Wood Crates & Shipping Containers
EXCEPTIONALLY STRONG SUPPORT FOR HEAVY LOADS
Wood Crates and Shipping Containers in Chicago
Some oversized or heavy items can’t be adequately protected by corrugated cardboard packaging and need sturdier containers. Certain goods must be shipped in crates, boxes, or containers made from wood.
The style we choose is based on the needs of the item being shipped. This includes load weight, dimensions, value, and other characteristics. Plus, we provide internal wood structures like load-bearing members, saddles, and supports as needed.
Thinking Inside the Box
Another factor we address is how to secure the item within the crate or box, or onto a skid or pallet. Bolting, blocking, bracing, and steel strapping are just some of the options. When items are shipped in a wooden shipping container, we select the appropriate securing methods and incorporate into the design right from the start.
