Microchip Mfg Machinery Barrier Bag Shipping
Microchip machinery requires packing detail excellence. Knowledge of the different types of packaging available for any certain item based on its method of transportation is vital.

Gateway Crate and Freight Barrier Bagged 3 of these machines to protect against the elements of International Ocean Sea Shipping. 

Barrier Bagging is the process of vacuum sucking the air out of a heat -sealed bag while placing a Dessicant in the bag. This bag is custom made to the size of the machine and is heat sealed at the base. This helps protect the machine from moisture during ocean shipping.

ISPM-15 compliant Wood Packing Material (WPM) is used to further protect these machines and adhere to International shipping compliance standards. A full wood crate adds another level of protection while also providing a mechanism to block and brace the machine to protect it during transport.

A 2" PE foam was used to provide some protection to the glass framing and to give some shock absorption to the machine for transport 

We Blocked and Braced these 3 full crates into a 40' container for shipment overseas.

Gateway Crate and Freight teams specialize in quality custom packing design and can provide the utmost protection to your items whether they are shipping down the street or across the world.

Give our team a call for a free estimate when you have high value, fragile, calibrating machinery.

Telephone Booth Kiosks Crated Shipped to Serbia
These telephone booths are actually public kiosks computer kiosks. Used at an airport or train station, these booths can be used to hop into and get your laptop out and do some work with the help of a little noise reduction.

Gateway was tasked with picking up, packing, creating custom crates and shipping these units to Serbia.

A VCI wrap (Blue Shrink wrap) was used to protect the electrical components (lighting, electrical outlets) during ocean freight shipping. Polypropylene foam was used to protect the units in the crates.

Custom wood crates were used for shipping these large units. The palletized base on the crates helped with the loading and unloading and with blocking and bracing in the container. 

If you have a unique project where you need to move/pack/ship large valuable fragile items going overseas give us a call to discuss your options. 855-474-4685.

Gateway Crate and Freight is an IPPC certified WPM Export Facility.
F-18 Model Plane Crate and Pack Expo
F18 Model Plane Pack and Ship
This 8 foot long model airplane is the centerpiece of our clients Trade Show presentation. They were looking for a reusable crate that could be used for each time they needed to ship this plane to the next expo.

We designed a cradle housing for the plane that allowed the bulk of the pressure to be on the fuselage which is the sturdiest part of the model. The cradle took pressure off the landing gear and allowed the plane to sit in foam while strapped with Velcro.

The Velcro holds the plane into position as well as the wings which come off the plane and are also safely placed on foam and Velcro strapped to the floor.

Cradle holding system was designed so that there was only one way for the plane to be placed back into the crate for the return home. The wings also have only one way each will fit back under the plane inside the sheet foam and Velcro straps.

The finished product is a fully cleated crate that includes two separate pieces for the top and reinforced sidewalls with extra 1x4 cleating. 

If you need trade show displays or items to easily ship and return back home give us a call to provide a free quote for your custom crating and packing needs 855-474-4685
ISPM-15 Mat Wood Crates to Singapore  
Lab Data Table Crate and Ship
A lab facility was closed down and its machinery and assets needed to be sent to its other facilities around the world. We crated and packed 37 different large, heavy but delicate machinery pieces for destinations like Singapore, Taiwan and Vietnam.

When crating and packing, it is important to remember that all W.P.M (Wood Packing Material) must meet international certification standards. The WPM for all materials is regulated by the IPPC. All W.P.M must be Heat Treated, Kiln Dried or fumigated with Methyl Bromide. 

To ensure compliance, each country issues a certification number to each facility the meets the standards of the IPPC and then is authorized to make crates and provide packing in compliance with these international regulations. Gateway Crate and Freight is a certified facility (License US-20468).

This series of pictures is the packing, wrapping, blocking, bracing and crating of a table and lab equipment going to Singapore. We take great care in the pickup, packing, crating and shipping of all valuable equipment in our care.

You need to ship International? Do you need to properly protect your items shipping out of the country via air or ocean, give our experts a call 480-966-0795 or toll free 855-474-4685.

Computer Data Servers Crate Pack and Ship 
Computer server shipping
Computer and data processing equipment requires the right packaging especially when the equipment carries live data.

Gateway Crate and Freight has crated, packed and shipped numerous data processing devices. Including entire data warehouses and call centers.

This was a smaller job but important none the less. These 6 data servers had to be packed to sufficiently protect the data. We use E.S.D wrap, it prevents Electrostatic Discharge from damaging the computer drives. E.S.D occurs during shipping when packaging rubs on exposed metal connected to the circuit boards in the computer.

We used 2" and 1" T-Lam foam to reduce vibration during transport. Shipping on Air Ride equipped trailers makes a difference too in protecting sensitive equipment.

Our shipping services always take into account how a package should ride. We always want to use the appropriate equipment to get the job done right.

If you have computer data equipment you need picked up packed and shipped give us a call for a free estimate.     
Bronze Statue Crate Pack and Ship  
Bronze Statue Crating
Gateway Crate and Freight has been packing and shipping a number of Bronze statues lately: Horses, an eagle and this patriotic bronze statue all this week. 

We take great pride in packing and blocking and bracing these works of art, although the bronze itself is pretty sturdy some of the marble and wood bases and connections can be fragile due to the weight and size of the piece.

That's why we use plenty of t-lam Foam under and around the base. The one inch gray foam you see under the base absorbs the vibration in transit. We then fit the base into a 2" T-Lam foam to secure the wood/marble base into place while providing a soft strong cushion.

The bronze is then held into place with some foam padded 2 X 4's. This secures the bronze in place while shipping, holding the base in the foam and preventing the bronze from touching the sides of the crate. 

We run a 1 X 4 stapled cleating around the plywood to give it a firm lock for all the walls. We always palletize bottom our crates to ensure that the crate can easily be moved by material handling equipment.   

This artist brings all of his statues to us, he knows that his hard work is well protected. He also relies on us to ship his items. We have shipped his statues across the country and around the world. 

If you have one of a kind statuary or a valuable piece of art, give one of our art packing and shipping experts a call to get a free quote. We ensure shipping success by crating, packing and shipping your items above and beyond carrier specifications.
