Industrial Crates

DuraCrate: Industrial Shipping Crates

When it comes to industrial shipping, our DuraCrate industrial crates are engineered to be the ideal shipping solution.

Our crates are made with six layers of extra-tough paper. This durable paperboard produces industrial crates that are less expensive and lighter weight than wooden shipping crates, allowing you to save money – in purchasing, in storage, and in shipping.

Despite the lighter weight and foldable storage, these industrial shipping crates can take a beating. They outperform corrugated cardboard shipping crates in protecting against puncture, weather and shipping damage.

Save money. Save space. Save damage.

DuraCrate Patent Protection

How do we do it?

We start by gluing together multiple plies of top-quality, high-strength paper to create the thickest and strongest laminated paperboard packaging. By focusing on quality over price, we’re able to create high-quality industrial crates at a lower cost, resulting in less shipping damage.

Our patented groove provides the most powerful 90-degree fold in paperboard. The result: The strongest, most square paperboard crates available.

Combining our high-quality substrates with our one-of-a-kind groove allows us to use less material than competitors. Less materials means both a lower crate cost and a lower shipping cost.

How much can I save on shipping with DuraCrate industrial shipping crates? Truck and tractor parts manufacturers save 20 percent or more when they ship with DuraCrates instead of wood shipping crates.

Custom Shipping Crates for Long Products

The advantages of our industrial shipping crates don’t stop with lower costs. With DuraCrate industrial shipping crates, you can ship abnormally long products – up to 35 feet long (420 inches). That’s because our industrial packaging manufacturing produces the best beam strength, allowing us to build wider, taller and longer crates than competitors.

Less expensive than plywood shipping crates, better protection from punctures and adverse weather and storage conditions than corrugated crates, and stronger than other paperboard products, DuraCrate industrial crates provide the solutions to your shipping challenges.
