We at Ozone Services
feel that packing our products for transport is one of the most important
jobs in our whole operation.
We also believe that
the way the product is packed by the supplier for transport tells a
lot about the care given to all aspects of product design, manufacturing,
testing as well as customer support and service.
from mail-order companies, catalogs and on the Internet is becoming
routine, and we all complain about the cost of shipping, which seems
almost always too high. Therefore, it is no surprise that most of our
clients feel the same way about our S&H charges. However, all clients
who have visited our facility, and who have had an opportunity to see
all steps involved in the process of packing for transport products
they purchased, agree - "I will never complain about your S&H

packaging material all around the product!
- The bottom of
the box is always carefully glued first....and "bottom layer" of
protective cushioning is prepared. We mostly use loose fill (chips),
but sometimes we also use Insta-Pack foam system.....
- Products are placed
into the box, "buried" by chips, and if required, packing
chips or Insta-Pack foam is used also as cushioning between individual

sale & packing slips are placed on the top layer of protective
- Boxes are closed
and glued ....

- ...and strapped
(if larger than 16x10x10")
- ...and labeled
- ...and shipped.
Some boxes contain
one item only, and some orders consist of up to 30-35 different items/products,
reaching the total weight of 150Lbs. However, outlined process is almost
always the same, and in year 2002 alone it was repeated over 1450 times....
