Reusable & Trade Show Crates


Custom-Built, Reusable Trade Show Crates and Containers

Craters & Freighters designs custom reusable trade show crates for shipping assets that must be transported repeatedly. To determine the design of the optimal crate, we consider various factors about your upcoming exhibit or show.

Our packing teams then design interior packaging to protect the item inside the container during transportation. We have several protecting foams that ensure secure cushioning and protection.

Our crating team will then design a custom wood crate or container that will keep your items safe and withstand the rigors of repeated handling and shipping. 

To quickly and easily open the crate, we provide hardware like hinges and link locks that require no tools but offer a secure way to close each crate. We can also apply the necessary labels, markings and also add your company’s logo to the crate.

The Right Crate for Repeated Use

Does your company attend multiple trade shows throughout the year? A container custom-designed and optimized for repeat usage will save time, money, and stress while traveling from show to show. By knowing your company’s equipment will arrive safe and in working order,  you can focus on other matters.
