Packaging your Parcel

It’s a long journey for your parcels on their way to Kenya, and during the process of shipping they will be handled multiple times by human and machine alike. To make sure that your shipment finishes its long journey in just as good a condition as it left in, properly packaging your goods is absolutely vital.

If you want your goods to arrive safely, there are three important parts of the packaging process that you need to keep in mind:


Use a new box, which has room not just for the items you’re shipping, but the packaging you need to keep it safe. Used boxes may seem sturdy but are liable to burst or be crushed in transit. If the contents weigh more than 10kg use a double-lined box.

Safely packaging a parcel for international shipping


Wrap your items, then add another layer of packaging around them, so that they are unable to move around in the box and are at least 6cm from the sides. A quick shake should show if your goods are secure.


Wrap three times around with robust parcel tape in a Union Jack flag pattern, such that all corners and joins are covered. Make sure your shipping label is the only one on your box and is attached in a way that it will not fall off in transit.
