Custom Crate Builder Preferred by Manufacturers 

MSS was employed by a contract manufacturer located in Eagleville, PA to develop and prepare two product lines to safely crate and ship medical devices. Shipping the sensitive medical equipment would be frequent and required a consistent crating and packaging process. 

Challenge MSS was asked to design custom wooden crates and select packaging materials that could be reproduced without flaw. The client wanted a clear, concise, and proven industrial packaging process that would deliver results without rejection from the regulatory body.

Description
The medical device manufacturer has a designated ISO 13485 certification and its product line and all associated packaging must always adhere to strict pharmaceutical packaging guidelines or risk rejection. Reliable and repeatable results were critical, and MSS had the experience and resources needed to complete the job.  
 

Planning
During the planning process, all of the client’s specific needs regarding their product lines were ascertained. The client supplied product drawings, which we verified and combined with measurements of “as built” devices to generate exact crate and packing specifications. As packaging consultants, meetings with the engineering, manufacturing, and shipping departments were equally crucial in educating the client with the best packaging and crating options.

Process 
Based on the planning and consulting stages, MSS created prototype shipping crates. These crates, consisting of engineered foam compartments, access ramps, and customized boxes, were sent to an all-inclusive package testing facility where they were subjected to real world challenges for multiple shipping scenarios. All testing followed highly-recognized standardized procedures established by ASTM, ISTA, UNDOT and TAPPI. 
  
Results
As packaging consultants, MSS provided our client with a packing and shipping scenario that guaranteed product integrity on an ongoing basis.

MSS Precision Crating is a trusted built-to-order crate builder. We work with businesses in manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, and aerospace that require ISO certified crating and packaging for hassle free shipment and relocation. Learn more about our previous projects in these areas:
