Packaging your shipment

From drop-off to delivery, we make sure your parcel is well looked after – but we need your help!

Packaging can make all the difference especially when you are looking to give your brand an exclusive image and personality. On its journey, your parcel will be joined by thousands of others, passing across various machinery and may have other items stacked on top of it. To make sure your package arrives safe and sound, check out our handy hints and tips.

The Tape makes a difference
