Wood Crates & Shipping Containers


Wood Crates and Shipping Containers Provide Maximum Protection for Valuable Assets

Some items are too large or too heavy for corrugated cardboard packaging and require sturdier containers. We understand that certain goods require crates, boxes, or containers made from wood for added protection during handling and shipping. There are numerous crate, box, and container styles and variations. The style of wooden crate we choose is based on the load weight, dimensions, value, and characteristics of the item to be shipped.

The structural components of a wooden shipping crate can vary based on the weight and dimensions of the load. Additionally, internal wood structures such as load-bearing members, saddles, and supports are sometimes required.

Strategic Securing of Contents

Another critical factor we 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 bolting, blocking, bracing, 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.
