Seminar: using wood for transport packaging and pallets

Start 9 Academy 9 Wood for transport packaging and pallets
Which types of wood are really suitable for large transport packaging? Should export crates and pallets be made of special wood? These are crucial questions, because wood, a renewable packaging material, is ideal for sea transport and air freight.
The BFSV seminar shows how buyers, packaging manufacturers and forwarders can make the most of the advantages of wooden packaging and get to grips with possible disadvantages. The course provides information on the ISPM 15 standard in international goods traffic.

Acquire specific expertise here that will enable you to identify and efficiently use the right wood for export crates and crates.
