Package Design & Engineering
Take the uncertainty out of the export packaging process by enlisting the help of Industrial & Wholesale Lumber. We’ll assist with the design and manufacturing of your crates, pallets or skids and give you peace-of-mind that your products will arrive in perfect condition wherever their destination. By determining the method of transport your products will experience, we can ensure adequate protection for your products. Whether shipping via air, road, rail or sea travel helps determine whether a plywood box, heavy-duty crate or disposable / reusable pack should be utilized.
