Crates & Crating Services

Crates

Compass Packaging Solutions is an expert in custom-built, durable crates. We build your crate to fit the exact specifications you need. With over 50 year’s combined experience in the crating industry, CPS can assist you with all your crating requirements!

Professionally designed and tested crates

CPS builds each crate specific to each part whether from a computer model or coming to your site and taking the measurements, we work closely with your engineering staff to ensure you what you need. CPS uses the latest software when it comes to designing your shipping crates, such as Sold Works, Auto-Cad, Pro-E along with many other programs.

CPS is a member of the Northeastern Lumber Manufacturers Association (NELMA) meeting all ISPM 15 guidelines for regulating wood packaging material in international trade. We offer transit testing and can design to your standards whether it be for military, hazardous, clean room or heavy industrial with all necessary documentation.

The key to our service is that we customize your crate to the required specifications. Our team custom designs a crate for the job – from design on page, to model and final fabrication. Custom design means that your product is shipped safely, with both domestic crating and export-compliant crating designs.
