Freight packaging is one of the most important parts of your freight shipping experience. Bad packaging can introduce you to damaged freight, expensive and time-consuming claim processes, and additional reclass fees. Conversely, using correct freight packaging practices can protect you from these things. If you’re going to get the most out of your LTL, truckload, or small package shipping, it’s important to nail the packaging part. At the end of the day, freight packaging can be just as important as getting the best shipping quote, or selecting the correct freight class.
Here at FreightPros, we don’t dip our toes in the ocean too often. That means that we focus on the freight shipping quote before the cargo/container quote, but it also means we keep our ears to the grindstone of the shipping world; global, ocean, or otherwise. Ship Technology Global Magazine is a digital magazine that keeps you up-to-date with all the comings and goings in the shipping, cargo, and cruise industries. Though we might not be directly involved with ocean freight or commerce, we’re very interested in finding and promoting the best publications in the freight industry, and Ship Technology Global Magazine is one of these publications. In an industry that’s limited when it comes to original, influential freight content, it’s nice to find publications that offer insights into transportation and logistics in an interesting, fun way. You can check out the most recent issue right here! Apart from being free (which is great), this digital magazine will actually be fun to read. In the shipping industry, it’s tough to come across material that isn’t dry to the bone, boring, and instructional (in the worst way). If you’re a reader of our own shipping blog, you know how it important it is for us at FreightPros to both excel in shipping freight, but also to get the most out of the places we live and the things that we do. That’s why we have guest blogs covering pet friendly places in Austin, and the difference between Uber vs Lyft. If you’re looking for a quick way to get up to do date on some happenings in the shipping industry, check out Ship Technology Global Magazine. It’s good writing; with a shipping spin.
