Transporting and protecting products is one of the most critical functions of any business. With supply chain and labor shortage concerns continuing to strain organizations, both large and small, it’s more important than ever to ensure your products navigate the supply chain as quickly, safely, and efficiently as possible. 

Plus, with more products and competitors entering the market daily, fast and reliable order fulfillment is a must to maintain both your competitive advantage and your customers’ satisfaction. As a result, it’s essential that your products are protected from damage during both storage and shipping. 

One way to ensure safe, efficient transportation is using custom crates, bins, or pallet boxes that are designed to meet your exact products’ needs and keep them safe and secure at every stage of the supply chain. 

Fortunately, when you work with a custom crate manufacturer, finding a solution that fits your needs is easy.

Benefits of Custom Wood Crates and Pallet Boxes

While there are standard crates, wood crates, and pallet boxes used across industries, there are many times when a custom solution is needed to safely and efficiently transport or store your products. 

The following are a few key benefits of custom crate solutions for savvy business owners: 

  • Custom Crates Protect Products During Transit
    • Custom crates are a must to keep your products safe and secure during transit. Shipping industrial products often requires custom-sized rugged, and sturdy crates to protect heavy, expensive equipment during shipment and prevent damage. In addition, perishable produce like fruits and vegetables require sturdy, breathable storage and transportation solutions to protect their quality and get fresh food to stores and to the end customers as quickly and safely as possible. 
  • Custom Crates Provide Easy Shipment Handling 
    • Custom crates and pallet boxes are built exactly to your specifications, keeping the contents of the crate secure while also making crates easier to handle–whether your products are moving locally or shipping internationally. Easier shipment handling not only increases transportation efficiency, getting products to their destination in record time, but it also further protects shipments from damage by helping prevent drops. 
  • Custom Crates Save Shipping Time and Costs
    • Ultimately, using custom crates and pallet boxes improves the safety and efficiency of transportation and storage for your products, saving significant time and costs. Custom crates save repair or replacement costs by reducing the risk of damage when shipping industrial products. Meanwhile, getting high-quality products to customers quickly and in excellent condition helps you keep your customers happy and retain their business. 
  • Custom Wood Crates Are a Sustainable Choice
    • Finally, custom wood crates are a sustainable choice for your business when you work with a manufacturer that is committed to reducing packaging waste. PalletOne leads the industry in unit load design, reducing waste, improving energy and space efficiency, and reducing product damage during shipping.
