124Preparing for Transport

At the request of Riverside Automation, a local machining company, Boulter was asked to prepare two large pieces of equipment for overseas transport.  Before preparing these machines for shipment, we participated in several pre-project meetings to discuss safety, scheduling, materials, and equipment requirements. After the initial planning, the next phase of the project was to provide the necessary packing, crating, rigging and breakdown support.


To ensure that the bulky equipment arrived at its destination in the same condition as it left Riverside’s facility, Boulter utilized our custom crating and packaging process for international shipping.  This involved the use of customized materials including shrinkable marine wrap, stretch wrap, steel banding, poly strapping, polylam and ethafoam cushioning, heat sealable barriers, and desiccants. With the use of wooden packaging materials that are ISPM-15 certified for export shipment, we secured the equipment to crating and skid bases, applied corrosion inhibitor, sealed and vacuumed barrier bags, and implemented additional crating closures. The entire crating and packaging process was executed at the client’s facility.


The Resul

After completing another successful project at Riverside Automation, we were thrilled when we received recognition from Riverside’s Operations Manager Jeremy Duell.

“The professionals at Boulter Industrial Contractors have packaged and transported all of our overseas equipment with an unsurpassed level of quality.  We have had zero complaints from our customers and will continue to utilize the services provided by Boulter Industrial Contractors on all future shipments.”

We look forward to continuing our partnership with Riverside Automation in the future.
