What are custom shipping crates?
Custom shipping crates are the protective packaging around manufactured goods that ship via some form of transportation be it plane, train, truck, or boat!
The shipping industry is filled with wooden crates designed to protect a product as it travels from point A to point B.
The trick is to evaluate which shipping method will be used; open bed truck, enclosed trailer, rail car, or steel container and to ensure a custom shipping crate design that will fit within the limitations of the forms of transportation.
