Get Crating Services That Fit Just Right

Boost your on-time delivery rate with the custom crates and crating services you need, when and where you need them.

Put a stop to non-stop interruptions

When your supplier delays impact your on-time delivery.

Your customers don’t care what’s going on in the lumber market they expect their deliveries in full and on schedule. PLA has built decades-long relationships with lumber vendors to deliver reliable crating services, including supply, when markets are tight.

When you realize a small design change could have saved you millions.

PLA doesn’t just take your spec and shop it out to anyone who’ll take the job. We’ve built custom pallets and crates for over three decades, and we take the time to understand your product and customers’ requirements. Then, we can suggest design and/or material modifications that meet your needs and lower your costs.

When vendors go MIA for your lower-volume or custom orders.

Plenty of people will quote for high-volume crates, but vendors that provide custom crate services are in short supply. Maybe they don’t have the right equipment, or maybe it’s just too much hassle. PLA specializes in custom designs at the right scale for your needs.
