Sounds of Shipping from Houston Shipping Co

Posted on Mon, Aug 05, 2013

I believe this is a mother and her calf.

While the shipping industry is flourishing world wide,  a grad student in Canada has confirmed what the was first discussed in 2008 at the Intercessional Meeting of the IMO Working Group on Greenhouse Gas Emissions. 

Besides greenhouse gas emissions, oil pollution and carbon dioxide emission, sound produced by ships also has a negative effect on the environment and is considered a form of pollution.

Why you ask is a company that prepares goods for shipping interested in the environment?  From the beginning shipping companies like pack n send in Houston have joined in recycling efforts and are concerned about the environment. 


We have watched as ships wait at ports until they are full to sail with their cargo.  Fewer ships sailing use less fuel and dispose of fewer waste products.  While it is not possible to sail with a full cargo load all of the time, the industry has gotten better about trying to fill ships completely with cargo before they sail.

The noise pollution aspect of shipping that Nathan Merchant mentions in his studies, is one of the often forgotten about sources of pollution in the shipping industry. The Handy  Shipping Guide article  goes into a full analysis of Mr. Merchant’s analysis.

When Mr. Merchant put equipment that records sound two km down on the sea floor, he explored noise pollution and how it affects dolphins whales, and other marine mammals. Since marine mammals communicate with the use of sound, there is an expectation that they now are changing their methods of communication.

Of course the sounds emanating from ships are not entirely attributable to cargo ships. Cruise ships and pleasure boats have also effect sound pollution.

While the effects of sound pollution are being studied, it looks as if it will be quite a few years down the road before satisfactory methods of controlling the sounds will be put into place.

Computer Shipping - Houston Company Answers Questions

Posted on Fri, Jun 22, 2012

 Pack n send is addressing computer shipping separately from electronics shipping in this blog.  Customers call us with questions frequently about how to pack computers.

When looking for a company that can pack and  ship your computers ,make sure that they offer  shipping options.  They should be able to ship boxes, pallets, truckloads or containers of electronics.

Be sure to ask questions about packing. Does the company you choose have experience packing and shipping high value computers.

The computers should be packed as follows:

 Individual computers should be  prepared for shipping using antistatic plastic or bubble wrap. Once the computer is wrapped, it should put into a double wall box with a minimum of 3" of Styrofoam peanuts or solid Styrofoam pieces protecting the electronics equipment.

Large quantities of computers should be boxed and then placed on pallets framed with 1x4’s, Styrofoam and thick cardboard.  Protective wrap should  then put  around the entire pallet.  

Ask if the company you choose to use offers onsite packing, crating and shipping.

As an alternative, ask if the company has the capability to pick up your computers.

Does the company you choose offer full value coverage in case of loss or damage during the pick up, packing and shipping process?

There are other areas that need to be addressed when shipping high value computers.

For more information about shipping electronics, please fell free to contact pack n send at  713 266 1450.
