“Bug Stamp” Crates
We know the importance of your freight, and to ensure its quick and streamlined entry into its destination country, we are careful to use certified, ISPM 15 heat-treated wood crates that have the “bug stamp” (the ISPM 15 stamp). Doing this means our custom wooden containers will meet the international shipping criteria for safe and fast entry.
Our teams manage the completion of any documentation, adhere to monthly warehouse inspections, and design the protection schemes that keep your assets secure through transit.
Custom Crating and Packing Plans
Our packaging team uses spec-driven programs, a mastery of design and engineering, and decades-long experience to build the precise crating and packing creation for your valuable assets. No matter how sensitive or fragile, Craters & Freighters designers do the job to perfection.
When engineering our custom wood crates and packaging schemes, we account for the item’s:
- Final destination
- Mode of transportation
Once these specs are determined, we have the knowledge to make the most effective, efficient ocean freight shipping plan so you can rest assured your items will arrive damage-free and on schedule.
