Why collect goods.
Economical: Collecting goods can improve transportation efficiency and reduce transportation costs. When multiple goods are packaged together, the waste of space and human resources can be reduced, and the separate transportation cost of each goods can also be reduced.
Environmentally friendly: Consolidating goods also helps reduce packaging waste and pollution. By packing multiple goods together, unnecessary packaging materials and waste can be reduced, thereby reducing environmental pollution.
Safety: Consolidation of goods can improve the safety of goods. When multiple goods are packaged together, the placement and movement of the goods can be avoided, thereby ensuring the safety of the goods during transportation.
Why repackage the goods.
Protect the goods: During the transportation process, the goods may be affected by extrusion, vibration, friction and so on. In order to protect the integrity and safety of the goods, it is often necessary to repack the goods or strengthen the packaging.
Comply with international shipping standards: Different countries and regions have different trade regulations and standards, such as packaging requirements, size restrictions, etc. In order to ensure that the goods can pass through customs inspections and comply with local regulations, it is sometimes necessary to repack the goods.
Adapt to different transportation methods: For different transportation methods, the goods need to adapt to different packaging forms. For example, shipping by sea requires more durable and waterproof packaging, while shipping by air requires lighter packaging.
Improved Appearance: When doing international trade, the appearance of goods is also an important way of presentation. If the packaging of the goods is old or damaged, it will leave a bad impression on customers. Therefore, sometimes it is necessary to repack the goods to improve the appearance of the goods.
To sum up, international logistics goods need to be repackaged mainly to protect the goods, comply with standards, adapt to the mode of transportation and improve the appearance of the goods.
