Shrink Wrapping as a standalone service as well as an addition to above packaging methods.

Specialized Packaging

Jan Global offers specialized packaging based upon our clients exact needs. We understand that not all cargo is the same and we offer any combination of services to reflect that. Tip and Tells and Shock Watches monitor the safe travels of your cargo while it is in-transit. Shock Mounting (To prevent damage from sudden shifts in position or vibrations) is available as an added layer of protection.

Rail Car
Available Services

Additional services for all pack methods include shrink wrapping, air banding, shock mount, foam lining, tip n’ tells, shock watches and canine vents. For air shipments, all crates require air banding, regardless of packing method, as this is a TSA requirement. Shock mounting is recommended for anything with computer components, glass pieces or everything of a delicate nature. Tip n’ tells and shock watches will indicate whether the freight has been properly handled once it reaches its destination.
