A cost-effective alternative to flight cases is a packing crate. Available from 5 Star is a range of standard size packing crates which will find uses in all industry sectors and applications. However, if the standard range does not meet your exact needs, we can custom-build a packing crate to your specific requirement. Contact our sales team for further details.
Constructed from 18mm durable OSB (Oriented Strand Board), a panel processed by bonding layers of various wood chips and strips with adhesives, laminated together using pressure and heat. These crates provide a versatile method of storing and transporting items, negating the need for specialist flight cases.
As with all 5 Star flight cases and foam inserts , our packing crates are CNC-machined for accuracy and repeatability, and feature sprung metal clasps to secure the individual panels to each other. Also included is a pallet style fork-lift or pallet truck handling feature, with optionals available for an interior foam lining for additional equipment protection, or casters to the base for easier movement and transport of the packing crate.
Damaged products can cost a business up to 17 times more than the original shipping cost, making them extremely costly, and the impact often goes beyond just financial loss.
Damaged items can mean discounting the product or refunding your customer completely. But more than that, it can often result in loss of repeat business.
Thanks to our range of packing crates, we can provide a versatile method of storing and transporting a vast range of products that have uses across multiple industries and applications, from engineering and motor racing to medical and catering equipment, ensuring their contents aren't damaged in transit.
In fact, with an optional foam lining for additional equipment protection, 5 Star crates can be used to transport almost anything, anywhere, safely and securely.
As all our crates are constructed using OSB panels, plywood and composite wood blocks, a Phytosanitary Certificate is not required, as these materials are produced using pressure and heat which destroys any pests.
