Diversified Crating & Packaging, Inc. quotes and manufactures custom shipping containers and custom shipping crates from client supplied drawings and blueprints. Our staff is extremely knowledgeable with all types of custom foam, hardware and paint requirements, as well as all ASTM, Military and Federal Specifications for all of your custom shipping box and custom crating needs. We employ Commercial & Best Shop Practices for every custom shipping box.

Diversified recognizes the worth of partnership and entirely partners with the packaging engineers throughout the manufacturing process to ensure that the custom shipping containers meet the client’s expectations. The final product is completed on-time and correctly, so the client's big picture timeline is not disturbed in any way.

Be assured, because we understand the importance of packaging engineering, we do not substitute plywood, lumber, hardware, foam or paint requirements when building custom shipping containers. If the drawing or packaging instructions for your custom shipping crate demand a specific standard, we will build that custom shipping crate to that standard or better.

Custom Shipping Container Materials

As required by local fire department, we provide custom storage shipping containers with fire-retardant paint, wood, plywood and foam.

For custom shipping containers that necessitate weather proofing, we use Exterior Latex paint to help protect the product from various weather conditions. We also provide weather stripping and waterproofed L2 craft paper for overseas custom shipping crates. Barrier bags and desiccant are offered as needed.

Epoxy paint creates a hard, smooth surface to protect products from dust. It is perfect for clean room applications. The product is patched, sanded and primed to remove all crevices and seams before applying Epoxy finish, making the custom shipping container clean room acceptable.

Our great relationship with our foam vendors helps ensure that the proper type, density and shape of foam protect your product. Whether it is a simple foam-line box or an intricate die-cut, cushioning of all varieties and shapes is available.

In order to properly cushion and protect the product, different densities and thicknesses of foam are used depending on the weight of the product. Our vast supply of foam includes:

  • EPS
  • Ester
  • Fire Retardant Foam
  • Polyurethane

Anti-Static Foam (used for sensitive electronic equipment)

  • Polylam
