Packing Products for Shipping Phoenix
Craters & Freighters Phoenix provides custom corrugated container and boxes to meet any shipping needs. Corrugated is a durable, versatile and lightweight material used for custom-manufactured shipping containers. We use a minimum 350lbs double wall corrugated fiberboard that is made up of three sheets of linerboard with two mediums or flutes in between when building custom corrugated boxes.
Corrugated packaging is a less expensive alternative to wood crating for items that require less protection during shipping and handling. Each container is built to meet the needs of the item being shipped. Many factors are considered to offer our clients the proper container based on weight, dimensions, value, mode of transport and final destination requirements. We can do what is called a TCT-4 which is a custom 4 sided, top and bottom container or a TC container that is a bottom and lid. Also we build a cleat box which is a TCT-4 with 1x4 framing.
Corrugated containers are reinforced with the addition of strapping, banding and palletizing. Our expertise ensures that your item will arrive safe, damage-free and on time.
Craters & Freighters Phoenix offers free quotes for any corrugated container or custom box need. We handle all aspects of the shipping process including pick-up, packaging, crating, insuring, and delivery!

Anti-Static Packaging (ESD)
Many electrical components, including computer chips, electronic assemblies and circuit boards can be damaged beyond repair by electrical discharges. ESD (Electro Static Discharge/AntiStatic) packaging is essential to protect these items from serious damage. This is especially important for our electronics shipping customers.
Craters & Freighters Phoenix uses a wide variety of anti-static packaging materials, including wraps, cushioning and barriers to prevent electro static discharges from damaging your sensitive items.
Vapor Barrier Packaging
Electronics and items with sensitive or bare metal surfaces that are being transported by ocean container require moisture vapor proof packaging. Salt water and salt water vapor put sensitive electronic components and metal surfaces at risk of corrosion, potentially harming the product's functionality. Craters & Freighters Phoenix places items such as these in a moisture vapor barrier bag with activated desiccant inside the bag before the final seal, thus lowering the humidity level inside the barrier bag.
The common barrier material (among many) used by the Government is MIL-PRF-131. The desiccant used is activated clay conforming to the specification MIL-D-3464. A humidity indicator card can be placed inside the bag so that the condition of the item and the desiccant can be checked upon opening. Humidity indicator plugs that project through the barrier material are also available and allow for checking the humidity inside the barrier bag without actually opening it.
The use of moisture vapor barriers and desiccant are currently known in the MIL-STD-2073 specification, under the Method of Preservation, by the codes 50, 51, 53, 54 and 55. This type of packaging helps prevent corrosion of the packed item being by reducing the moisture vapor inside of the heat sealed barrier bag enclosure.

Craters & Freighters Phoenix stands apart from the competition in our unique ability to offer specialized cushioning for each and every shipment. Simply building a container and placing an item inside will not stand up to the handling and shipping processes of today's common carriers.
The quantity and density of cushioning materials such as polyethylene or polyurethane foams are determined based on the item characteristics as applied to density, shock value, drop, vibration and recovery. Inadequate or improper use of cushioning products can damage or destroy the product during normal transportation conditions.
