Got something heavy, large, fragile, or all three to get from here to there? Pak Mail Pittsburgh Crate & Ship has all the capabilities to solve your most complex packing and shipping challenges. A recent example is a large (56″ x 56″ x 103″) circuit breaker weighing 3000 lbs and requiring special protection to ship overseas via ocean freight. We started by wrapping the unit in 6 mil VCI (Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor) shrink film to protect from the corrosive effects of salty sea air. The next step was to custom crate the unit in a heavy-duty export compliant crate equipped with high-tech Sorbothane vibration isolating pads that lower the natural frequency of a system (like a container ship engine) to below the excitation (or disturbing) frequency (think: less shake delivers a better cake). Finally, the crate was equipped with shock-watch & tilt indicators, and banded for extra crate strength with high-tensile metal banding.
Completed export crating of 13 hi-tech industrial machines (complete with heat-shrink marine wrap & desiccant) and loading/bracing of 40′ ocean container onsite at customer location. Planning is everything with 1″ to spare (out of 473″ container length) when closing doors!
