Packaging Materials for the Chemicals Industry

Our chemical packaging solutions

Chemical packaging is the drums, jerry cans, buckets or IBCs used to carry chemical products.

At MorsaPack, our packaging products are the secondary, or ancillary, products to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of your primary packaging for chemical handling. These ensure drums and other chemical packaging are kept secure and stable.

Ensuring load stability for chemicals transportation

Safely transporting chemicals requires robust procedures to ensure load stability. Correct pallet stability – through the proper configuration, wrapping and loading of pallets – is essential to reduce the risk of potentially hazardous products being damaged or dislodged during transit. 

  • Testing pallets to ensure correct tolerances for loads 
  • Advising on the correct loading and wrapping of goods 
  • Preventing physical, health or environmental hazards 
  • Supporting you to share all information with your supply chain 
  • Working to internationally agreed standards – EUMOS 40509

How we work with the chemical industry

We support chemicals manufacturers, chemicals businesses, and businesses working with hazardous chemicals to securely ship their products. Whether you’re dealing with liquids, gases or pellets, we’ll develop solutions suited to your chemicals. 

Understanding the flow rate of the chemicals being transported, we’ll advise on the products and methods for packaging products.  

We’ll visit you to get a full understanding of your products, shipment methods – including the transportation to be used and areas to be covered – and facilities, to deliver a bespoke solution. Our services include load testing, supply of packaging and machinery (as required), and certification of loads. 

We’ll also advise on how to communicate all relevant safety information with your supply chain, ensuring all involved in the movement of goods are aware of their responsibilities, the risks involved and practices to ensure safe shipments.

Why MorsaPack for chemical packaging?

Testing load stability
Using EUMOS testing protocols we will test your pallet stability and make recommendations on how to ensure stability during transit, through the correct packaging, loading and securing of pallets. Your pallets will then be certified, confirming they adhere to EUMOS protocols.

Advising on packaging products and processes
We’ll recommend the appropriate packaging products to wrap and secure your loads – supply the right materials whether chemicals are transported using metal drums, plastic buckets, bags or lined boxes. The wrapping configuration for pallets is central to guaranteeing load stability.

Communicating to your supply chain
Having developed a correct, safe protocol for your chemicals shipments, we’ll then support you to share this information with everyone in your supply chain – ensuring understanding of responsibilities and the risks of not complying with guidance. We’ll focus on the importance of correctly loading goods, supplying guidance for all involved – from warehouse operatives responsible for loading, drivers responsible for loading and securing, and freight companies responsible for transportation.

The European Safe Logistics Association (EUMOS)
As members of EUMOS you can be assured we work to the highest safety standards.

What is EUMOS 40509?
This standard sets a protocol for testing, loading and securing palletised goods, to ensure the rigidity and safety of a load during transportation.
