“Bug Stamp” Crates
Each of our crates is designed and built using safe, effective, and certified wood that can easily gain access into its country of destination. Our ISPM 15 heat-treated wood crates have the “bug stamp” (the ISPM 15 stamp), which means our containers will meet the international shipping criteria and codes.
The packaging and shipping process used at our Birmingham international shipping company includes the completion of all paperwork, monthly warehouse inspections, and teams with the knowledge to get your items safely through the skies. Your peace of mind is our ultimate goal, and we plan to deliver.
Custom Crating and Packing Plans
To achieve a smart, successful shipment, the crating and packaging of your item must be precise. We use our decades-long experience, ingenuity, and technology to design and engineer packing schemes that protect the most fragile and bulky of items.
When engineering our custom wood containers and packaging, we account for the item’s:
- Final destination
- Mode of transportation
Considering the specs of your belongings helps us determine the most effective way to pack and ship your items. Your air freight project needs a proactive approach to keep it safe through transit, and our team is qualified to create a meticulous scheme of protection.
Finding the best supports, blocking, bracing, and cushioning, your valuables will stay secure throughout their journey, no matter how turbulent the transit gets.
