Open Slat Wood Crate

Open slat crates are ideal when shipping items bare or when full boxing is cost prohibitive.


The crate-designed shipper can provide exterior protection along with vertical protection when stacking is a concern.


The crate is also lighter than an enclosed box potentially lowering your overall packaging and shipping cost.
