Our lumber is inspected regularly to insure that the wood that your crates are made from meets or exceeds Federal requirements for exporting. Our IPPC Seal enables us to ship your personal items or machinery around the world.
Wooden pallets and crates are the primary packing ways for products to be shipped internationally. For years destructive insects and organisms have been shipped from one country to the next when exporting crates and packing materials.
ISPM 15 is an International Phytosanitary Measure developed by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) that directly addresses the need to treat wood materials of a thickness greater than 6mm, used to ship products between countries. Its main purpose is to prevent the international transport and spread of disease and insects that could negatively affect plants or ecosystems.
Craters & Freighters is the leading expert in packaging and crating items for international export from the US. Each one of our locations has extensive knowledge on ISPM-15 wood crating, undergoes monthly inspections, and is required to document all incoming and outgoing wood types from their warehouse.
Craters & Freighters’ crates and packaging are designed to meet your item's needs. We consider many factors when designing our crates & packaging including weight, dimensions, value, fragility and final destination requirements. Our team of experts then goes to work on building a crate that best suits the item.Read More Request Estimate
