Cost-effective Solutions In Accordance With All Required Specifications

To ensure ultimate packaging protection, we match goods with the precise bags, wraps and boxing materials. It does not matter if the product requires protection from moisture, corrosion, mold, static electricity, aromas, oxygen or even ultraviolet (UV) rays, our engineers will design a reliable, cost-efficient packaging method. 

The requirements for packaging and preservation originate in bid-packages and contracts either explicitly or indirectly via DFARs clauses. Failure to comply with packaging and preservation requirements can be costly and negatively impact future contracting opportunities.

Missed Packaging and Preservation compliance will lead to the shipment being rejected at the destination and suspended payment. In that case the contractor’s quality score suffers and the shipment may be returned. Sometimes the contractor will need to reimburse the government for the materials and effort to repackage the goods.
