Craters & Freighters has introduced Craters & Freighters Platinum, designed to give the commercial, industrial and manufacturing customer expert solutions for their complex nationwide crating, packaging and shipping logistical needs.

For national businesses that have a critical need to protect and ship valuables from multiple locations, Craters & Freighters Platinum provides peace of mind by providing innovative, highest quality protective packaging, crating, and shipping solutions. The service arm delivers simplified solutions with an expert central point of contact along with detailed project management.

The new program will enable national customers to effectively pack and ship any item that many shipping companies would decline to handle.

“A single phone call to Craters & Freighters Platinum can solve even the most challenging shipping problems,” said Diane Gibson, president and CEO of Craters & Freighters. “Whether it’s a one-of-a-kind item or an entire manufacturing facility, whether it’s going to New York or New Delhi, we have the experience and expertise to get it there on time, on budget and in pristine condition.”

“Craters & Freighters has always had the ability to safely and effectively protect and ship our clients’ valuables using our nationwide network of trained expert brick & mortar locations with experience and a proven track record. Platinum adds value to our service model by simplifying the logistics and managing every detail under one roof,” says Matt Schmitz, COO of Craters & Freighters.


Craters & Freighters was founded in 1990 to meet the needs of businesses and consumers for specialty freight handling, including pickup, crating, shipping, packaging, tracking, insuring, and delivery of shipments that are too heavy, over-sized, valuable, awkward, and time-sensitive for other shipping agencies. The company serves consumers and businesses in all sectors including telecommunications, electronics, medical equipment, aerospace, biotechnology, and heavy machinery. With “Expertise that Delivers,” the company dominates the specialty freight industry.

As a women-owned business, Craters & Freighters Platinum intends to apply for, and anticipates receiving, Minority and Women Owned Business Certification by the end of the year. Gibson is a successful businesswoman who entered the male-dominated shipping industry in 1990 when she founded Craters & Freighters, the first specialty freight handling company.
