Custom Crating

Get just the right crates for the job, when and where you need them.

Put a stop to non-stop interruptions

When your supplier finally finds lumber for your crates, but your shipment’s already late.

Your customers don’t care what’s going on in the lumber market, they expect their deliveries in full and on time. PLA has built long-standing relationships with lumber suppliers over three decades of partnership, working closely with them to maintain 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 3 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 your volume is too small for anyone to bother.

Plenty of people will quote your high-volume crates, but no one wants to take on the specialty stuff. Maybe they don’t have the right equipment, or maybe it’s just too much hassle. PLA sees our customers differently: our job is to help you get what you need, when and where you need it.
