Export Corporation provides stable and sturdy wood packaging for many industries, including automotive, military, defense, industrial, commercial, and aerospace. We design and build custom wood crates, custom pallets, and more that can securely hold products, tools, or equipment. 

Wood packaging offers exceptional protection for shipped products. Our custom crates and packages are sturdy enough to withstand vibrations and jostling when on trucks, airplanes, ships, and trains, yet they are lighter and more cost-effective than metal containers.

Military Boxes & Crates

We can custom-design wood crates and boxes to safely transport military tools and equipment. In fact, military packaging is our specialty. We build wood products in compliance with many military codes and regulations, including MIL-STD-1186, MIL-STD-129P, MIL-STD-2073, and more. By stringently following these regulations, we ensure our customers stay in compliance at all times.

Custom Wood Crates & Boxes

Customized wood crates and boxes provide companies with immense benefits when they need durable packaging for irregularly shaped products or when shipping delicate equipment. Our custom wood packaging crates help companies reduce shipping costs and minimize damage. We also ensure that our wooden crates and boxes can be easily assembled and disassembled.

Custom Pallets

As a trusted packaging company in Michigan, our customers know they can count on us for high-quality, cost-effective, and durable custom pallets and bases. We custom-design and engineer pallets for both large single products and multiple wrapped products.


Export Corporation specializes in the design and engineering of custom skids for any size part, product, or machine. Skids are similar to pallets except they do not have a bottom deck. This feature allows the skid to be dragged and offers nestable options.

Kit Packs

Kit packs allow for the easy transport of product components that will later be assembled. They are designed to hold all parts for a specific application for staging, and keep them organized. Ordering kit packs through us is easy: you send us your parts, we design a kit crate from your specifications, provide assembly if applicable, pack and distribute it to the next or end destination.

Dunnage Capabilities

Products may shift and move inside wooden crates, boxes, and other custom wood packaging. Dunnage is loose wood or matting that protects your products while inside the crates or boxes. 

Our dunnage capabilities include:

– Custom Foam-in Place
– Shock-Absorbent Materials
– Custom Foam
– Moisture Barrier Crating
– Shrink Wrap
– Foam Padding
– Plastic Carpet
– Fabricated Wood

We also offer returnable, reusable, and expendable dunnage. Call today to learn more.
