Trade Show Shipping

MSS specially recruits professional technicians and exclusively trains them at our technical training facility housed at our headquarters in Montgomeryville, PA. Over the years, this process has enabled us to provide unmatched packaging and reusable crates to our trade show shipping clients.

We were recently appointed by a global material handling equipment manufacturer in Wilmington, DE to create a reusable crate for trade show shipping. 

Challenge 
It was essential that our experts create reusable crates that were large enough to house numerous pieces of equipment, and be relatively light and simple to work with. One of the critical factors for the crate and its contents was for them to require minimal use of tools to assemble and disassemble. This was important in order to avoid additional labor costs at the trade show locations. Minimizing the weight and volume of the crate would also save on freight transportation costs.
    
Description
Trade show exhibiting, due to its nature, entails the utilization of specialized crating techniques. Therefore, expedient, repeatable packing and unpacking of all goods to be displayed is crucial not only for cost savings, but also because the materials will be showcased at multiple locations nationwide. To support this important feature, all items were packed with an “engineered fit”, reusable crate, that allowed for minimal tooling.

Planning
In order to guarantee that we designed a compact and cost effective trade show shipping crate, MSS technicians first consulted with our client’s engineering and shipping departments to fully understand all the specifications. We then inventoried all items to be shipped and exhibited. Once this was complete, our technicians customized a crate that catered to the unique requirements of the trade show shipping process.

Process
MSS technicians constructed a reinforced crate with high-strength fasteners and water-resistant adhesives. With a system of high-density foam, straps and latches, the crates ensured that all items were secured within intuitive enclosures that also enabled our client to quickly and safely pack and unpack all items without the use of tools or additional labor.

Results
MSS provided a trade show shipping crate for our client that was not only simple and cost effective, but was also sustainable for many years.
