On-Site Crating Services & Export Crating and Packaging
Reid Packaging offers custom on-site crating services to industrial manufacturers, rigging companies, freight forwarders, relocation companies and their shippers for items that are too large, heavy, fragile, valuable, uniquely shaped or too confidential to move before crating.
Reid Packaging is the service leader in the design and production of top quality custom crates. We are committed to providing our clients with unsurpassed quality and have perfected the art and science of full service on-site custom crating solutions. With over 25 years of experience Reid Packaging can provide solutions ranging from a single piece of equipment to a complete factory move, or a fully managed crating operation at your facility covering all your full time crating requirements.
On site crating services are designed to help our customers with those last minute shipping deadlines. We prepare items and crate them for moving locally, nationally or internationally, by land, sea or air. Rely on Reid Packaging for the experience to provide simple solutions to complicated industrial crating issues. Let us handle your custom on-site crating needs, so you can get back to your core business.
We can work from your specifications, but usually prefer to inspect and measure the items prior to construction of the crates. If you are requesting a quote based upon your measurements please also provide approximate weights and number and dimensions of load bearing feet, or surfaces.
Reid Packaging has extensive experience in the design of export crates & packaging complete with barrier bags and desiccant and is ISPM 15 export certified for wood packing material requirements.
ISPM 15 is a standard developed by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) that directly addresses the need to treat solid wood materials used to ship products internationally. It governs all wood packaging material (wood pallets, wood crates, wood dunnag, etc) used for export packaging, requiring that they be heat treated or fumigated with methyl bromide and marked with a seal of compliance. This seal of compliance is often referred to as the “bug stamp.”
All lumber purchased by Reid Packaging for crating meets or exceeds the ISPM-15 standard for heat treatment requirements for export shipments containing Solid Wood Packaging Material (SWPM). We can apply our ISPM-15 compliant “IPPC-HT” stamp to any of our wood crates, boxes and pallets specified for export packaging.
- The markings must be within a rectangular border with a a vertical line separating the IPPC logo from the indentifying data.
- The border lines may be solid or broken; and the corners may be rounded.
- XX – indicates a two letter ISO country code
- OOOO – the next series of letters/numbers is the unique identification mark of the wood treatment agent or packaging manufacturer. The number of letters or digits may vary according to each country.
- The country code and treatment agent or manufacturer code must be separated by a hyphen.
- YY – This indicates the type of treatment, and will either be HT (Heat Treatment) or MB (Methyl Bromide).
We also offer on-site crating services, container loading, blocking and bracing services with our export certified IPPC-HT compliant Dunnage stamp. We can also water- or vapor- proof your equipment to withstand the most critical conditions and climates either for shipping or for long-term storage.
