Ecorrcrate® Corrugated Crates are a lower cost, higher performance shipping crate

Kalama, WA; August 2020  Lumber prices are on the move again but not in the right direction, which means that Wood shipping crate prices are skyrocketing.  Dan Bonebrake, inventor and creator of ECORRCRATE, is ready for the challenge.

“With our patented corrugated crate the prices are much more stable and reliable.  Our customers can stay on budget and better forecast their expected future crate costs.  Our ECORRCRATE customers are not feeling the effects of increased lumber pricing and continue to benefit from a durable, easy to use, sustainable product that lowers shipping costs and reduces warehouse storage space”

Lumber Prices Continue to Rise

According to a recent article in Barron’s1 magazine, Lumber prices in the 2nd Quarter of 2020 jumped nearly 60% over 1st Quarter 2020 pricing.  In the conclusion of the article, Greg Kuta, president of lumber broker Westline Capital Strategies says it doesn’t look like it is getting better any time soon.

“… the trend for lumber prices is still up, until demand begins to “show signs of slowing and production catches up with existing demand,” says Kuta, who sees prices in the range of $300 to $500 for the rest of 2020.”

When faced with higher prices, companies are forced to either consider lower quality wooden materials or search for alternative options.
