Specialist Crate Design
Logos Logistics custom design and construct bespoke crates specifically tailored to customer need and the specific ergonomic requirements of the valuable and sensitive equipment. Consideration is given around the entire handling operation to ensure safe and efficient design which minimises movement or shifting during transit. They then prototype and test the new crate designs in partnership with their customer, ensuring safe, secure, and effective crating solutions that are transportation ready.
Logos Logistics work in close partnership with their supply chain to select the highest quality protective packaging to insulate the equipment from environmental factors. They construct crating solutions using plywood and timber for versatility, strength, and its unique ability to provide shock absorption and protection against possible impact. Various techniques are employed such as strapping, bracing, or blocking to immobilise the equipment and distribute the forces evenly. This ensures that the item remains in a fixed position, reducing the risk of any possible damage.
Logos Logistics’ team are professionally trained on international standards to adhere to regulations and guidelines related to packaging, transportation, and handling of specific items. They guarantee the crate meets the necessary safety standards and legal requirements associated with the shipping method and will work alongside the customer to ensure the equipment is packed to the correct specifications.
Logos crates are made from Responsibly Sourced Wood. The wood is harvested by following strict environmental and social standards, including sustainable logging practices, reforestation efforts, and protection of biodiversity. Logos Logistics are ISPM15 accredited for the manufacturing of wood packaging material. Logos Logistics have innovated their manufacturing process to increase sustainability by optimising material usage, recycling, and reusing wood packaging to reduce the environmental impact at the end of their lifecycle. The organisation is also exploring alternative materials to enhance performance and minimise environmental impact.
