Order Wooden Crates or Cases With Ease

Most global distributors consider wood the best material for packing, transporting, and storing contents. Wooden pallets are also sustainable – renewable, reusable, recyclable, and biodegradable, reducing waste and helping to preserve the planet’s resources.

As a result, many companies rely on wooden – often customised – trays for safe product transport, loading, unloading, and storage. Countless industries also benefit from versatile wooden crates and cases, providing a partial or complete frame for packages and platforms. However, when do you need a pallet, and when is a crate or case better?

Choosing Between Timber Crates, Cases, and Pallets

When should you choose a pallet, crate, or case? Let’s explore the pros and cons of each:



Pallets are a good choice when shipping high volumes. They are strong and weather resistant and capable of significant load bearing. In addition, we can customise pallets to ensure product safety. Loading and unloading are fast, easy, and safe for workers, with optimised shipping costs.



Wooden crates are customised to suit specific needs. Wooden crates are ideal for transporting large, heavy items, with spaces between boards to allow essential ventilation for your products.



A fully enclosed case helps keep lightweight, fragile or valuable objects secure – a feature pallets don’t offer. Meanwhile, loading and unloading containers is less straightforward than handling pallets.

Cases, crates, and pallets boost the safety, speed, management, and cost-effectiveness of logistics. Choosing the ideal combination will depend on what you’re shipping. Pallets are the lighter, cheaper option in comparison to crates and cases. For high-value or fragile cargo, choose crates or cases.
