Ways of Packing:
Indian Stone Slabs or Indian Stone Tiles – always packed & loaded in 20 ft. heavy duty Dry Box Container/Dry Open Top Container
The Container Packing Process starts first with sending the Stone Slabs/Stone Tiles photos through email. This way, customer has an opportunity to see the actual Indian Stone Photos before they leave our Stone Factory. After getting the approval our packing staff start their job of packing the stone slabs/stone tiles or other stone products as per the International norms meant for packaging the Stones. We take care of everything from stone packing to stone shipping. No matter what the order is…. We have the rock-solid experience to pack it perfectly.

Marble Blocks / Granite Blocks / Sandstone Blocks / Quartzite Blocks are always kept safely inside the container on strong & suitable wooden bars with the help of fork lifts and we always do wire rope lashing to avoid movement of marble stone blocks inside container. In one container we usually load around 9-10 cubic meters (Around 26-27 Metric Tons).

Our wooden bundles are always made of best quality wood and strongly fastened in the container. Slabs in the bundles are tightly compressed to each other with thin plastic sheet between each slab to avoid friction during the transit. Every pallet will have a LABEL with all the required stone & quantity details.

We pack our Indian Stone Tiles directly in ISPM-15 standard fumigated wooden crates, we put 8 / 4 mm thick foam sheet inside the wooden crate. We also put soft paper between the 2 tiles to avoid friction during the transit. A polythene sheet is used as a cover on each wooden crate and then tightened with iron / plastic strip. Inside the container the wooden crates are tightly fastened with each other so that the crates do not move during transit. Stone Tiles container are always loaded with the help of fork lift.

This way of container packing we generally do for our clients based in Morocco, Vietnam, Egypt, Iraq and various other Middle East and North African countries. We don't recommend this way, but we can do it, upon client’s request. This way of container packing is advantageous because more quantity (up to 460 sqm.) can be loaded in the container which ultimately saves lot of money in Ocean Transport and the Stone Price gets cheaper.
