Craters & Freighters has decades of knowledge and experience in customized packaging and crating for government agencies. Having worked within the industry for so long, we’ve learned the sensitive nature of these assets, and have produced specific solutions to meet their unique requirements.

Designed and engineered within our Phoenix-based shipping facility, each project is thoroughly assessed with intention. Our team draws from numerous sources to create the optimal containing and protecting environment for government and industrial items.

Sources used include:

Crate-building and packaging materials are determined based on the characteristics of the asset to be shipped, including density, shock value, drop, vibration, and recovery.
