Planning for Every Situation

Whether it’s a single piece of machinery or a full production line, our custom skidding and crating solutions will ensure you get the results you need every time. Some of the factors we will take into consideration include:

  • Climate and temperature control
  • Moisture and condensation prevention
  • Elimination of vibration or jostling during transport
  • Static electricity

When your machinery or equipment reaches its final destination, you can feel confident that it is in the same condition it was when it left and retains the same functionality.

Consolidation

You may have goods, freight, or even equipment for your facilities that are in multiple locations. If you need to coordinate their packing and transportation so that they all arrive at a certain location at appropriate times, we will consolidate the shipments to cut down on costs and make the process more efficient.

Custom Crating & Skidding

Different materials or objects, such as larger components of an assembly line, or highly sensitive machinery will need customized crating for protection during transport. The dimensions are important, but there may be other factors such as insulation, shock or impact indicators, foam packaging for additional protection, jigs, fixtures, supports, and proper crating for loading that only experts can arrange for safe transportation.
