After 40 years in the crating and packaging industry, we’ve learned a few things about – well, crating and packaging. We’ve compiled this information into a few handy Money Saving Tips. For instance, knowing a lot about your destination can save money:
Cold? Humid? Hot? Rainy? All of these factors assist in determining what materials should be used to best protect your cargo.
Destination climate is one of the determining factors in selecting the best materials to protect your project. The experts at American Crating Company know what works best in scorching heat, sub-zero cold and everything in between
Lumber Restrictions & Regulations
Some countries restrict the types of lumber and regulate the size and construction of crates. Using the wrong design or materials may result in fines.
Lumber restrictions in some destinations may limit the types, size and construction of crates. The wrong design or materials can lead to large fines or even your shipment being stopped and held
Knowing the climate and rules of your shipping destination are critical to cost effective crating and packaging. At American Crating, we design and build containers that ship all over the world and probably have the climate and regulation information for your destination in our system already.
