With the light-weight nature of Aerospace parts and assemblies, traditional wood crates are often 70-80% of the total shipment weight. Ecorrcrates® are significantly lighter weight as compared to wood crates (40-75% lighter) making them much easier to handle as well as securing freight savings of 15-30%, on average. With rapidly escalating freight costs, it is more important than ever to reduce the shipping weight to capture shipping cost savings.

Less Materials

Given the delicate nature of Aerospace parts and assemblies, improved packaging performance is essential.  To highlight this point, a large majority of wood crates must be lined with foam to protect the parts from the wood. Literally it takes more packaging to protect the parts from the packaging?! That looks like double-work to us, not LEAN at all. This is completely unnecessary when shipping in Ecorrcrate. Ecorrcrate materials are made from very strong and durable, yet more flexible and cushioning paper-based material that better protects products in transit. Our Aerospace customers have been able to significantly reduce or eliminate shipping damage.  No more re-work due to shipping damage, that’s HUGE!

Water Resistant

Unlike wood packaging, Ecorrcrates are highly water resistant (virtually waterproof).  If your application is sensitive to damage from moisture, Ecorrcrate has you covered.  Our customers also report a significant increase in the efficacy of desiccants and vapor corrosion inhibitors (VCI’s) when used in conjunction with Ecorrcrate.
