Facts and analysis validate that with so much cargo in transit, airlines are more often to neglect required handling for special shipments.

What are Dangerous Goods?

What is ISPM 15 and why is it required?
ISPM 15 is the acronym for International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures # 15. It was created by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC), a part of the United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization. It requires to have all wood packaging made of softwood or hardwood to be treated and carry a special mark to certify it as such.
Untreated lumber poses a risk of carrying harmful plants pests.
What happens when wood packaging does not comply and shipped anyway?
Regulations vary in every country. Some countries will fumigate the package including the content and pass on all charges to shipper. Some will deny the shipment and return to origin and bill shipper for it. And so on.
All our crates are custom made with grade A Heat Treated ISPM 15 wood. Crates are stamped, marked and labeled appropriately along with all required documents.
