As a Shipper, you enclose your goods in protective packaging that prevents damage or loss.
That packaging material is usually disposed of at the destination. However, certain packaging materials can be ‘transporters´ on their own. Carriers of microbes, insects, or their eggs, oftentimes invisible to the human eye.
The disposal of such packaging material may cause the spread of disease or of invasive insects that could negatively affect plants or ecosystems.
As a responsible airline group, Air France KLM Martinair Cargo is selective in its application of wooden shoring materials. But as packaging is an activity performed by you, our customer, we want to stimulate your awareness and compliance as well.
