Our high quality ship store supplies and cutting edge packaging solutions have facilitated seamless movement of international shipments, making Hirji Packers & Suppliers a renowned name in the Indian packaging and shipping industry.
Over the past 53 years we have achieved several milestones and have successfully expanded our business to serve several domestic and multinational clients across different industries.
Our Business
Hirji Packers & Suppliers is a one stop shop for products and services related to palletization, packaging of export cargo and lashing & choking of over dimensional cargo.
Our experience in packaging, palletization, stuffing, lashing and choking is across different types of cargo such as steel coils and sheets, automobiles, machinery and equipment, over dimensional cargo, project cargo, sensitive chemicals, pharmaceutical products, etc. We provide our services at client’s site or various container freight stations.
We use customized packaging solutions to suit the cargo type in order to ensure cargo integrity and safety, optimal utilization of container space and complete compliance with regulatory requirements. All our packing is done as per ISPM 15 standards and all wooden material used is fumigated and heat treated as required by the destination country.
Some technologies & processes developed based on our in-house research and development, such as our stuffing technology for steel coils, has enabled us to significantly reduce the time required for stuffing each container. This has led to reduction of cost and equipment required by our clients. Majority of our clients in the steel industry have adapted this technique for loading and have transferred the same technology to destination countries for unloading as well.
