Are you tired of your shipping containers breaking? Are you looking for sustainable shipping boxes for your business? Maybe you are getting too many damage claims, or your freight costs keep going up each quarter? This could be a good time to explore the many benefits of wooden shipping boxes and crates from Timber Creek. In fact, here are four great reasons to consider wood.
1. You Have Little Control Over Freight Handling
Your people may be very careful and experienced with moving and loading goods. However, once your products leave your facility, you have almost no control over what happens. Custom wood crates are more forgiving than cheaply made containers, and they can take some abuse.
2. Fragile Loads
You can carefully mark each container as “fragile,” but these words do very little to protect what’s inside. When you use custom-made wooden shipping boxes from Timber Creek, your materials are fully protected. For example, do you need something designed to prevent crushing? Maybe you want containers that keep their contents from moving about. We can design and build the right wooden shipping boxes for your business.
3. Staging and Stacking
Many companies routinely stage their goods before loading. This makes it easier to count and check loads. Crates made from wood are easily stacked, so it takes less space to stage your materials. It’s also easier to place them into stock because we can give you skid bottoms you can load with lift trucks. There’s no need to invest in a lot of pallets.
4. Many Options
Timber Creek can create just about any kind of wooden shipping boxes you need. We can give you fully assembled containers, or you to save space, you can put them together at your facility.
