While dunnage isn’t a typical vocabulary word used in the average conversation, it is a common term for most shippers. Used to describe the packaging materials that keep goods in place during shipping like bubble wrap, kraft paper, crinkle paper, plastic bracing, fillers, planks, blocks, and boards, dunnage is any material used to help secure and support packages throughout the shipping and handling process. In Heavy Hauling, dunnage will be made from sturdier materials, such as wood, heavy-duty plastic, or metal.
