Breakbulk Shipping

Boxing, Crating, Skidding, and Packing

Breakbulk Shipping

Texas International Freight prepares cargo for export packing using export-rated wood on our pallets, crates, and skids. We use ISPM 15 wood or particleboard for air shipments and we can provide several different levels of protection by using wax paper, shrink wrapping, vacuum packing, and desiccation. We can also offer full container fumigation.  Lastly, we can build whatever is needed for export – saddles, skids, heavy timbered sleds, etc.

Material Receiving

Export Packing

Texas International Freight checks all material received against export documentation as part of our export packing process.

At Texas International Freight, our dedicated team creates Material Receipts for our valued customers, ensuring the safe delivery of goods while minimizing any potential issues such as overages, shortages, or missing pieces. Trust us to handle your shipping needs with utmost care and precision.

Export Packing

Off-site mobilization of export packing crews to a manufacturer’s facilities is available on request. At Texas International Freight, we offer the flexibility of sending our expert crews to assist with crate creation at the port or any other necessary locations. Our packing crews are expert workmen who have many years in the industry.

Export Packing

Staging and Storing

Project Logistics Services

Texas International offers thousands of square feet of warehousing space and approximately 30 acres of staging grounds near the Port of Houston.

We also have access to similarly sized lots and export packing facilities in almost every major port in the U.S., such as Savannah, Chicago, LA, Seattle, New York/New Jersey, and Baltimore, to name a few.

We have warehouse facilities for putting smaller pieces on skids and pallets and for very large pieces of break bulk cargo, we have large yards fitted with heavy duty gantry cranes.

Some know that we are an export packing company for large projects like moving factories or installing refineries. However, we also are an export packing company for smaller freight that needs crating, skidding, and palletizing.

We can work offsite or cut costs by bringing your cargo to our yards. We can export pack for air, ocean, and hazardous materials.

We’ve been helpful as an export packing company for large, multi-million dollar break bulk projects to more normal, run-of-the-mill work making small crates for air freight shipping.

Furthermore, we have a range of export packing services in Houston, and we partner with a few specialists to provide the best export crating solution for your need.

  • Crating and Packing
  • Hood boxing/crating
  • Strapping, skidding and bundling (for cargo like pipe and rebar)

Most countries require ISPM 15 compliant packing when cargo enters their territory. Some countries demand even more specialized compliance. Australia and New Zealand demand letters or certificates of compliance from the party who has export packed the material. Chile demands fumigation of used equipment with special chemical treatments. It’s important to know these things before cargo is loaded on to the vessel. At that point it is too late.

To be sure you are not risking your cargo to damage or to rejection by a foreign country’s customs authorities, contact a reputable export packing company like Texas International Freight. Our export crating services offer reliability, security, cost saving solutions for your freight.
