The main ingredient of the white candle is paraffin, which is a non-crystalline substance with no fixed melting point. Generally speaking, household or art candles will soften and deform when the temperature reaches 40 degrees Celsius, and gradually melt when they reach 70 degrees Celsius. Candles are divided into daily lighting candles (ordinary candles) and handicraft candles (special purpose candles, such as birthday candles). The value of the daily lighting candles is low, the transportation requirements are relatively not high, and the handicraft candles because of the high value, must adopt strict transportation requirements.

If the candles velas are to be exported, regardless of the climate, but not on the deck of the ship, apply to the ship company before shipment, namely for UNDER DECK loading. If it is an ordinary lighting candle, the value is not high, in the summer, want to apply to the ship company to be installed below the waterline, that is, to apply for UNDER WATERLINE loading, except in the summer, to apply for UDER DECK loading can be used.

If it is a high value handicraft candle, apply for UNDER WATERLINE loading. And to indicate the need to stay away from the heat source (AWAY FROM HEAT).

The handicraft candle with higher value had better use frozen container in the summer, because even if the ordinary container is put below the waterline, but in the dock stacking or truck transport will inevitably have a certain time of sun exposure. The frozen container temperature is set at about 10 degrees Celsius. However, the freight of frozen containers is expensive, generally twice that of ordinary dry containers, and the loading volume of frozen high containers is about 50 cubic meters (not exceeding the two red lines in the container), while ordinary high containers can hold 68 cubic meters. So the freight costs increase greatly.

When special goods are exported, the means of transportation should be reasonably arranged according to the characteristics of the goods and climate and other reasons to avoid losses.
