During the first quarter of 2016 SW Florida Craters & Freighters will introduce a new style knockdown crate that is reusable for consumers and manufacturers. The crates will be delivered to the customer for loading on-site and then picked up by the Craters & Freighters trucks for shipping. Once received at the final destination the client may use the crate for additional shipping or return it for re-use. This is just another way Craters & Freighters works toward being environmentally friendly.
The SW Florida location is proud to be an ecologically friendly business reports Gary McKinley, owner. “For each crate that the company builds, a tree is planted and our corrugated scrap material is given to Goodwill Industries to be bailed and sold for recycling. The small pieces of Styrofoam™ that are used in packing are bagged and returned to the manufacturer when new sheets are delivered. Craters & Freighters of SW Florida generates many small pieces of plywood and other dimensional lumber. Craters & Freighters deliver pallets of scrap wood to Habitat for Humanity regularly” stated McKinley. In addition, Craters & Freighters of SW Florida is certified in International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures No. 15 (ISPM-15) which requires that all solid wood packing material for international shipments be heat-treated and stamped with an official mark.
