Fully Compliant Processes

We can ensure compliance with all necessary requirements, including decoding, using the correct spec materials, applying them correctly, preserving, packaging, packing, and marking in accordance with all of the relevant specifications.

We’re confident that you’ll find our integrity is up to your standards. From engineering MIL-SPEC crates to designing custom packaging for government entities, Craters & Freighters Nashville goes above and beyond, ensuring that each of our responsible and safe standards is met.

MIL-SPEC Packaging

MIL-SPEC packaging is packaging that meets all of the delineated military specifications. There are several MIL-SPEC packaging plans, each with its own list of standards to meet. Every piece of criteria must be adhered to in order for the packaging to be labeled MIL-SPEC. When an asset gets a MIL-SPEC label, the military knows it has met its packaging standards.

When you work with our Nashville MIL-SPEC packaging company, we deliver on our promise to meet all military regulations and stay in compliance with your guidelines.

Vapor Barrier Packaging

We will provide vapor barrier packaging whenever sensitive or bare metal assets are traveling by sea and put at risk. Corrosion from saltwater and humidity can significantly impact the way your assets perform. Our custom packaging team will place your item into a vapor barrier bag and heat-seal it for a damage-free arrival.

On-Site Packaging & Crating

If you can’t get your military or government asset to our warehouse for crating, we’ll come to yours. Our on-site crating and packaging professionals will design and engineer MIL-SPEC crates at your location with the same high-quality materials and attention to detail. No matter where we build your crate, we ensure it will meet all levels of government regulations.
