We have all heard horror stories about in-transit damage of goods and the cost that these damages entail. Much as business owners and decision-makers would want to mitigate the cost implications of damages, there really are blind spots and several touchpoints in the supply chain that can cause damage to the items being transported.
One of the main considerations when transporting bulk items is the packaging and ensuring that the goods are secure from the time they are loaded on the vehicle to unloading them upon reaching the destination. Decision makers have 3 main considerations: Security, Utility and Sustainability – and Wooden Crates check all the boxes.
Wooden Crates are undeniably one of the most secure methods to transport goods. These crates are made of timber, and are usually customised to fit the specific requirements of the cargo, thus goods are packed properly preventing damage whilst in transit.

Businesses that rely heavily on supply chains need to have this plan in place to prevent businesses from incurring additional cost or negatively affecting business relationships due to unfulfilled agreements. The best route is to lock in a reliable transport packaging partner who has expertise and can provide peace of mind that their cargo is properly packed and will arrive safely.
