Export packaging became complicated when 15 E.U. (European Union) members, China, and, Australia started restricting wood packaging entering into their countries. It will become even more complicated since the 118 participating countries of the I.P.P.C. (International Plant Protection Committee) have no identified timeline for the implementation of their packaging restrictions.
Products shipped to these countries, that do not meet the packaging restrictions, will either be shipped back at your company’s expense, held in customs for an unspecified period of time accumulating fines and storage costs, or may be confiscated.
When you use our services for your export packaging needs, our knowledge and experience will help prevent mistakes before they happen.
