3 Ways Your Products Can Be Damaged In Transit
When you run a business, there are many factors that you have to take into consideration. How much you can sell your products for, how many employees to hire, how to market your products, and much more. There’s one other thing that should also be considered, and that’s how you’re going to send products to your customers. For customers that live in the same city, it’s not so difficult. For those that live in a different state or country, though, some problems can arise.
What you don’t want to happen is for the products to arrive in bad condition. For that reason, it’s important to take preventative measures so that your packages don’t get damaged. In order to take preventative measures, you need to be aware of some of the threats that your packages could face.

Water can damage almost any product, ranging from technology to food. Even if a package doesn’t have direct exposure to water, it can still be affected by the humidity in the air. To prevent this from happening, there are two products that you can use: desiccant packs and moisture barrier bags. Desiccant packs and moisture barrier bags not only protect against moisture, but also against corrosion.
Unfortunately, we can’t control how others handle our products. That being said, we can be cautious by using labels. These labels will identify what the package has inside. For example, if you’re sending kitchen glasses, you can put a warning label that says “Fragile Glass.”
Technology is one of the most expensive products, as well as the most vulnerable. Not only can they get water damage and be mishandled, but they can also be affected by ESD and electrostatic fields. To protect your electronic products, you can use anti-static bags. Anti-static bags work by creating a Faraday cage effect which shields electronics from ESD and electrostatic fields.
