Custom Crating


Designing the Optimal Custom Crating Container for Your Shipping Needs

Craters & Freighters engineers create custom crating solutions for the item being shipped. We take pride in engineering and building the best crate options possible to ensure your items arrive safe and damage-free.

Our engineering services draw from many resources including an extensive MIL-Spec library, AutoCAD, and crating and cushioning software. We also leverage our nearly 30 years of experience in custom crating everything from fine art to priceless antiques, highly sensitive medical devices to massive aerospace parts.

Specializing in Optimal Cushioning Systems

Because different styles of boxes and crates have different load capacities, determining the best container to match your item is critical. However, accounting for shock and vibration for many items can be just as important, which is why we are specialists at developing and using the proper cushioning materials based on item weight, fragility, and vibration sensitivity.

High-Quality Crating Options

No two shipments are the same. We provide many crating options to ensure your specific items can withstand the rigors of the shipping environment. This includes:

Packaging Solutions That Support Our Crates

Our comprehensive crating services go hand-in-hand with the custom packaging plans designed to protect your assets. We know that these safety measures are just as vital to your item’s protection as the container itself. Utilizing every inch of space within the container, we make sure your valuables stay in place, unable to move, fitting meticulously in the crate for further protection.

Using high-end materials, our packing teams custom-design cushioning, wrapping, and supports to ensure a secure journey through the unpredictable shipping stream.
