Notes:

All class 1 shipments must be pre-cleared with Fracht even in the case of repeat shipments. Maximum payload dependent on regional restrictions, please phone your local Fracht office for more information. For full details, talk to your Fracht representative. Please help us to ensure your goods are delivered safely by using proper packing and bracing. Make sure that all containers are correctly sealed prior to departure and that the seal number appears on your Bill of Lading instructions. Also ensure legally required documentation accompanies the container door-to-door. (One of the most essential documents is the container packing certificate.) We follow specialised procedures when shipping hazardous cargo. For further advice, contact your local Fracht office.
