Standard and Custom Crates
Alliance Packing and Shipping Inc.'s set the international standard for what collapsible, reusable shipping crates should be. We have even had them certified by the US Military to hold 4,000 lbs of live ammunition and stack 3 high when fully assembled. We construct every Quick-Crate to the highest standard so that our customers will have a crate that will not only offer superior product protection, but will also last. We have many customers who have used our crates for 50+ return cycles.
When return cycling or warehousing, Quick-Crates can collapse to just 9” high, a ratio of about 5:1. That’s 1/5 of the truckload or warehouse space! They also ship at freight class 50 when collapsed, which allows for even lower freight costs. View a Payback Schedule to learn more about financial savings using Alliance Packing and Shipping Inc.
Alliance Packing and Shipping Inc. can be set up by 1 person in less than 3 minutes. The panels are held together with steel clips that snap into machined slots. There are no special tools, screws, nails or metal banding required. See our Assembly Video & Assembly Sheet.
Reusable Alliance Packing and Shipping Inc. are constructed with ¾” exterior grade plywood. We machine the panels to size on our 3 in-house computerized (CNC) routers. Not only are they highly efficient, allowing us to produce hundreds of crates a week, but they can cut to tolerances of .005”. The block-pallet system beneath the crate allows for 4-way entry. To add an extra level of durability, we bolt, instead of nail, the pallet blocks to the base panel. This helps our crates tolerate more forklift abuse than a traditional crate.
An attractive feature of the Alliance Packing and Shipping Inc. system for many customers is the fact that they can be used for international export. Because of the heat treating process used during the manufacturing of plywood our Alliance Packing and Shipping Inc. are 100% ISPM-15 export compliant. No heat treating stamps needed.
Built to your specifications, Alliance Packing and Shipping Inc. can be manufactured for virtually any size or shape product. We also offer a full-range of add-ons including casters, dunnage, split panels, lift handles, paint, stencils and much more. See our Dunnage & Options Photo Gallery.
