Custom Container

 
DALE, IN – Universal Package built a custom shipping box for an automotive supply company.  The one-of-a-kind plastic container is 146” long by 48” wide, by 50” tall, it has four drop doors and a 2,500 lb. weight capacity.
 
By replacing a smaller, non-collapsible container with a custom made, collapsible custom shipping container, Universal Package was able to increase the customer’s return ratio from 1:1 to 2:1. 
 
This attribute alone provided the ROI needed for its customer to justify construction of custom containers.  

Drop doors on each of the four sides were added to the configuration to provide easy access to its contents from any side, while custom dunnage was designed to hold product securely and safely. 
 
The custom shipping box is made of durable HDPE with Steel Fork inserts and features 4-way fork lift entry.  Universal Package's advanced cut and weld techniques guarantee container integrity and durability even at extreme dimensions.
