What are Shipping Wood Crates?

Shipping wood crates are wooden boxes built to house large cargo or complicated items to transport items safely. Because of this, crates are usually heavy duty, made of heat treated lumber, plywood or sheathing. In addition, most have an inbuilt pallet. Thus, this pallet allows forklifts or pallet jacks to maneuver and load onto transport vehicles. Although this may be the norm, some crates can be small and lightweight.

There are many types of wood crates. Depending on their use, we can add additional hardware or add-ons. Some examples of shipping wood crates are:

  • Open Slat wood crates
  • Trade-show Crates
  • Knock Down Crates
  • Re-usable Crates
  • Heat Treated Wood Crates

Invariably, there are different guidelines to shipping items both domestically and internationally. For example, some countries apply restrictions regarding bark in wood, while all other international shipping require wooden crates to be either fumigated or heat treated – follow ISPM 15 certification. Accordingly, look for crates marked with an HT Stamp or a  IPPC mark, in order to determine if the crates are ISPM 15 compliant.

In addition to certifications, you will determine your means of transportation. Container sizes and shipping conditions will also determine what type of crate is best for you. Furthermore, additional packaging materials will be required to maintain your items from corroding, shifting or even breaking. Some examples of additional attributes may include:

  • Floating deck
  • Mylar and wrapping
  • Strapping
  • Foam Cushioning
  • Metal Brackets
  • Casters
  • Double entry pallet
  • Bracing

Heat Treated Shipping Wood Crates

BlueRose Packaging has extensive experience in the design of international wooden export ISPM 15 export certified for wood packing material requirements.

As the demand for exporting goods grow, many companies are in need of heat treated wood crates. That is why BlueRose Packaging stocks HT wood. To keep up with the demand and to fulfill your orders without delays. No matter what industry and need, BlueRose Packaging has the right option for you or your business. We manufacture Heat Treated wooden crates, complying with the ISPM-15 criteria and “bark free” crates for exporting to specific locations.

ISPM 15 is a standard developed by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC). It directly addresses the need to treat solid wood materials used to manufacture international shipping crates. IPPC governs that all wood packaging material (pallets, crates, dunnages, etc) destined for export packaging required to be treated with heat or fumigated with methyl bromide and marked with a seal of compliance. This seal of compliance is often referred to as the “bug stamp, or HT Stamp.”
