CW Crates & Pallets
Industrial growth has generated a need for all kinds of crates and pallets, and crate design has evolved over the years to accommodate almost any piece of industrial equipment.
A properly designed crate will absorb the majority of the stress imposed by the handling and stacking that occurs during shipping. It calls for a use of lumber that balances weight against strength requirements.
CW designs pallets with purpose, destination, and usage in mind. It’s essential to engineer pallets for the proper weight load, but there are other important considerations.
Consumers are innately driven to shop for the lowest price, but when it comes to crating valuables and goods for transport, design, ethics, and experience are equally important considerations in the buying process. A poorly constructed crate may come at a cheap cost, but the expense of its failing can be substantial.
The right design will protect its contents, decrease shipping costs, reduce liability costs, and benefit the environment with an efficient use of materials.
The cargo’s footprint is a good example. In the case of a heavy piece of machinery supported by four legs, blocking may need to be added to the design between contact points. In the case of fragile cargo, a shock based pallet may be the most prudent design.
Pallet design has evolved over the years to suit almost any load, and CW specializes in designing the right quality for the right price. They can even look at your existing design and consult with you on ways it can be improved.

BRACING & PACKING
The basics here are to immobilize and protect. Packing options include lumber bracing, strapping, bubble wrap, stretch wrap, foam packing and bracing, and custom bagging.
CW’s crating specialists can pack and crate at the customer’s location or at their own facility, depending on the cargo and customer preference.
If you have moisture sensitive cargo requiring a waterproof seal during transport, CW has got you covered - literally.
Vacuum sealing, also known as shrink wrapping or vapor sealing, can help prevent corrosion and other moisture damage. It's smart to vacuum seal equipment that will be sitting for an extended period of time, that is being shipped on flatbed trucks, ocean freighters, or to a humid location.
