Our services


The manufacture of client specific crates ensures that your cargo is well positioned and secured within the crate which is suitable and durable to undergo multiple handling. With a well experienced and dedicated team, we ensure that all your crating requirements are well taken care of. This also ensures a more cost-effective option.


On site we utilise a VGM Mobile Weighing System. The VGM of the container once packed includes GPS location, load distribution, Container and Seal numbers as well as the clients name and reference. This information will be emailed directly to the shipping line for submission.
