UPS offers a four-step guide to prepare packages for shipping. These instructions include shipping advice on packaging materials and proper labeling that can help items arrive safely and on time. And when you are ready to ship, UPS Internet Shipping guides you through the required address fields. Packaging solutions made easy. That's logistics.
First, always, always use a new box to reduce the chance of damage.
Next, whether it's with bubble wrap, airbags, or those little foam "peanuts," protect the contents with at least 2 inches of cushioning.
Secure the container with the proper packaging materials. Use a pressure sensitive plastic or nylon reinforced filament tape that's at least two inches wide.
Lastly, label it. When you ship online at ups.com, UPS Internet Shipping guides you through the required address fields. Print the label, place it on the box and you're good to go.
