Instead of the conventional packing of garments in flat-boxes (of corrugated cardboard) the garments are supplied by the manufacturer on hangers and covered by a polythene bag. These garments on hangers are then loaded into both Sea-containers (which can accommodate 12000/20000 pcs) as well as in Aircraft-containers (which can carry up to 4000 pcs).

Both types of containers are fitted with metal bars which run along the length of the containers from which nylon ropes are hung. The ropes are "knotted" approximately 6" to 10" apart and four to six hangers are normally suspended from these knots.


The various advantages of GOH are as under :

  • The containers can be moved directly into the Buyer's warehouse without intermediate handling
  • Cost saving in eliminating card board packs and further wrapping
