Which packaging is suitable for sending a drinks package?

This step-by-step guide explains which packaging is suitable for sending a drinks package. The goal is to help you choose the right packaging to ensure that the package arrives safely to the recipient.


Choose the right box

Select a sturdy box that is large enough to properly contain all the items in the drinks package. Make sure the box is not too roomy to prevent the items from sliding around during transport. Here are a few steps to choose the right box:

  • Measure the dimensions of the items in the drinks package, such as bottles of wine, bags of nuts and pieces of cheese.
  • Choose a box that can accommodate all the items without being too tight or too roomy.
  • Check that the box is made of sturdy cardboard to provide adequate protection for the contents.
  • Don't forget to add padding material such as bubble wrap or padding granules to limit movement of the items.
  • Seal the box tightly with tape to ensure everything stays in place during transport.

As an example, if the bottles of wine are 30 cm long and the cheese and nuts require a total space of 20 x 20 cm, choose a box that measures at least 35 x 25 x 25 cm for sufficient space.


Protective materials

Use padding material such as bubble wrap or paper to protect the items in the drinks package from bumps and shocks during shipping. Make sure the items are packed securely in the padding material so that they cannot move within the packaging. Fill any empty spaces with additional padding material to ensure items stay in place and are well protected during transit. Also check that all fragile items are extra well packed and padded so that they arrive safely at their destination. Don't forget to seal and label the package properly before shipping.


Suitable packaging materials

Choose food-safe packaging materials. Check whether the materials you use are suitable for contact with food and meet food safety standards. For example, choose plastic bags and films that are resealable and that prevent perishable items from being exposed to the air. Sealable plastic bags are perfect for packaging foods such as cheese, meats or dips. Make sure the packaging is tight and airtight to maintain the freshness of the products. Pay attention to the expiration dates and store the drink packages at the correct temperature to prevent spoilage.



Make sure the box is clearly labeled with the correct shipping information. Write the recipient's name and address clearly and legibly on the box. Also add your own sender details to avoid any problems with delivery. Please include the desired delivery date and any specific instructions the recipient needs to know, such as “Fragile” or “Open Immediately”. This way, your drinks package will arrive at the right destination safely and on time.



Choose a reliable shipping method and make sure the drinks package is properly packed before sending it. For example, choose a reliable courier service if you want to send the package. Check whether the shipping method is suitable for fragile items, such as a drinks package. Wrap the package tightly with bubble wrap or other protective material to ensure that the items are not damaged during transportation. Please take the delivery date into account to ensure that the package arrives on time. Plan the sending of the drinks package so that it reaches the recipient on the desired date. Check with the chosen shipping service about their delivery schedule and choose a shipping option that suits your desired delivery date. This way you can be sure that the drinks package will be delivered on time and in good condition.



Regularly check the status of the shipment by logging into the carrier's tracking website. As soon as the drinks package has been delivered, inform the recipient immediately. Then ask for feedback on the condition the package arrived in so you can quickly resolve any issues.

Example: Log in to the carrier to check the delivery status. If you see that the drinks package has been delivered, send a message to the recipient to confirm this. Then kindly ask if everything has arrived in good condition and if they are satisfied with the package. This shows that you are involved in the delivery and helps to increase customer satisfaction.
