Boulter was contacted by QED for a two-part project that involved relocating one Q22-600 machine and its accessories to Boulter’s warehouse and preparing the equipment for overseas transport.
Boulter’s rigging crew removed the machine from the location and transported it using a Landoll trailer. Once it arrived at our warehouse and was ready for the custom crating and packaging process, Boulter’s crating shop prepared the equipment using materials like bubble wrap, desiccant, vacuum seal, stretch wrap, and Shockwatch and Tip-n-Tell indicators to ensure safe transport for the equipment traveling overseas.
