Industrial Packing, Shrink-Wrapping & Crating for Exports
We are proud to say we are professionals when it comes to blocking and bracing items for all kinds of shipments. We have a reputation for our expertise in crating difficult goods, from an entire factory of heavy machinery to highly sensitive items such as fine art. We have the craftsmanship and technology to pack and crate your goods for shipping whether by land, sea or air.
Our association with INPRO, a worldwide association of independent packing companies, allows us to provide packing solutions in most areas of the world. We know what’s going on around the world in the packing and crating industry, and bring those technologies and systems home to you.
We are approved by the CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) for adherence to regulations aimed at preventing the spread of insects. We also strictly adhere to the ISPM (International Standards For Phytosanitary Measures) # 15 Guidelines for Regulating Wood
Packing Material used in International Trade. You can be confident that when we pack and crate an item our work always conforms to International Regulations.
Transloading Services for Imports
Transloading is becoming very popular with importers because it saves time and money. With our specialized equipment and highly trained staff we have become the preferred location for quickly destuffing containers and transferring the contents for shipping out via truck.
We have the equipment to provide our services efficiently and professionally, including a forklift with up to a 90,000 lbs lifting capacity, and two more 40,000 lb forklifts. We also utilize industrial application panel saws, cut-off saws, wall jigs and pneumatic nailers in our manufacturing process. Furthermore, we also are set up with the proper equipment to provide on-location services when required. We can often bring our services to you.
Cratex is a licensed sufferance facility used by the Canadian Border Services Agency to risk assess and release some imported goods coming into Canada. If you are interested in Cratex’s sufferance facility you can find more information by contacting us directly or by visiting our sufferance page.
