Cradles & Skids

Elevating Shipping and Storage Standards with Custom Pac’s Custom Cradles & Skids

In the complex world of logistics, the stability, safety, and integrity of goods during transport and storage are paramount. This is where cradles and skids, often unsung heroes of the shipping industry, play a crucial role. Custom Pac, a leader in providing bespoke packaging solutions, elevates these foundational elements to new heights with custom designs tailored to the unique needs of various industries.

The Backbone of Logistics

Understanding Cradles & Skids

Cradles and skids are essential for the safe and efficient handling of goods. Unlike pallets, which are primarily flat structures for stacking, cradles are designed to hold items securely in place, often accommodating curved surfaces or irregular shapes. Skids, the older cousin of the pallet, offer a stable platform for heavy machinery and large items, making them indispensable in industrial shipping and storage. Together, these platforms ensure that products, from delicate equipment to hefty machinery, arrive at their destination unscathed.


The Key to Enhanced Safety and Efficiency

The one-size-fits-all approach falls short in the face of diverse product specifications and shipping requirements. Custom Pac understands this, emphasizing the creation of custom cradles and skids that perfectly match the contours, weight, and size of each item. This meticulous customization not only bolsters safety but also optimizes space, potentially lowering shipping costs and minimizing environmental impact.

Materials Matter

Commitment to Durability and Sustainability

Choosing the right materials is critical in the creation of effective cradles and skids. Custom Pac opts for materials that offer the best combination of strength, durability, and minimal environmental impact. From renewable wood resources to recyclable metals and composites, the company’s commitment to sustainability is evident in every product, ensuring that clients receive eco-friendly solutions without compromising on quality.
