iStock_crates2014 has been a great year in terms of presenting us with a number of interesting industrial crating projects. Here’s a quick sampling:

  • The Pak Mail Pittsburgh Crate & Ship on-site crating team completed a project last week for large machine tool manufacturer involving the shipment of a large metallurgy furnace to Asia. Sensitive electronic control panels and units needed wrapped and protected against the corrosive effects of salty ocean air. This was done using 7-mil marine grade polyethylene shrink film and desiccant as calculated per the MIL-STD-2073 specification.
  • Pak Mail Pittsburgh Crate & Ship provides “ready-to-assemble” custom export (ISPM-15) crates to a large West Virginia manufacturer of conveyor and material handling equipment. This customer often requires these heavy-duty, custom sized crates on very short notice with 2nd day shipping (and sometimes next day shipping)Pak Mail Crates
    of the units. We have proud to say that we have never missed a deadline ever with this client and despite the dreadful winter  we have experienced this past (and present!) winter. We ship these crates “ready-to-assemble” to reduce the freight classification and minimize the freight cost. You may be surprised to learn how inexpensively we can ship custom crates around the country.
