If cartons are used, please put each chemical in strong polythene bags to ensure protection from dampness.
Cases must have an inner lining of stout, water-resistant paper.
We do not object to packing in cartons, provided the flaps are glued down and the cartons secured by metal bands.
Packing in sturdy wooden cases is essential. Cases must be nailed and secured by overall metal strapping.
I would suggest you strengthen the carton with double straps.
As the goods will probably be subject to a thorough customs examination, the cases should by of a type which can be easily made fast again after opening.
To avoid pilferage, we hope that the goods will be packed in wooden cases instead of in cartons as the cartons are easier to be cut open.
We have no objection to your packing the goods in cartons if you guarantee in your sales confirmations that you will pay compensation if we fail to get indemnification from the insurance company for the reason that the goods are not packed in seaworthy wooden cases.
