Packaging Your Goods for Truck Transport

Titan Translines is a large North American carrier trucking company ; as such, we take great care to safeguard your goods. Although we do not specialize in shipping of fragile freight, some items that we do ship are more prone to damage than others. We use the right equipment to load and unload cargo. Our drivers are trained in the safe handling of pshipping fragile itemsackaging. Although goods will experience some jostling during transportation, safe driving habits will prevent extreme movement.

However, with the transfer of cargo from place to place, there is always the risk of breakage with goods that are not properly packaged. It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that their goods are appropriately packaged for transport. Here are some things to consider:

  • We recommend ‘over-packing’ if possible, as it is definitely better to be safe than sorry.
  • Take into account how long your freight will be in transit.
  • Parcels that will go through dramatic temperature or humidity conditions in transit will need extra care.
  • Shrink wrapped goods, secured to a pallet will be more stable than individual cartons.
  • Include a vapour barrier, insulation, and/or bubble wrap as needed.
  • Attach “Fragile” or “This End Up” labels if necessary.

We want your items to arrive safely in mint condition. If they are damaged due to improper packaging, your goods will be devalued or even worthless. If you do your part to ensure their safety, we guarantee to do ours.

Titan has numerous options for the shipping of your goods. We will be happy to discuss your needs and provide you with the best, fastest, and most cost-effective solutions for your shipping needs.
