Packing Methods for shipping from China to Indonesia by air

The most crucial purpose of packaging is to maintain the product’s original characteristics and specifications in the final distance of transportation and storage and prevent possible damage to the product. There are different packing methods that, in the following, we are going to talk about them.

Basic Packing Method 

This method is suitable for fragile materials such as printed matters, machinery parts, and metal parts. In this method, a double wall box is prepared inside the box, and if one, it is necessary to check the strength of the wall based on the contents. Some other considerations are:

  • If items are affected by moisture, they must be placed into a plastic bag for extra protection.
  • Items must be placed in the center of the box, at least 6 cm separation from the walls
  • If multiple items are in one single box, they must be wrapped individually and separated from each other.

Box-in-box Method 

In the box-in-box method, a second outer box is used to offer additional protection. It is useful for the transportation of more fragile items or where the inner box will be used for retail purposes. Some other considerations are:

  • In this method, both the inner and outer boxes must be prepared. It is better to use the original packing of the products for the inner box. The inner box should be packed according to the basic packing method.
  • The outer box must be at least 14 cm in all dimension bigger than the inner box to provide extra protection. The foils should fill the space between two boxes. This way will restrict the second box to move.

Packing liquids and Powders 

Liquid and powders are categorized as dangerous goods, and it is challenging for many people to transport them from China to Indonesia. For packing this list, it is essential to pay attention to the following matters:

  • Liquids should be contained in leak-free containers and protected with strong internal material such as styrofoam. Seal in a plastic bag before putting into a strong double-wall box
  • It is better to wrap them in the grease-resistant paper for semi-liquids, greasy or strong-smelling substances before placing them into a robust double wall box.
  • It is suggested for powders and fine grains to place them in strong plastic bags, securely sealed, and then packed in a rigid fiberboard box.

Dangerous goods by air cargo

There is some limitation on air freight. Dangerous goods are items and materials that endanger the health of the aircraft. Carrying such things must be based on the guidelines of the “International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)” and the “Association of Airlines (IATA).”

What is the customs declaration?

Customs declaration is required for customs clearance. Customs declaration, in the process of clearance of goods, is a legal obligation to show the declarant’s responsibility to enter or leave goods.

A customs declaration is to announce the imported and exported goods formally to customs. In customs clearance, the owner of the goods first declares his/her goods, which means that the customs do not know what the consignment and package of the owner of the goods are? In the first stage, the owner of the goods wants to introduce it.

The customs will review the declarations. If there is no problem in the declarations and the number, nature, and value of the goods are under the declaration, the goods clearance becomes possible. According to regulations, the acceptance of goods in warehouses and customs places and clearance of goods is possible when the customs declaration has been submitted to the customs.

The customs declaration is prepared by the owner of the goods or his representative or customs broker. The owner of the goods can prepare the customs declaration in person or through his legal representative. On the other hand, the customs administration has allowed the customs broker to clear the goods on behalf of third parties.

The owner of the goods or his/her representative or customs broker must prepare the customs declaration in two copies with the date and signature attached to the purchase list (Invoice), certificate of origin, bank documents, pre-invoice, billing list, and other permits to be delivered to the customs office.

Finally, if the receipt is approved with the system’s amount, the cashier will confirm the customs license, and the clearance and payment permit will be issued. If an imported or exported consignment is declared somewhere and the declarations do not match the consignment contents, the customs will impose a fine according to the difference between the declaration and the consignment. In cases where the declarant of goods generally uses other tariffs to pay fewer duties, he/she will face hefty fines.
