Why Fumigation is necessary?

Transporting goods in ships and aircrafts between countries using containers is an economic and well established practice.

Timber insects pose a significant Quarantine risk in all countries and accordingly all wooden packing material used in the export packing should be fumigated. By carrying out fumigation at the port of loading clearance of the container at the discharge port can be done without any infestation problem.
