    “Bug Stamp” Crates for international Shipping

    Custom Crating and Logistics also makes international freight shipment easier by offering ISPM 15 heat-treated wood containers. Many foreign nations mandate that all wooden crates shipping from the United States be heat treated to lessen the danger of insect infestation. These boxes require an official stamp known as the “bug stamp” or ISPM 15 mark, certifying that the container fulfills international shipping regulations.

    Each of our facilities is well-versed in ISPM 15 wood crating, is subject to monthly inspections, and is obliged to document all incoming and exiting wood kinds from their warehouse. Just because heat-treated wood is used to construct a wood crate does not imply that it is approved for international shipping. That’s where we can help.

    Custom Crating and Logistics offers specialized advice on export crate construction and shipment.

    Expert In International Export

    Custom Crating and Logistics is a renowned expert in international export packaging and crating from the United States. Each Custom Crating and Logistics facility has its insect stamp number used on all foreign wood boxes shipped from their warehouse. When the package arrives at a foreign port, officials may track it back to its origin in the United States to ensure the crate wood is compliant.

    Our shipments are transported without incident since we are certified and have decades of expertise in customs clearance. If containers do not pass the inspection, foreign authorities have the authority to fumigate or destroy your shipment without prior notice. We recognize that exported wood crates require special care. We provide dock-to-port and dock-to-door solutions to make even the most complex international shipping operation a breeze.

    International ocean services

    Over 90% of global trade is handled by sea and even more in some countries. Ocean freight is shipping containerized cargo loaded onto ships by sea.

    Generally, shipments weighing more than 100kg or multiple boxes will be shipped by sea freight. The containers are intended for intermodal freight transportation. It implies that the containers may be utilized across several modes of transport from the ship to rail to the truck without unloading and reloading the goods. Custom Crating and Logistics facilitates the expansion of small and medium-sized businesses. We not only link your business worldwide, but we also streamline your end-to-end logistics.

    Custom Crating and Logistics provides a variety of ocean importing and exporting alternatives to fit your transportation requirements.

    Our team of seasoned shipping specialists will assist you. We’ll get your package moving and keep you updated on its progress using our online shipping tools. Custom Crating and Logistics can help you with LCL (less than container load) and FCL (full container load) shipping to guarantee your consignment is securely kept and transported safely to its final destination.

    Custom Crating and Logistics provide reasonable pricing and secure space. All documentation and value-added extras are handled by the network of our offices, ensuring that your shipment arrives on time. We can schedule your cargo, arrange for collection and delivery, and manage all import/export documents from almost any location worldwide. Our professionals will manage your ocean shipment from start to finish based on your cargo’s readiness date, shipment size, and equipment requirements.

    FCL shipping is the most efficient and cost-effective technique of container transportation. FCL comprises only one shipper and one consignee. It means you do not share container space with other shippers. Many shippers opt to ship FCL rather than filling the container to simplify the operation and avoid risk.

    We propose less-than-container load shipping when shippers do not have enough cargo to fill a whole 20-foot or 40-foot container. Consolidated shipments of loose goods that are often packed, palletized, or Crated are called LCL. LCL is less expensive because the cost of a full container is divided among numerous shippers; nonetheless, the rate per equivalent weight of an LCL cargo will be significantly greater than that of a full container load (FCL). Although you will be sharing a container with other shippers, LCL allows you to maintain sight and control over your goods.

    A refrigerated storage container is a unique container with a refrigerated engine. It enables the transport of temperature-sensitive items such as fruits, vegetables, dairy products, meat, chocolate, wine, medications, and chemicals. We use these containers for the secure transportation of your heat-sensitive products across the borders. 

    Breakbulk shipping refers to goods that must be put onto a vessel separately than in a shipping container. Due to its massive size and weight, breakbulk cargo will not fit into a container. We will handle your broken bulk shipment, which may include heavy machinery, large equipment, infrastructure building materials, granite blocks, rolling stock, oil well supplies, and other forms of project cargo. Our expert operations staff will transport your shipment from door to door, regardless of any unique requirements you may have.
