On the back of dealing with two leading glass manufacturers in the UK we proudly added another to our list this month.

Our first contract win with this new customer was to design several timber cases with relevant export packing components to transport 23 sheets of 6ft x 4ft glass from Manchester to Germany.

Packing our customers products is a very delicate process, with glass, even more so. This particular export packing project is on-site at the customers premises.

Typical Export Packing Stages

1. Product Survey – Visit the clients site to measure all product dimensions and check suitability to pack on-site at the customers premises.
2. Design – Design suitable timber cases with appropriate foam packing components for glass. Provide visual diagram schematic and specification documents
3. Present design and quotation to client to agree terms
4. Manufacture – Build the timer cases to the agreed specification off-site at Woodands HQ.
5. On-Site Packing – Deliver flat-packed Timber Cases with remote team and Pack on-site at the clients premises.

The Project

Below are images of the glass to be packed on-site.

ISPM15 Timber Case and Packed Glass

After the design of each case, the glass has to be securely fitted into slats on the base and shock resistant foam and cardboard inserted between each piece. The timber export packing case is also polythene lined but also lined with shock resistant foam on the base so the glass does not touch the timber base.

Batons are also fitted to the inside of the case to securely fit the glass into place so no movement in transit.
