Find the Best Shipping Cases

Aug 17, 2007
The term "shipping case" encompasses all types of bags, boxes, totes, barrels, ISO containers, crates, trunks, and other vessels used for transporting materials from one place to another.

While there are many types of box and container that one might consider a shipping case, the common perception is that these will be among the most durable containers available due to their time in transit and the challenges of modern package moving technology and personnel.

Robustly constructed cases ensure maximum protection for scientific, industrial, commercial, or military equipment and instruments. A high-quality transit case should be constructed of high-quality materials. Better transportation cases are extremely well built to assure safe transit of their contents. They are lightweight, incredibly rugged, and flexible. A high-quality case is usually designed in such a manner that it can carry and store sophisticated items safely and securely.

For safe transit in hazardous conditions shipping cases must be durable and weather-resistant.

Shipping cases are available in a variety of materials such as aluminum, plastic, foam, fiberglass, hardwood, etc. The production processes of shipping cases differ from case to case, depending on the application. Examples includes custom shipping cases, tool crib shipping containers, plastic shipping containers, insulated shipping containers, plastic shipping cases, plastic shipping crates, ocean shipping containers, steel shipping containers, and Styrofoam shipping containers. Intermediate bulk containers (IBC) and flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBC) are also available.

Advances in technologies used in the production of boxes and shipping containers have changed the way the packaging industry transports goods to various destinations. You can avoid loss or damage of goods during transportation by using the appropriate shipping cases. Fiberglass cases offer greater convenience when compared to cases made from other materials.

If you're traveling to a trade show, the last thing you want to worry about is whether or not your materials will arrive safely. Trade-show shipping cases help you to expand your business by safely and effectively transporting your trade-show displays from one venue to another.

Considerations for choosing the right shipping cases include volume capacity, weight capacity, tare weight, diameter, length, width, and height. Features common to shipping containers and shipping cases include collapsibility, handles, EMI/RFI shielding, covers, hazardous materials storage, locks or restricted access, stack-ability, and mobility (wheels).

Today, all manner of improved transport boxes offer better quality, durability, and safety than ever before. A customer can choose a shipping case based on his or her specific requirements. All shipping cases, regardless of size or shape, will help to keep your trade-show displays in solid condition and will last for many years.
