Custom Crating Northern Chicago
Craters & Freighters Northern Chicago engineers crate solutions customized for the item being shipped. We take pride in engineering and building the best crate options possible to assure your items arrive safe and damage-free.
Our engineering services draw from many resources including an extensive MIL-Spec library, AutoCAD, crating and cushioning software, and our 33 years of experience in crating everything from fine art to priceless antiques; highly sensitive medical devices to massive aerospace parts.
Because different styles of boxes and crates have different load capacities, starting with the best style to match your item is critical. However, accounting for shock and vibration for many items can be just as critical, which is why we are specialists at developing and using the proper cushioning materials based on item weight, fragility and vibration sensitivity. Adequately securing your contents inside the box or crate is the final step to make certain your shipment will be able to withstand the rigors of the shipping environment.
