Pittsburgh’s Export Crating Professionals

Export Crating Services

Export Crating Greater Pittsburgh, Eastern Ohio, Western Pennsylvania, West VirginiaThere are many factors to consider when packaging and crating for international shipments. Many foreign countries require that all crates made out of wood being shipped from the U.S. be heat treated to reduce the risk of pest infestation. These crates require an approved stamp known as the “bug stamp” or ISPM-15 mark, certifying the crate meets international shipping standards. However, just because heat-treated lumber is used to build a wood crate doesn’t mean that it is certified for international export.

That’s where we come in! Pak Mail Pittsburgh Crate & Ship is Western Pennsylvania’s leading crater. We can assist you with all aspects of export crate building. We are the Pittsburgh area’s leading expert in packaging and crating items for international export from the US.

  • We use sophisticated software to determine the best packing and crating design options based on fragility, item composition, value, and international destination.
  • We design and build corrugate and solid wood export crates.
  • We offer on-site packing and crating services.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ International Shipping Review⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

April 21st, 2017 by

Here’s a recent review on our international packing and shipping services:

 

International Shipping Greater Pittsburgh, Eastern Ohio, Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia

April 17, 2017

This was a very pleasant experience! We were quite anxious about the safety of the 17th century antique, how carefully it might be wrapped and crated and if it would arrive undamaged—or at least with only minimal damage. Well, it did arrive safely and without any damage at all– despite a transatlantic flight.
The administrative handling was equally professional. We especially appreciated prompt answers to any question we had concerning the transportation.
Thank you, Ana and the others at Pak Mail, for a job truly well done!

Custom Crates PittsburghGot 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.
