by:VIPUTRANS     2020-09-04
The main function of the mark of the transportation package is to identify the goods during the storage and transportation process, and to operate rationally. According to its purpose, it can be divided into a shipping mark (Shipping Mark), an indicative mark (Indicative Mark), a warning mark (Warning Mark), weight Signs and origin signs.

The transportation mark, also known as the mark, is an identification mark. According to the recommendations of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), it includes four items;

(l) The English abbreviation or abbreviation of the name of the consignee;

(2) Reference number, such as order, invoice or waybill number;

(3) Destination;

(4) Part number - For example:


Consignee name


Contract number




Part number (sequence number and total number of pieces)

Transport signs also play a special role in international trade. According to the 'Convention', the risk will not be transferred to the buyer before the product is specified. The most common and effective way of product specificization is to mark the shipping mark on the outer packaging of the product. In addition, international trade mainly adopts the method of payment by voucher, and the main export documents such as invoices, bills of lading, and insurance policies must display transportation signs. When goods are transported in a container, the transport mark can be replaced by the container number and seal number.

Indicative signs. It is a kind of operation attention sign, expressed in graphics and text. Such as handling with care, lifting from this, prohibiting rolling, etc.

Warning signs. Also known as the dangerous goods mark, it is used to indicate that the goods are dangerous goods such as flammable, explosive, toxic, corrosive or radioactive. Expressed in graphics and text. For the packaging, storage and transportation of dangerous goods, governments of various countries have formulated special regulations, which should be strictly followed.

Weight volume sign. The volume and gross weight of the package are usually marked on the outside of the transportation package to facilitate the arrangement of loading and unloading operations and space during storage and transportation.

The mark of place of origin and the place of origin of goods are important basis for customs statistics and taxation, and are stated by the certificate of origin. However, the origin is generally indicated on the inner and outer packaging as an important part of the product description.
