Craters & Freighters provides custom corrugated containers to meet any shipping need. Corrugated is a durable, versatile, and lightweight material used for custom-manufactured shipping containers. We use a minimum 275 lb double wall corrugated fiberboard, which is made up of three sheets of linerboard with two mediums or flutes in between when building custom corrugated boxes.
Craters & Freighters fabricates custom wooden crates to protect items whose value or fragility requires the highest level of packaging. We offer a variety of crate styles designed to match the unique characteristics of each item we package, including size, weight, fragility, and orientation.
All crates are designed to be reusable. Moreover, all crates adhere to ISPM-15 ("bug stamp"), making them fully compliant with the requirements of participating countries.

Craters & Freighters offers custom interior packaging for each container we build. Crates and containers are lined and filled with the appropriate amount of cushioning agents to ensure items are secure for shipping.
