Sending fragile goods can feel complicated, time consuming and not least expensive. Below we describe what you need to keep in mind when sending fragile goods by regular freight transport. Within Sweden and the world.

Should I use stickers for fragile goods?
Regardless of whether your goods are to be transported within Sweden or abroad, more than 50% of the package's travel takes place without a person being involved. This is to increase efficiency and keep costs down. Packages sorted entirely by machines on conveyor belts. We recommend you to use stickers for fragile goods for the part that is handled manually. However, it remains the sender's responsibility to pack enough.

How should I pack my fragile goods?
Of course, it depends on how sensitive it is, but as a rule, the goods should not hit the outer edges of the box. Content should not clash either. The carton should be able to be stacked in a cage with other goods and handle its own weight from above.

Our best tips to avoid injuries
