Expert Medical Equipment Shipping & Packaging


Craters & Freighters is your “go-to” company for packing, crating, and shipping all types of medical equipment. We have the expertise and experience you can trust to handle medical devices that are heavy, oversized, and fragile, as well as equipment that contains delicate lasers, lenses, and gauges requiring specialized attention. These items can’t simply be placed in any type of container and expected to endure the rigors of shipping which is why Craters & Freighters is dedicated to the specific practices and ongoing education necessary for both medical equipment shipping and packaging.

Tailored Medical Equipment Packaging

Craters & Freighters understands the importance and necessity of the safe arrival of your equipment. Our expert team will precisely devise and execute a packaging and shipping plan tailored to your specific items, needs, and goals.

Medical device delivery is complex, often working with excessively large and invaluable items. Our team is trained in expertly packaging every one of these items with the proper support, both inside and outside of their custom wooden crates. Our medical equipment crating team is skilled at engineering the perfect crate for your needs.  

First your Craters & Freighters team will evaluate your medical equipment to determine the best way to pack, crate, and ship it based on its dimensions, fragility, and value. Using that assessment, we will offer the best packaging, container, and transportation options to ensure safe delivery. Medical equipment is securely mounted to skids, cushioned, and crated for safe and stable transport.

Realizing that many of our customers have others depending on them for the smooth execution of their unique medical shipment, we go above and beyond when it comes to customer service. Logistically, we will manage your entire shipping process from start to finish while keeping you up-to-date and inviting open communication.

For companies unfamiliar with the rigors of ocean international shipping, the biggest “threat” to a shipment can occur before it even sets sail. Most foreign countries have strict requirements regarding the use of wooden crates. This is because wooden crates can harbor pests that could, in theory, start an infestation in the destination country. A better approach is to avoid issues altogether by working with a company that has a deep understanding of the challenges companies face when utilizing ocean transport and the optimal solutions for those challenges.
