“Quality boxes and cases made for YOU”

Plywood Battened Cases

Two wooden shipping crates ready for loading onto a delivery vehicle

Commonly used for air-freight cargo because of their light and sturdy construction. Typical plywood thickness can range from 6mm to 22mm to meet specific customer requirements.

Planed timber battens are used on the sides, ends and lid so that the cases are strong, presentable, printable and reusable if required. The bases are constructed to suit the weight and distribution of the item being packed with the option of fully boarded softwood between 18-50mm thick with forklift runners and bearers.

Our Plywood cases can also include Polythene Blue Liner – which protects contents from rain splash, Foil Bag for protection of sensitive electrical components, and shock proof material to protect delicate equipment whilst in transit and shrink wrapping for other general consignments.

Depending on the thickness of the plywood case boards to design and construct the case, it maybe cheaper to use full timber case.

Our timber cases and crates can be manufactured to meet specific requirements, carefully designed to offer the most appropriate level of protection for any product of any shape or size.

All our products are manufactured using ISPM 15 compliant wooden materials allowing our clients and theirs to ship packages between countries throughout the world.

Typical uses include: Machinery, machine parts, engineering products, electronic equipment, metal, aviation products, medical and laboratory equipment and M.O.D equipment and systems.

Customer Review

Abid Khalil


Can I take this opportunity to thank you and your colleagues for the excellent service you have provided. The crate was manufactured to a high quality and complied with the Kodak specification and drawings.

The outbound and return transport was similarly managed to a high level of service quality with excellent communication throughout and with due consideration to our demand for rapid delivery to the vendor in the US and return to our factory in Harrow, so that we could meet planned project dates.

Quality boxes and cases made just for you.
