Make sure the package is sealed and has no dents or tears.

Before the transfer of cargo you need to seal the package. It would be better, if it is done with company’s duct tape. If you are using a simple tape, you could label the top of it and sign on it. Packages transferred to the forwarder, with access to inside content, carries the risk of accidental or deliberate loss of contents. Dents or tears on the package will necessarily be fixed by the transport company in the issued packing list or the act. Therefore, in the case of damage, it may be difficult to substantiate your claim, as the shipment is taken and delivered by the forwarder in the same packaging.
