The goal of fumigation is to protect forests of destination countries from insects that may reside inside of internationally shipping timber.
After fumigation, a Fumigation Certificate, is issued as proof that packing materials and contents of the freight have been fumigated or sterilized prior the international shipment.
With every shipment we take the most utmost care to have it safely delivered at location. Unfortunately some circumstances are beyond our control. Therefore we offer insurance which covers the full value of your goods during transit.
