Wood Crates & Shipping Containers


Wood Crates & Shipping Containers

Many items are too large and heavy for corrugated cardboard packaging and require sturdier containers for their safety. Certain goods require wooden crates, boxes, or containers for added protection and durability during handling and shipping. Craters & Freighters offers a variety of crate designs specific to your needs and variations to support numerous kinds of items. 

Several elements are taken into consideration when choosing the style of wood crate; some include dimensions, weight, value, and characteristics of the item to be shipped and how the item will be shipped; air, ground, or ocean.

Once weight and dimensions are established, the structural components of your container can be properly determined. In some cases, your shipment will require internal wood structures such as load-bearing members, saddles, and supports. 

Working with a knowledgeable wood crating team will enhance your shipping experience and provide a responsible and successful shipment.

Strategic Inner Packaging Methods

Another critical factor to consider is the securing of the item within the crate or box, or onto a skid or pallet. There are several methods for accomplishing this task, including blocking, bracing, bolting, and steel strapping. When items are shipped in a wooden shipping container, our packaging professionals determine the necessary securing methods and incorporate them into the initial design.
