We Ensure Your Items are Protected and Secure

Expertly built wooden crates protect your valuable assets during shipping and storage.  However, no two items have the same specifications, which requires your crating company to have the unique skills, industry knowledge, and the right team of professionals capable of crating and protecting your most valued items.  Craters & Freighters has decades of experience, in-house engineers, and proprietary software capable of crating, packing, and logistics to ensure your assets arrive safely at the desired destination.

Precise Crating Techniques

Crating involves much more than simply placing an item in a wooden crate. Our specialists will design a crate that meticulously matches the asset’s needs custom to the mode of transportation. Using spec-driven software like Solidworks®, our engineers can perfectly determine the size of the container necessary to ensure your item’s safety through transit.

Once the specs and container are provided, the item is expertly positioned within the box or crate, and then packaged, blocked, and braced to ensure it is secured throughout its journey and arrives undamaged. This proven approach has enabled us to deliver countless shipments thoughtfully and securely to happy customers all over the world.
Customers can trust Craters & Freighters with any kind of item, whether it’s fragile, sensitive, oversized, heavy, or one-of-a-kind. From antique furniture and collectibles to industrial machinery and medical equipment, we know how to engineer effective crates and packaging for a successful shipment by air, land, or sea.

You can be confident that your valuables are properly prepared for their journey when you partner with Craters & Freighters.
