Our wood crates are designed with great thought being put into the mode of transportation that you elect to ship your cargo. Whaling Packagings' crating engineers leave nothing on the table…they give you viable solutions to move your product safely in transportation.
We build all boxes & crates using APA rated CDX plywood and dimensional lumber depending on engineering and design specifications. All custom-built wood crates are based on individual client needs. We package and ship a diverse array of products ranging from electro-stat sensitive circuit boards to aircraft components to motorcycles and prototype autos.
Whaling Packaging has been an approved Department of Defense packaging organization for over 35 years. We maintains an extensive Mil-Spec library that is current with all military specification packaging requirements (MIL-STD-129, MIL-STD-2073, ASTM D6039 (MIL-C-104 - crates up to 30,000 lbs), ASTM D6251 (PPP-B-601), and MIL-HDBK-701 (skids up to 140,000 lbs) just to name a few). We can build boxes and crates to all military / government specifications as well as unique industrial specificiations.
Our engineers can design and build re-useable crates. The designs can be simple with just screws for opening and closing or complex with hinges, ramps, doors, handles and latches. Crates can be foam-lined or the foam can be detailed cut to fix around the product being shipped.
Our wood crating facility is equipped with contemporary wood working tools and production processes so we can provide you with the most competitive and cost effective wood boxing/crating in the industry.
