Wooden boxes and export packing crates

Plywood wooden boxes and crates

Plywood cases are used when customers need to dispatch either valuable and/or sensitive products. They’re also used when dispatching multiple components in an export packing wooden case. For example aftermarket parts or products such as gearboxes, engines or metal castings. Where weight is less of an issue they provide a robust solution to protect the product. Our plywood boxes are manufactured to customer specific requirements and are predominantly used for export applications and made from heat treated timber framing, in compliance with ISPM 15. The plywood material allows the box to breathe, thus limiting exposure to moisture during transportation.

Our plywood wooden boxes and wooden crates are:

  • Manufactured to any size in order to meet your requirements
  • Excellent stacking capabilities
  • Manufactured from competitive sterling board, also in compliance with ISPM 15
  • Crates fully lined for increased protection
  • Plywood cases branded as well as sprayed for easy identification

Of course, we are also happy to service your every need in custom-made wooden cases, storage cases, archive cases and reusable cases. Wooden boxes and cases are manufactured from ISPM15 approved materials. They are also branded with the ISPM logo and our certificate number. Therefore, they are fully traceable. We are also able to provide any special requirements such as waterproofing, foil barrier packing or other additional protection.

Wooden export packing crates

While not offering the same level of complete product protection as a plywood cases, wooden export packing crates offer excellent value for money for many applications. Wooden crates can be an ideal solution for specific products. The weight is considerably lower than that of a case. Furthermore, your product is visible from the outside, ensuring that your shippers know what kind of product they are shipping, lifting or loading. Wooden cases and crates are quick and easy to assemble and dismantle without a single nail involved.

Reusable and returnable clip crates

Our wooden reusable cases are ideal for expositions, exhibitions and conferences. Equipped with extra heavy butterfly locks and made to measure, fully or partially collapsible, printed with your logo (shipping mark) or equipped with a ramp, hinged lids or panels with compartment division. They are also equipped with wheels.

Returnable packing is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative for customers who have an extensive flow of goods with a limited number of distribution points.

We provide returnable packing in suitable materials for transport and handling requirements.

Export packing – shrink wrap

Shrink wrap technology provides protection from water, road contamination and UV rays, additionally it’s cost-effective ensuring excellent protection in transit.

VCI shrink wrap for ferrous and non-ferrous metals contains a chemical compound, which releases an invisible, odourless, and non-toxic corrosion inhibiting vapour into the air. Molecules settle on exposed metal surfaces, therefore interrupting the electrochemical corrosion process. The equipment is removed from the packing, and the corrosion inhibiting molecular layer vaporizes into the atmosphere, as a result leaving behind clean, dry, corrosion free parts.

Export packing – aluminium barrier foil

Goods in danger of corrosion require protection in climatic packing. For example, aluminium barrier foil for sea, polar and tropical shipment, also during long-term storage. Packed goods are sealed into steam-tight layer foils (aluminium composite or polyethylene), closing off the goods hermetically against outer air. The inner atmosphere is kept securely below 50% rh and volume of desiccant units, is calculated accordingly therefore absorbing residual moisture in the sealed packing.
