Products are subject to many hazards during transportation. The major cause of damage is shock and vibration, followed by rough handling, compression, puncture and abrasion. Your valuable products will be handled many times by hand and/or mechanical means between the time they leave your door and arrive at their destination. And they will travel with a myriad of other products (FAK) when transported by LTL, LCL or Air Freight. If you want to be sure yours are packed and crated to withstand the rigors of transportation, Craters & Freighters provides the expertise that delivers.
