John Nugent, owner of Shipping Etc., today announced the company's certification by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) for the local construction and export of shipping crates. This certification means that shipping crates built by Shipping Etc. will be allowed to enter more than 138 IPPC participant countries which restrict wooden packaging to prevent the import of potentially devastating bugs and organisms into those countries.
“This certification demonstrates Shipping Etc’s commitment to provide turnkey crating, packaging and shipping service with worldwide coverage” said John Nugent, owner of Shipping Etc. “Previously, items exporting to countries that required IPPC-certified crating were sent to Houston for packaging. Now Shipping Etc can offer the service right here in Lafayette which saves our customers time, reduces transportation costs and allows customers to maintain better control of the whole process.”
Shipping Etc. is the largest packaging, crating and shipping center in the Acadiana area. The company ships to more than 220 countries worldwide, and is the only independently owned UPS-authorized shipping center in Lafayette.
