Reliable Crating and Packing in Elk Grove Village, IL

You need to know that the items you ship are going to arrive at their destination quickly and safely. The team at Custom Crating & Logistics helps you accomplish that goal, thanks to our shipping and packing in Elk Grove Village, IL. We work with customers of all sizes to provide custom crating and freight for everything from delicate assemblies to large, high-tech machinery.

Most of the work we provide involves LTL or LCL size packages that we ship by truck, ocean, and air. We operate our own trucks and collect pad, protect, strap, and transfer many of our customer’s packages to our crating facility to ensure everything is primed and ready to go when it comes time to ship out.

Secure Custom Crating

We ensure our professional crating and packing will help to protect your items during shipping. We use only the best quality construction lumber and panels for our on-site packaging and never use trash lumber to try to save a few cents. Our standard industrial packing product consists of a substantial, forklift-able platform adequate to the weight of the machine or equipment we are crating, and usually plywood or OSB panels with external 1 x 4 or 2 x 4 frames.

We specify fasteners, anti-humidity barriers and drying agents, internal blocking, bracing, packaging, and padding appropriate to the size, weight, and fragility of every item. Each of our customers receives the full measure of our material, packing, and crating skills as well as the benefit of our project management expertise. Let us help you get your crated items to their destinations quickly and safely through our custom crating and packing services and partnerships with major ocean, air, truck, and rail carriers.
