Crating & Containerization Services Procurement in the US
This report is intended to assist buyers of crating and containerization services. These services include packaging stocked or custom foam boxes, cases or crates, which suppliers sell along with the labor required to encase goods in these protective containers. Additionally, this report covers the procurement of packing and unloading services for trailers and intermodal containers that buyers purchase or lease from third parties. In packing these large receptacles, suppliers apply the same techniques regarding the padding, wrapping, bracing and weight balancing of goods as those used in crating. Crating and containerization services can be performed at either the buyer’s or supplier’s facility. This report does not cover the procurement of shipping services.
