General information on shipping bottles - what to bear in mind

Glassware is particularly sensitive during transport. Inadequate packaging encourages damage. Therefore, we work according to a set of internally set standards to pack bottles and ship them safely:

  • For the goods shipment, we check whether the bottles are compatible with the selected cartons. Due to our experience in this area, we are able to advise you in detail here.
  • If necessary, we use tried and tested filling material to ensure safety during transport.
  • Empty compartments are filled with the appropriate filling material (for example, to pack 5 bottles in a 6-bottle box for wine).
  • Only the permitted number of bottles is put into the packaging and it is not filled with other items.
  • Whether wine packaging or beer bottle packaging, the cartons are securely taped with the appropriate adhesive tape.
  • If required, additional warning labels draw attention to the fragile contents.

Wine packaging and co. - Packing bottles for safe shipping

Bottle shipping plays a central role in many industries. Above all, wine and spirits shipping should be mentioned here. In all sectors, the focus is on shipping cylindrical or round goods. We offer special bottle cartons for wine shipping and many other sectors. Thanks to shock-resistant special packaging, sensitive goods are transported safely.

The bottle shipping boxes are always tailored to the individual shape of the goods. A bulbous wine bottle requires different packaging than a large, narrow oil bottle. In addition, the cartons often have a folded insert to reduce the space between the bottles. This prevents strong movement of the goods and possible breakage during transport. The folded insert also stabilises the entire carton. Ideal for safely surviving even turbulent shipping routes - because impacts are optimally cushioned.

Depending on the type of bottle packaging, the bottles are transported in it standing up or lying down. There is also individual packaging for bottles. These rely on a stable outer wall and, if required, additional bubble wrap or air cushions.

Secure bottle packaging with bubble wrap 

Bottles for wine and spirits are made of fragile glass - this increases the risk of bottles breaking when they are transported individually. Here, packaging with bubble wrap offers an optimal solution. If you pack a champagne bottle individually, for example, this film provides additional protection against transport damage. But cartons such as beer bottle packaging can also be additionally protected with the film.

If the bottles are already packed - for example a whiskey bottle in a square box - bubble cushions are the better choice. They fill the space in the box and prevent the bottle from moving around in the packaging. Ideally, you should opt for a sturdy shipping package that does not give the goods any room to move. In this case, additional air cushions are not necessary in any form.

Individual bottle packaging

High-quality special packaging with printing is a successful marketing tool that increases your recognition value. We are also happy to advise you on individually printed bottle packaging to personally round off the shopping experience for your customers. We will be happy to advise you on customised packaging for shipping bottles.
