Crating

Leave the crating to usExpert crating solutions to protect your shipments

No matter what size shipment, it needs to get there safely. Forklifts, trucks, warehouses, air and ocean freighters can give your cargo a beating - unless it is properly crated using the right materials.

Aries has over 35 years of experience in manufacturing wood crates, pallets, and skids. The team offers:

  1. Expert, in-house crating experts to advise you on the right materials for your shipment
  2. Fully customized crating options that protect your investment
  3. Fully customizable stenciling options that identify your shipment

We make it easy to figure out the right materials that avoid unnecessary damage.

Over $6 billion in losses happens each year, with over two-thirds ($4 billion) attributed to “poor practices at the time of packing goods into a freight container.”
