How K/D Structure in Artificial Trees Reduces Shipping Costs ? In recent months, global shipping has continued to struggle due to Red Sea attacks. Many freight companies had to reroute ships south to sail around the Cape of Good Hope, and it took another two weeks and added costs.

The whole craft is like making a plug. Nearly the joint there are arrow or numbers indication to tell you which direction you should insert, it’s easily to combine them by yourself.
The advantage of the Knock down structure
- Smaller packaging means no worries about breaking off.
The length and width can be smaller, so the package size can be smaller. Some artificial trees have a height greater than 210cm; without a K/D structure, the carton size is over 210cm; it’s easily broken off if not properly moved by two workers. With K/D structures, the packing size can be 150cm or even smaller.
