Heat Insulation Inside Of Containers
In winter time during transportation of cargoes in containers, which are sensitive to ambient temperature (for example, fruits and vegetables, liquids and so on), it is recommended to install heat insulation inside of the container in order to maintain stable temperature inside and escape spoilage of Goods. During installation of heat insulation inside of the container, environmentally friendly materials are used only.
Types of heat insulation:
- Single layer of heat insulation. Foam plastic, gluing, installation foam, foamed sealant and liquid nails are used as single layer of heat insulation more often. It is possible to install heat insulation which made of special insulating material and veneer.
- Double layer of heat insulation. Two layers of foam plastic with gluing are used for this purpose. Layers of foam plastic are put overlapping for creating additional heat, special film is put between two layers of foam plastic. Double heat insulation normalizes temperature inside of the container better and protects the cargo from sharp temperature difference.
Choice of type depends on Goods and season of transportation. We can install heat insulation inside of the container in order to maintain necessary temperature conditions and preserve the quality of Goods during transportation. We also can install heat insulation for individual cargo package. The necessity of installation heat insulation and type of it should be indicated in your order, which you place with us for transportation, also you should consult with managers who are in charge of delivery.

Usually represented by a shattered stemmed glass, the fragile icon is one of the most familiar shipping symbols. It is used to indicate that the product inside the package is fragile and can be easily damaged and, thus, needs to be handled with utmost care.
The thermometer symbol indicates that the item inside the box is temperature sensitive. The mark usually indicates the temperature at which the product should be stored. This symbol is generally found on packages that contain perishable items such as food and medicines.
Right Side Up
Commonly represented by two arrows pointing up, this sign defines which side of the package should face upward, so that the product inside is in the upright position during transit and handling thereby preventing damage.

The umbrella symbol denotes that the package contain items that must not be exposed to water or moisture. This sign is usually found on packages containing electronic devices, clothing and goods that corrode easily.
