UNIPAL® dunnage offers an inexpensive solution for protecting and load-securing cargo during transportation. Lightweight UNIPAL® corrugated dunnage can also provide real cost savings wherever weight is a concern in shipping, and increase less-than-truckload (LTL) freight performance. Disposal of wood and plastic can often be a problem, especially in international shipping. In many cases, dunnage cannot be landed because of customs duties on imported timber, or quarantine rules to avoid foreign insect pests, and as a result often the unwanted dunnage is later furtively jettisoned over side and adds to the area's driftwood problem.
According to U.S. and International Law (MARPOL73/78) it is illegal for ships to dump dunnage within 25 nautical miles (46 km) of the shore. Presently, the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC), an international regulatory agency, mandates its 134 signatory countries to comply with the ISPM 15, which requires all dunnage to be heat treated or fumigated with pesticides and marked with an accredited seal. Several instances where foreign insects have entered land have caused devastation to the ecosystem, even ruining crops and causing famine in Africa. UNIPAL® dunnage offers a lightweight, safe, clean, compliant, and recyclable way to secure and protect cargo whether shipping by land, air, or sea.
