Choose 60-80microns hotmelt glue adhesive LDPE polybags

Inspect the polybag for any damages
Ensure the opening is sealed properly after the packing of item
Packing of item
Packing an item involves leak proofing, cushioning, placing of the item and filling of the voids in the box. Enough cushioning needs to be provided to ensure no loads are transferred to the item.
Bubble Wrap
Foam sheets
Internal Packing material vs functionality
Leaking Proofing
Liquid products need to be made leak proof before cushioning or packing. Common leak proofing techniques are mentioned below.
Heat shrink sleeves
Taping of bottle caps
Zip lock or leak proof pouches
Sealing os Shipment
Sealing ensures that the properly packed item is secured and intact inside the box throughout the journey of the shipment.
Use Pressure Sensitive Tapes such as BOPP
Seal the center seam of the top and bottom of the box
For heavy shipments, apply H-Taping by sealing both the center and edge seams on the box
Shipment labelling
Proper labeling is crucial for faster and safe handling of the shipment in reaching the intended destination.
Barcode height (min. size : 8 mm)
Waybill number and Barcode (min. size : 8 MIL, 1MIL= 0.2032mm)
Order number and Barcode (min. size : 8 MIL, 1MIL= 0.2032mm)
Consignee address (min. font size: 8pts, Calibri body)
Return address (min. font size: 8pts, Calibri body)
Retail/Tax Invoice
Paste the label on a seamless flat face of the box/flyer
Paste the label away from seams or edges of the box
Readability of barcode is important for faster and correct processing of shipments
In flyers/polybags, all the essential data on labels should be visible and the label should be placed flat
The pocket containing the label in flyer should be taped at the opening to avoid the loss of label
Thermal printed labels are strongly recommended over regular labels

Special handling labels
Special handling labels helps in communicating the necessary information for appropriately handling the shipment.
