With Packlink, you can send and receive bottles.
All bottles, both glass and plastic, wine or oil, must be transported in compliant packaging, approved by the carriers as they require particularly resistant packaging material that allows them to be immobilised inside the box in which they will be inserted.
If the bottle should break or loose liquid inside the packaging, it could also damage other shipments that are transported by the carrier. Non-suitable packaging with bubble wrap and/or newspaper sheets are considerate inappropriate packaging by our insurance cover, and in case of damage, no claim will be accepted.
In certain cases, you will find packaging specifically created for sending bottles such as:
- Boxes with separators and anchor points
- Inner tube packaging with polyethylene
- Polystyrene tubes
Note: we remind you that food in general, including solids and liquids, wine and oil, are included in the Prohibited Items list. In the event that you decide to send these type of goods, we inform you that the insurance cover cannot intervene in case of damage or loss of the same if the goods are not transported in approved packaging (Airecopack, Ewsp, Nackpack, Rajapack, etc.).
We strongly recommend to wrap each bottle individually in a way to prevent any contact between bottles and/or contact with any other item in the shipment. For example, styrofoam can be used to separate bottles.
The common practise of shipping other types of items together with bottles is strongly discouraged. You need to be mindful that in case of damages, the rest of the articles in the package will also suffer damages or saturation.
If you need to send several bottles, the best option is to use adequate packaging. There are several companies exclusively producing specialised packaging, so we recommend to acquire a box designed to send bottles, with double wall cardboard separators and styrofoam.
