The leading company in the field of corrugated cardboard is also experienced in the field of exports which now constitute 30% of production volume. Discover the challenges that Dakri Cartons overcame to become a reputable exporter to 4 different islands of the Indian ocean.
It all started 15 years ago, with a Reunion-bound order for a 40-ft container of pizza boxes. Back then, in the absence of automatic machines, the teams worked tirelessly for three weeks to complete, pack and ship the order. This experience, among others, motivated the company to invest in state-of-the art equipment.
Today, the team’s synchronicity, organisation and expertise work with the modern equipment, allowing the company to fulfil a similar order in a mere 24 hours. As such, Dakri Cartons is able to export corrugated cardboard boxes of any design, shape or dimension to Rodrigues, Seychelles, Reunion and Madagascar, with orders for various types of containers in various industries such as food and fishing.
The challenges of being export-ready
A myriad of additional factors come into play once a company ships orders overseas. From legal requirements to logistics and insurance, the company ensured, over time, to acquire all the necessary expertise to provide a full-fledged, flawless logistic experience to overseas customers.
1. Administrative formalities are fully taken care of
The team diligently fills all paperwork and documentation to avoid any unforeseen costs or fines and facilitate customs clearing.
2. The teams stay up-to-date with customs regulations
Mastering the customs laws and regulations, as well as the classification of goods and valuation, all the while adhering to export controls for Mauritius as well as the destination country is essential
3. Dakri Cartons also masters finer logistics details such as labelling for group orders
Packaging and labelling of goods is particularly important when the customer’s container also accommodates products from other suppliers as well, or customers share a container with other importers.
4. In-house logistics ensure timely and efficient transport of goods
Since January 2023, Dakri Cartons developed its own export logistics services with the acquisition of two prime movers with flatbed trailers, and side lifter, enabling them to provide a full service to the customer and to ensure efficient movement of goods and timely deliveries.
5. Expert partners ensure timely and safe shipping
If the customer does not have a preferred shipping partner, Hire Four is Dakri Carton’s logistic partner of choice. The company offers competitive prices as well as a reliable and consistent service. With agents in Seychelles and Reunion, and network of trustworthy freight forwarders in other destinations, they are also a flexible service provider.
6. Insurance protects the goods on their way
This crucial aspect of export protects against loss or damage during transportation. Dakri Cartons therefore provides their customers with the option of appropriate insurance covers by booking their order in CIF (Cost, Insurance and Freight).
Dakri Carton’s well-rounded offer is only strengthened by the close relationship with export customers, maintained by dedicated sales professionals. With their experience growing every day, coupled with the philosophy of continuous improvement, the leading packaging manufacturer is attracting a growing number of customers within the region.
