Flexible Packaging and Shipping Services That Support Our Crates
Craters & Freighters offers packaging and shipping for any size shipments. If you require expedited shipping or white-glove service, we can meet those needs.
We can also provide you with economical packaging and shipping options from corrugated packaging to terminal pickups.
Our comprehensive crating services go hand-in-hand with the custom packaging plans designed to protect your assets. We know that these safety measures are just as vital to your item’s protection as the container itself.
We also maximize every inch of space within each container, making sure your asset stays in place, fitting snugly within the crate. Using high-end materials, our packing teams custom-design cushioning, wrapping and supports to ensure a secure journey through the unpredictable shipping stream.
3D Modeling Software
At Craters & Freighters, we use SolidWorks, a popular 3D CAD (computer-aided design) software that is widely used in various industries, including automotive, aerospace, architecture, consumer goods, and manufacturing. With it’s powerful tools, including the ability to draw using either parts or assemblies, rendering and other tools, we are able to custom design precise packaging and create drawings for production crates.
STEP, IGES and other common files produced by most 3D modeling software and design foam, corrugated, and plywood packaging contoured to the shape of customer products are accepted. We are then able to output those designs from the 3D model to be cut on our precision cutting tables and CNC machines.
Notable projects have been airplane wing parts, automotive parts, and a 30ft Sailfish statue 3D scanned with a drone!
