Wooden pallets are abundantly utilized throughout every sector of the American economy, but there of course are many different products that require an added amount of protection throughout the shipment process.

This is exactly why The Pallet Guys combine our custom-made pallets with custom wooden crates, because we always want to be able to fill in any potential gaps for each and every one of our clients’ shipping and logistics strategies.

Our custom wooden crates help business leaders in just about every industry, but there are a few industries and unique scenarios in which companies rely upon our wooden crates to an even greater extent. These industries/scenarios include the following:

  • Agricultural products
  • All types of oddly-shaped or fragile products
  • Industrial machinery

Agricultural Products

Custom wooden crates are particularly useful when it comes to supporting farming businesses during their harvests. This is mainly because farmers will grow all types of fruits and vegetables that come in all different sizes and shapes, and many times these types of products won’t sit properly within standard boxes. There are also many instances in which agricultural products are simply much too heavy for anything other than wood crates and secure packaging.

This is exactly why heavier agricultural products like potatoes will many times require custom wooden crates for shipping, and this is primarily due to weight and the need to properly support and organize large potato quantities.

Other heavier/delicate agricultural products like melons, garlic, tomatoes, pumpkins, apples and so much more also highly benefit from being shipped in custom wood crates!

Industrial Machinery Of All Types

Custom wooden crates also just so happen to be the most commonly used shipping method for all types of industrial machinery and equipment. The reasoning for this is primarily due to the added protection that wood crates provide, but it also has a lot to do with the endless customization possibilities in terms of securement anchors and other types of necessary supports.

Custom wood crates just so happen to be the perfect shipping method for extremely valuable parts and heavy machinery products, and these types of manufactured goods are shipped across the United States each and every day within custom crates.

Just about every type of valuable, oversized type of machinery equipment will utilize crates in some way or another, and some common industrial machinery examples that utilize custom wooden crates include the following:

  • Cargo Ships and Cruise liners: crankshafts, engines, propellers, etc.
  • Airline Companies: Fuselage, wing and engine parts
  • Large Liquid Containers: Chemicals, propane, water, etc.
  • Military Shipments: Food products, medical/hardware supplies

Oddly-Shaped Or Fragile Products

All types of fragile and oddly-shaped products shine a spotlight on the overall flexibility when utilizing custom wooden crates. It truly is limitless when it comes to the overall range of products that necessitate custom crate shipping, and this is due to varying sizes and general packaging requirements.

There are many different industries that need crates built for unique purposes, and when a business requires customization within their logistics, it’s always better to be safe than sorry and go above and beyond to protect your shipments through comprehensive crate building and security measures from shipping specialists like The Pallet Guys.

Some of the many fragile items that commonly require custom crating are electronic equipment and glass products. Some examples include:

  • Wine bottles
  • Paintings/sculptures
  • Drinking glasses/fragile kitchenware
  • Electronic equipment (particularly with lenses or gyroscopes)

There are also many different products that require custom wooden crates simply due to their dimensions and overall size, and of course the need for added security. An example of this would be a shipment of one or multiple motorcycles, which would utilize wooden floor railings and several anchor points to ensure that the motorcycle’s tires are properly secured in order to prevent it from potentially falling over during transport.
