  • crating

    Industrial Crating

    MSS technicians study your requirements and use "time-tested" proven designs, in conjunction with the latest technology in materials and construction methods, to provide the best protection for your products. Many companies can provide you with a crate. MSS will provide you with protection. It's how you pack the product that really matters. Learn more about Custom Crating Services.

  • palletizing

    Palletizing & Skidding

    In many cases, complete crating is not required and Skidding can facilitate equipment handling. MSS offers heavy duty skidding, using properly sized timbers and hardware to allow forklift access, and with considerable cost savings over complete crating.

MSS is fully certified to build crates for international shipping, and we are IPPC stamped for export according to ISPM15 regulations. Learn more about ISPM 15 Certified standards for shipping wooden crates internationally.

  • mylar bags

    Vapor Barrier/Weather Shield

    Salt air and humidity can wreak havoc on exposed metal and sensitive electronics, so crating alone may not be enough for overseas transportation. Vacuum sealing a Mylar bag with appropriate levels of moisture absorbing materials (desiccant) is an excellent technique that minimizes corrosion. MSS fabricates and installs custom Mylar bags as an added service, providing ultimate protection from the elements! Weather shield shrink wrap maintains a complete form-fitted barrier from all the elements, and the UV inhibitor ensures no fading or damage from the sun.

  • ASTM crating

    ASTM & Mil-Spec Crating

    MSS is experienced at building government and military crate designs. Send us your ASTM or Mil Spec information and we will skillfully build you crates and pallets that meet the exact specifications you require. Click here to review project photos and learn more about International Packaging.

  • container loading

    Container Loading, Blocking and Bracing

    With ocean shipping, your valuable containerized goods are subject to the same forces of pitch and yaw that the ocean going vessel is exposed to. The higher your container sits on the vessel deck, the more vulnerable it is in stormy seas. MSS blocking and bracing methods reduce the risk of cargo damage during transit. Whether it be machinery, vehicles, electronics or any other non-bulk loads, our crews have the expertise necessary to prepare and protect your shipment for load, lash, block and brace.

  • rigging

  • on-site crating

  • shock-mount bases

    Shock-mount Bases

    MSS uses shock-mount bases to provide the additional cushioning often required for sensitive electronics and machinery to help minimize the rigors of freight transit. Learn how we helped an Internet security company prepare for transfer a set of highly sensitive server racks in one of our Data Center Moves.

  • heavy equipment

    Heavy Equipment

    MSS is accomplished in the handling and preparation of extremely heavy equipment. We have 37 years of experience designing and building deck structures that support lifting points while managing the center of gravity. You can trust that your product will arrive at its destination safely. We also recommend best practices for transportation methods.

  • shipment consolidation

    Shipment Consolidation

    MSS helps reduce the risk of cargo loss by consolidating many items into larger custom wooden crates. For example, multi-component computer systems or integrated machine parts may be better served traveling in one large box as opposed to many smaller pieces or cartons.
