EXCEPTIONAL SUPPORT FOR TRANSPORTED LOADS
Purpose-Built Custom Pallets and Skids
Craters & Freighters Nashville can build custom wood pallets and skids for virtually anything that must be shipped or stored with confidence. Sturdy skids and pallets are a great alternative to wood crates for large pieces of machinery, industrial equipment and for items not needing more extensive packaging.
Our shipping professionals work with several Nashville industries that use our comprehensive palletizing and shipping solutions for their valuable, oversized, durable assets. If your items need reliable and secure pallet transportation, whether domestically or internationally, we’re ready to help.
A pallet is a low, portable platform with or without sides. Pallets are used to store, ship, and move anything from raw materials to finished goods. Pallets or load bases are typically built of wood and can be designed to any specification in order to support loads of varying size and weight distribution.
These vital, high-powered organizations rely on our expertise and guidance to handle overly complex pieces of equipment, devices, and goods. At Craters & Freighters Nashville, we have the high-quality materials, insight, and experience to custom design pallets for almost any asset, ensuring its safety throughout the shipping stream or while in storage.
- A skid is a platform supported by two or more parallel runners that raise the platform to make it easier to lift with mechanical equipment.
- A skid differs from a pallet or load base in that it is typically higher and does not have additional cross members and stringers as support below the runners.
- Skids are used to stabilize loads and help with storage, handling, and transportation.
We use only the highest quality of wood and materials to support your rugged, solid, and bulky assets. Our skids are designed to keep these large items safe and secure while being transported. You can trust our designers to build tailored skids that will successfully move your equipment pieces or goods wherever they need to go.
