As a traffic and logistics manager at a number of large global corporations I had the not so pleasurable duty of shipping to and from large expositions and trade shows. Over the years we have come to understand all the details involved in properly scheduling a trade show event. A key component to a successful event is the safe timely arrival and departure of materials.


Custom crating or Custom packing, including properly palletizing all your freight is the key component in safely transporting your items from point A to point B. Gateway and Freight can claim we are specialists at trade show and exposition packing crating and shipping. Why? Because we have done this for years.


Whether your materials require specialty crates or just simply need to be properly palletized, Gateway Crate and Freight can recommend the right option for you.


Visit our Industrial machinery page to learn about our packing, crating and shipping process for large and fragile machinery. Many of the machines we have crated up or palletized and shipped are for export. We understand the needs and the process of packing, crating and shipping this type of machinery.


We are an ISPM-15 certified crating company which means we can create wood crates, pallets and packaging as well as providing proper dunnage for international shipments. Make sure your international shipment is not hung up in customs because of improper packing materials were used. For more information about this process visit our crating page.

Packing Exercise Equipment
Packing Equipment
We have a client who developed their own exercise machine and now sells these to gyms and individuals across the U.S. 

Packing the machine with its fly wheel design is challenging. keeping the machine in one position during transportation requires unique packaging.

Protecting the finish on the new machines requires some foam sheeting, shrink wrap and banding. Custom made pallets and boxes also help with keeping the freight cost down by providing adequate size protection when shipping with other freight but also not using too much materials in providing that protection.

Gateway Crate and Freight custom packs items for the right balance of protection and economical freight costs.
