Custom Wood Crates, Pallets and Shipping Containers

Specialty onsite crating and packaging services are among the many services offered by Mil-Spec Packaging. Here are some of the benefits to having us perform crating and packaging jobs in your facility.

  • Delicate instruments or equipment that will be used in a clean room environment can be crated on site and placed in protective barrier bags to reduce the level of contaminants. This also provides adequate cushioning through the use of shock pallets and floater decks before being moved off site.
  • Manufacturers are able to provide records that proper shipping precautions were taken that ensure safe transit of product using custom crates & crating systems from their dock to the final destination.
  • Manufacturers of specialized equipment frequently produce high ticket items at a low production volume. By utilizing our trained and experienced crews in designing and building custom crating systems for your product, you are assured of a top quality job without having to keep specially trained staff on your payroll.
  • The costs and logistics of moving large items or a large number of items make onsite crating and packaging the most cost effective solution.
