    How to pack large items correctly: tips and solutions

    Do you need to pack large items? In this case, an efficient and safe packaging solution is crucial. With the right materials and techniques, your goods will reach their destination undamaged, even with unusual dimensions. Read on to find out what else is important.
    Packing Large Items - Hero

    What to keep in mind when packing large items

    Packing large items efficiently is no problem at all with the right basics. This includes effective packaging technology and practical packaging. From industrial groups to online retailers to confectioners, large packaging is in great demand so that pallets and bulky goods can get safely from A to B. They should be stable, easy to handle and space-saving to store.

    At Model, we offer a range of bespoke packing and transport solutions to meet the individual requirements of your large parcels and stored goods. With our practical tips , we support you in your search for large industrial packaging, packaging material for oversized objects and reliable filling materials.

    Send large parcels cheaply by post

    Global parcel services such as FedEx or UPS can be an attractive alternative to Swiss Post when sending large parcels internationally. It's worth comparing.


    In addition, with suitable shipping packaging, you can avoid classification as bulky goods if necessary. For example, trapezoidal shipping and plan boxes , unlike shipping tubes, are not considered bulky goods. In this way, you can send posters and documents much cheaper. So check which packaging is best suited for your large packages.

    Custom Pallet Packaging

    In the world of logistics, efficient packaging and lean supply chains are essential for the success of any medium-sized company. When it comes to shipping bulky packages or storing large items, optimizing your logistics processes becomes even more important.

    We understand the challenges you face and offer tailor-made pallet packaging. For example, continuous corrugated board can also be used to pack bulky and large items without any problems – even automatically if necessary.

    When recommending suitable pallet packaging, we take into account factors such as the type of your products, warehouse layout, transport methods and storage space availability. Together, we develop packaging that not only protects large items, but also maximizes the efficiency of your packaging processes and minimizes the costs of your entire supply chain.

    Tailor-made solutions for the following key areas:

    Load Optimization & Stability

    Maximize space utilization and ensure safe transport with pallet packaging designed for optimal load distribution and minimizing the risk of damage.

    Tailor-made functions for greater efficiency

    Streamline tracking and inventory management with integrated labeling systems, barcodes, and RFID tags to reduce turnaround time and improve traceability.

    Automation & Sustainability

    Increase operational efficiencies with pallet packaging compatible with automated systems while promoting sustainability through eco-friendly materials and waste reduction.

    Protect large objects with filling material

    Large packages are more susceptible to damage due to their size and weight. However, with the right packaging design and materials, you can significantly reduce the risk of damage in transit.


    Deformation zones, strategically placed in the packaging, absorb shock and protect your items from vibration. In addition , filling materials such as foam inserts, air cushions or bubble wrap create a cushioning effect that prevents any movement and ensures the safety of your products.


    At Model, we offer a wide range of filling materials tailored to your specific needs and keep your large packages safe and intact.
