An Overview of the Crating, Packaging and Shipping of Military Assets

When it comes to a worldwide presence and the need to get equipment and other resources to where they are required quickly efficiently, no organization compares to the U.S. military. In fact, logistics are often referred to as the lifeblood of the military. Much of the transporting of goods for the Marine Corps, Air Force, Army, Navy and Coast Guard is handled by the branches themselves. However, they also use outside specialty crating, packaging and shipping companies to assist them with logistical challenges.

What Is White-Glove Delivery Service and Who Needs It?

The term “white-glove” services refers to assistance provided with an elevated level of care and attention to detail. (Learn more about the term and its origins below.) In specialty crating, packaging and shipping, those descriptions certainly apply, but the term can also mean an extension of typical services.
