Custom Industrial Crating & Freight Shipping Services

Crate Experts

Compass Packaging Solutions is the expert in custom designed crates. We build crates to fit the exact specifications of our customers’ needs. Whether the requirement is a simple wooden box or a complex cushioned crate, with our wealth of experience in the crating industry, Compass Packaging Solutions can assist you with all your crating requirements.

Professionally Designed Crates

Our engineers design each crate specific to our customers’ product shipping requirements, whether from a computer solid model or visiting on site and taking physical measurements, we work closely with our customers to ensure our designs meet their needs. We utilize the latest software programs, such as SolidWorks and ArtiosCAD to assist in the design process of our crates.

Concept to Finished Product

We custom design our crates to the required customer specifications. Once the design is customer-approved, our team will build a physical prototype for form, fit, finish approval, and submission for customer approval and testing (if required). Once the crate design has been validated and approved, the custom-designed crates are produced in our state-of-the-art crate manufacturing facility.

Our custom designs ensure that your product is shipped safely to its final destination, whether domestic or international.

Compliance and Standards

Compass Packaging Solutions 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, cleanroom, or heavy industrial applications with all necessary documentation.
